People won’t do what you are not doing, and they won’t do what you are doing, if you tell them to do so.

You need to do what’s right, but not have any expectations. Let your actions speak for you.

Make yourself accountable for what you do or don’t do. You don’t have to do things to prove something to others.

Make a To-Do list with your goals, intentions and proposed actions, and try to stick to it.

Out of the seven billion people, it’s hard to find a single person who doesn’t have any problem. To cater to these problems we have to do what we can.
