Be the change you wish to see in others. Set the example. Be the leader. The things that need improvement in our lives are very obvious to us, but the ones we notice in others are even more obvious. When you notice the things in others that you would like to see changed, why not take that step to be that change and experience that change for yourself. When you take the steps to be the change you wish to see, you lead by example and then others will catch on and follow. While the change occurs in you, your energy field is changing as well and this energy emanates outward into the universe and reaches people. You can be hopeful that it reaches the people close to you, but know that you are only in control of your actions and not others. You can do your best to convince others to be a certain way, but the best way is for them to see with their own eyes, the changes you have made in your life. Be aware that people are mirroring to you the things that you see in yourself. Be grateful for your awareness of these things that you want changed around you because those are the list of things that you get to improve on of yourself. Step out of your mind and observe your life, step back into your life and be the change!
"She needs to be tidier" Be tidier, so she can see the difference between tidy and untidy.
"He needs to communicate better" Be patient and communicate with clarity, so he can see and experience the benefits of your clear communication.
"I want him to compliment me more often" Compliment him and others, so he can experience how good it feels to receive a positive comment as well as see that by complimenting others, it can bring a smile to their faces.
Once again...Step out of your mind and observe your life, step back into your life and be the change!
