“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If you’ve found your way to positive thinking, success and happiness, you’ll want to spread it, and it’s as easy as just being yourself. Your peace of mind and positive attitude will contaminate those around you and people will leave your presence feeling good about themselves and empowered to succeed in their endeavours and fulfil their dreams.
The smallest of things affect those around us, whether we realise it or not – something as minor as picking up something someone has dropped can tip the scales when it comes to that person having a good or bad day, and a smile can lift someone’s spirits just as easily as a scowl can dampen them. Every one of us is subconsciously aware of this, which is why happy, positive people are magnets to others, while negative people repel almost everyone who isn’t also a negative thinker.
Over and above this, when people see you succeeding and having all your desires actualise, they’ll be further inspired to follow in your footsteps and train their minds to think only positive thoughts.
“The world is what we think it is. If we can change our thoughts, we can change the world.” ~ H.M. Tomlinson
Changing the world is as easy as changing yourself so that you can change your little corner of Earth, for each person you contaminate with positive thoughts will contaminate others, who will contaminate yet more. It’s a potent ripple effect that, once its momentum has gathered, is truly unstoppable. Together, by fulfilling our personal needs and desires, we could actually balance the scales, create happiness in every person and perhaps, in so doing, even attain world peace one day – just a thought; use it, don’t use it…
