One of Gandhi’s most famous quotes is “be the change you want to see in the world”.  Looking at the list above, you could say he was a success.  The lives led by those people are reflections of Gandhi’s.

Think about the list of people you are influencing.  Is your life showing them the change you want to see in the world?  Will their lives reflect the lessons they learned from watching you?
