“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mohandas K. Gandhi, the Mahatma, or Great Soul, and father of the nation of India
Translation for Adults
You are constantly influencing the people in your life—at work, home, even here in class—but most of the time you do not realize it. If you want to influence actively the behavior of people in your life (for exam- ple, have a positive attitude or be willing to help one another), then you must be the first person to change, as you expect change in others. You must have the qualities that you want others to emulate.
Translation for Kids
How you act is also the way the people in your life will act. How would you expect others to act if you’re always mean and nasty to them? How would you expect others to act if you’re nice and willing to help others? It is important that you behave the way you want your friends to behave. Make sure you behave that way at home, at school, in martial arts class and all the time.
Discussion for Kids
- What are some qualities that you would like your friends to have?
- How will you act to help your friends have those qualities?
