Everyone wants to change the world. A few people are able to move the needle but most fail. What we are about to discuss is one way that you can be one of the few.
You wake up every morning and see the latest news on what’s going wrong in the world. People are hopeless and desperate for change.
As I’ve said before, you are your own savior or your own devil. That applies to your personal world and the world at large.
The world at large is full of people that protest in the streets and blast out hateful memes on social media. None of those things will change anything.
The truth is that all change starts with YOU.
You must be the example that you want to set for the world.
This is something that people don’t want to accept. They’d rather sit around complaining on the internet.
But you have the opportunity to bring about real change.
You will change this behavior by looking within yourself for the change that you want to see in the world.
From there you will live your life to the fullest way possible.
This will set an example for your family, friends, and random people that interact with you.
You don’t know how much power you have over people by your actions. Every word you speak. How you dress. Everything you do has an influence on the people around you.
My favorite point from Of Tyrants and Tellers is where Sonny talks about pride. Pride is the building block to your life.
Taking pride in how you dress, speak, and handle yourself will do more than protesting with 10,000 people.
But you may be thinking, “How can me taking pride in myself change the world?”. By you taking pride in yourself your energy will rub off on others.
Before long you will be the example that others will follow. This is when you begin building culture. Once the culture starts building the power of your example amplifies.
What is culture?
As Sonny put it in Of Tyrants and Tellers….
Culture is everything and everything is culture. It all matters.
Everything. Everything and anything. Your culture is the reason why
you are who you are right now. Your culture is the reason why you are
where you are right now.
Now that we have a clear definition of culture, let’s dive deeper. What is your culture?
Your culture is your life. It is made up of every decision that you make. The music you listen to, how you dress, and what blogs you read or don’t read.
Most people are unaware of why they do what they do. They go through their day thinking that reality is just the way it is.
That’s why even though they have sites like Calm and Collected, they still aren’t able to get their lives together.
The simple answer is: If you feel stuck, it is your culture.
Of Tyrants and Tellers takes you through the process of creating your own culture. Sonny does a great job of helping you understand why your culture is the way it is. He references the CIA and many other documents.
This book contains information that the powers that be wouldn’t want the masses having. You are already beginning to see the truth.
The truth is that you’ve been lied to since you were born. Things don’t have to stay the way they are for you.
