You can’t help the world if you don’t help yourself first.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” — Rumi

Such a deep quote. We want to change the world, forgetting that the first step to changing the world is to change ourselves first.

There’s a saying, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.’’ So fill your own cup first — focus on yourself, your change, and self-improvement.

The way we see the world is only a reflection of how we see ourselves. Maybe the world doesn’t need to be changed.

Maybe it’s only showing us what we need to change in ourselves and our attitude towards the world.
