Thursday Thoughts

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.

–Leo Tolstoy

One of the books I’m reading right now is titled Make the Most of You, by Patrick Lindsay. Each page has a brief paragraph related to a specific topic with a quote below it, here’s the paragraph related to the quote above:

Seek Change from Within

It’s laudable to try to change the world. But sometimes we chose the wrong starting point. Start by looking within. See if the problem is rooted within you. If so, that’s where the change should begin. Then your commitment will be unshakable.

Thursday Thoughts

We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brothers, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But it’s always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.

Katharine Hepburn

Thursday Thoughts

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.

–Jim Rohn
