How can I help Change the World?

Change... How can I help create lasting change?
Below is one of the most powerful quotes about change, written nearly a millennium ago.
The words are inscribed on an Anglican Bishops Tomb (AD 1100) among the crypts of Westminster Abbey in London.
This quote answers the above question most beautifully.

These words still hold True


"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 discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And now, as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed myself first, then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country, and who knows, I may have even changed the world."
