英语励志名言——如果你想改变世界

If You Want to Change the World

The Mahatma Gandhi believed that we must be the change we want to see in the world. This was well demonstrated when he helped India gain its independence. Gandhi was a revolutionary man, but he accomplished India's emergence as a nation without starting a revolution. In fact, he advocated no violence. One of the most powerful countries in the world yielded to the commitment of one man and the dream of millions.

What change can we effect? What's the difference we want to make in the world?

Gandhi said, "In a gentle way you can shake the world." Here are some things to think about how to do just that.

1. Know that all significant change throughout history has occurred not because of nations, armies, governments—and certainly not committees. They happened as a result of the courage and commitment of individuals. People likeJoan of Arc, Albert Einstein,Clara Burton, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison andRosa Parks. They might not have done it alone, but they were, without question, the change makers.

2. Believe that you have a unique purpose and potential in the world. It's not so much something to create as to be discovered. And it's up to you to discover it. Believe that you can and will make a difference.

3. Recognize that everything you do, every step you take, every sentence you write, and every word you speak—or DON'T speak—counts. Nothing is trivial. The world may be big, but there are no small things. Everything matters.

4. To be the change you want to see in the world, you don't have to be loud. You don't have to beeloquent. You don't have to be elected. You don't even have to be particularly smart or well educated. You do, however, have to be committed.

5. Take personal responsibility. Never think that "it's not my job". It's acop-out to say, "What can I do? I'm only one person." You don't need everyone's cooperation or anyone's permission to make changes. Remember this little gem: "If it's to be, it's up to me."

6. Don't get caught up in the how of things. If you're clear on what you want to change and why you want to change it, the how will come. Many significant things have been left undone because someone let the problem-solvinginterfere with the decision-making.

7. Don't wait for things to be right in order to begin. Change is messy. Things will never be just right. Follow Teddy Roosevelt's timeless advice: "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."

8. Thegenesis for change is awareness. We cannot change what we don'tacknowledge. Most of the time, we aren't aware of what's wrong or what's not working. We don't see what could be done. By becoming more aware, we begin the process of change.

9. Take to heart these words from Albert Einstein—arguably one of the smartest change master who ever lived: "All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge."

10. In order for things to change, YOU have to change. We can't change others; we can only change ourselves. However, when WE change, it changes everything. And in doing so, we truly can be the change we want to see in the world.

The following words are inscribed on the tomb of anAnglican bishop inWestminster Abbey(1100 A.D.):

"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 some what and decided to change only my country.

But it, too, seemed immovable.

As I grew into mytwilight 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 mydeathbed. 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."

Since this list was inspired by Gandhi's belief, it seems appropriate to end with another of his quotes:

"Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us doesrender some service or other. If wecultivate the habit of doing this servicedeliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger and we will make not only our own happiness, but that of the worldat large."


如果你想改变世界

圣雄甘地认为,要改变世界,我们首先就要按照我们想要的样子来改变自己。甘地在帮助印度获得独立时,就很好地证明了这一点。甘地曾是一位革命家,但他没有发动革命斗争就实现了印度的独立建国。事实上,他倡导的是非暴力途径。而当时世界上最强大的国家之一就为这一个人的献身和数百万人的梦想所屈服了(编注:这里指1947年,英国政府被迫放弃对印度的殖民统治)。

我们能带来什么样的改变?我们又想为这个世界改变些什么呢?

甘地曾经说过:“只需要用一种温柔的方式,你就能撼动整个世界。”怎样做到这一点,你必须想清楚一些事情。
