#shorts: Yes, YOU are the ONE

Updated: Jul 15, 2021

I am currently reading this book by Sean Covey and I came across these truly impactful lines. Hope this inspires you.

When I was young and free and my

imagination had no limits, I dreamed of

changing the world;


As I grew older and wiser I realized the

world would not change.


And I decided to shorten my sights

somewhat and change only my country.

But it too seemed immovable.


As I entered my twilight years, in one last

desperate attempt, I sought to change

only my family, those closest to me, but

alas, they would have none of it.



And now here I lie on my deathbed and

realize (perhaps for the first time) that if

only I'd changed myself first, then by

example I may have influenced my

family and with their encouragement

and support I may have bettered my

country, and who knows I may have

changed the world.
