"Let him who would move the world first move himself."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
Most people who want to change the world seem to want the world to be changed in a way that is convenient to them. Socrates implores us to apply a dramatic attitude change to ourselves first in order to become a better person. Only after changing ourselves for the better, can we begin to look at ways we can help to change the world. Achieving on a small scale is the same as achieving on a grand scale – you simply magnify and expand. When one is self-employed, you have to check your attitude with regard to the way you approach your work, your business, your company, your products and services, your prospects, your customers and everything you do.
