Before you can change the world you have to change yourself

What if we made a change in ourselves before hoping to change the world? What if we made sure our hearts, minds, and everything else was in the right place before doing good?

Are we asking for people to be more loving, kind, and generous even though we haven't been loving, kind, or generous ourselves?

This goes along with the quote by Ghandi that says "Be the change that you want to see in the world."

The next time you go off to change the world make sure to reflect on who you are inside and out.

A cold heart can't warm a nation.
