IT Begins With You!

A young boy once said to himself, “when i grow up, i’ll change my world”. At precisely 25 years, he was set to actualize his dream. He’s ‘modus operandi’ was to travel from continent to continent to conscientize people on the need for attitudinal change, but he soon realized and thought within himself, that it would be a wide elephant project and will require a huge financial investment. Therefore, dropped the idea of going from continent to continent and narrowed it down to his own continent alone. After travelling to three countries in his continent, he discovered that it is very awkward changing people of different race, cultures, beliefs, languages etc. He became dissappointed since he’s passion is gradually waning. Therefore, he said to himself, “since i couldn’t change the world, and couldn’t change my continent, i think i have to comeback to my own country”. At least this is my country. He set out again, went from one media house to another, writing on newspapers to talk to his fellow citizens about attitudinal change, but he wondered, the more he preaches about change, the worse the attitude of his fellow citizen is getting. He became even more frustrated, he therefore resolved to go back to his community to begin the campaign for change of attitude. But he was extremely dissappointed and frustrated, because his kinsmen were not even ready to listen to his sermon. He therefore went back to his home, his immediate family, to begin the campaign there. But to his chagrin, as his children were growing up, they would not adhere to their father’s instruction, and were all going the wrong way. At this point, all his hopes has been dashed, and he was extremely frustrated because he is fifty years already and could not change a single soul. He sat down and said to himself again, “since i couldn’t change the world nor my continent, nor my country, nor my communty, not even my family, then, i think i have to change myself”. It took him so many years to realize that, if you must change the world, that change has to begin with you!!
