Before we expect to change the world , we should change ourselves first. if the change would start from within and if all people would do this then I think we would definitely see a better world . But it seems like most people would point out to other people about their mistakes , about the things those people around them need to change while they themselves don't want to make a change or bother to improve themselves at all So I was wondering if you noticed any improvement in yourself, in your character. to I think the best favor we can do ourselves is to bring change in ourselves for the better .

At this point, I think that I am at a point where I do not plan to change any time soon. However, you really can never tell. I think that we live in a never say never world to say the very least. Therefore, there are going to be times, where we are going to really be at a stagnate place in life. There are exciting points in life and there are points in life that are just going to be us living through life as it is. I do agree that to change the world, that we're going to have to change ourselves. Well to an extent, but a lot of people need to change themselves and have such a uniform change where it is actually going to make a different. That is going to be rather tricky. Right now, I think I am in a transition period, where a major change has happened a bit okay, and I am just gearing up for the next major change. Who knows what the next day could bring.

I glad you started this discussion. This year (2011) contrary to years prior I have looked in the mirror and seen a lot of things that I need to change. That is one of the hardest things for people to do is self evaluate themselves and start change at the source. I've told myself I'm going to be different towards how I treat others and just live life in the moment!

I don't know. These things come to me at the last second, denial- I know I've changed and irony- I want to go back So far my life has slowly mellowed with subtle changes I am quite worried "where are the massive changes? " "they are slowly falling in place" be patient , myself

I really appreciate you bringing up this discussion. It is so important to change you first and stop being so quick to judge others and look down on them. How can you take the Mote out of your brothers eye if you heavent take the beam from your own eye. Luke 6:42 I try to work on me daily, I want to love more, care more and do more for others. I know it starts with me I have to learn to love myself completely first and make sure I am open minded, and not being quick to judge. Realize that being different is what makes us beautiful. The improvements I see in myself is I use to get angry easy and now Im less quick to become angry Im slower to speak.

It has been a long time since I find any big change in myself, smaller ones perhaps. After reaching a certain age, it becomes more and more difficult to change. I have learned to accept myself as who I am and not to push myself too hard. I used to feel so bad about some of my traits and make life miserable. I am glad that I got over that.

hi hotsummer, YES! I've managed to changed my characteristics, personality and attitude.. I am so naive before... and now, I was surprised and everyone in our family was really surprise that I've gained so much confident in myself now.. I am not afraid to express my feelings.. Its either being happy, sad, alone, angry and any other more! My Dad feel so proud of me because of the confidence I gained!

It's easier to see the faults others than to recognize our own mistakes. Many people, even knowing that they're not perfect, have an additional problem or fault: to make it public. We live in a world full of competions where we try to be the best to get good rates at school, to get a good carreer or a good job. Maybe, we should learn first to be more humble or modest and to recognize our own faulsts. It's the first step of a large stair to get a better live / world.
