I Wanted To Change The World

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.

I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.

When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that IF long ago I had changed myself,  I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.

“Climb those mountains, keep chasing your dreams and then one sunny day catch hold of them, but don’t forget to stop, rest a while…and admire the view along the way, seeing how far you’ve already come from the higher slopes of life’s long (and at times very rocky, difficult) journey.”

A life may (should) be measured not by achievement, nor by the amount of money in your bank account… but in the number of lives touched.
