Good Evening, Everybody.
There’s a quote that says: “you lead and others will follow”
As I took this meaning and started thinking, if everybody has his own beliefs, then he started working to let the whole world believe in them, they will!
I read a book for Paulo Ceolho called the Alchemist, the man in the story believed in his treasure and went to have it, so he did!
The idea is in: when you believe in something, you’ll work to achieve it and connect it to the whole world and everybody will know it and believe in it.
so; start sharing your beliefs and be an agent of positive change.
here’s a discussion and need to know your opinions :)
@sikarno, yikes, i’ve read the book too and it’s actually one of my favorites :)) what you said is what i keep thinking too..i mean, for something to happen it has to start somewhere or from someone..and ofc you have to be the mirror of what you believe in no matter how hard that may be..we have to constantly remind ourselves that we can influence others so much so we better be a good one..and if you have some life philosophy (which i’m sure we each have), we’ve got to live it not just for ourselves but for others as well as a role model..i once read a quote that goes this way: “To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” -Mahatma Gandhi
thank you for that wonderful post, i want to be an agent for positive change too! that’s why i try to live my life according to my beliefs..it gets hard sometimes but who knows, it could make a difference and that possibility is more than enough to keep me going.. :))
I agree, but we should also be mindful of not forcing our beliefs upon others. I take the approach of living my life based on my beliefs, this creates and holds a space for others to do the same.
If asked I’ll share my beliefs, but only if asked. I try not to convince others to believe what I believe as this is a fools game, unless the individual is truly interested.
It seems most people seek validation of their own beliefs through others.
