The political leader Mahatma Gandhi said, “In a gentle way you can shake the world.” Following are some things to mull over on how to do The Great spiritual leader Mahatma Gandhi once said, “In a gentle way you can shake the world.” Here are some ideas to mull over on how to do it:

1. Realize that all major change all throughout history has occurred not because of governments, nations, armies and certainly not committees. They transpired as an end result of the daring and commitment of personalities. People like Albert Einstein, Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Ark and Thomas Edison might not have done it unaided, but they were, without a shadows of doubt, the makers of change.

2. Trust that you have a unique purpose and potential in the world. It’s not so much something to conceive as to be found. And it’s up to you to learn it. Have faith that you are capable of making and will make a difference.

3. Comprehend that , every move you make, every sentence you write, every remark you speak (or don’t speak) matters. Nothing is insignificant. The globe may be extensive, but there are no lesser things. Everything counts.

4. To be the agent of revolution you wish to see in the earth, you don’t need to be voluble. You don’t have to be eloquent. You don’t have to be elected. You don’t even have to be remarkably smart or well educated. You do, however, have to be dedicated.

5. Take accountability. Don’t ever think “it’s not my job”. It’s an excuse to say, “What can I do, I’m only one human being.” You don’t need everyone’s help or anybody’s authorization to initiate change. Remember this short proverb, “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”

6. Don’t get delayed in the how of things. If you’re confident on what you want to alter and the reason why you want to change it, the how will come. Lots of important things have been left undone because somebody let the problem solving hamper the decision-making.

7. Don’t wait for things to be right for you to commence. Change is tricky. Things will never ever be perfect. As Ted Roosevelt once said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

8. The beginning of change is consciousness. We cannot change what we don’t recognize. Most of the time, we aren’t aware of what’s wrong or what’s falling short. We don’t see what could be. By increasing our awareness, we begin the process of change.

9. Absorb by heart these words of wisdom from Albert Einstein, arguably the smartest change experts who ever lived: “All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

10. For change to happen, you need to change. We cannot change others; we can only change ourselves; however, when we change, it changes everything. And by doing this, we truly can be the change we desire to see in the globe.
