Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Let everyone sweep in front of his own door and the whole world will be clean.”

~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Everyone is so concerned about how everyone else is living their lives that they forget how terrible theirs is. If everyone paid more attention to their own problems and affairs they would begin to see a better world that was brighter, happier, cleaner and less problematic. Focus on what is going on right before you and how you can make it a better environment for all who are around it and you’ll be more concerned about keeping it that way instead of complaining about all the dirt in other people’s lives. Before you tell other’s to clean up their lives, take the mud out of your eyes and sweep the dirt from your path. Make a conscience effort starting today to clean up your own life! Then, the world will be a cleaner place. Did I get that spot?
