The Only People Who Can Change the World

The only people who can change the world are the people who want to. ~ Hugh MacLeod

Seems ridiculously simple and after a moment amazingly logical. It doesn’t mean that those who simply want to change the world will take action and have persistence to keep moving change forward. But it does mean that if you don’t want to change the world, you won’t. If you are satisfied with how the world; how we take care of each other and how we care for the planet then you won’t be a change agent.

If you aren’t happy with how we distribute resources, care for the most vulnerable, seem to be at war with each other all the time, seem to be destroying our habitat and that of others, or feel pain for the less fortunate – you now know the first step.

I think the second step is equally simple and difficult. Believe that you can.
