The Serenity Prayer: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”

Earlier I used to believe that I can change the world or any person in the world according to me so I possess wisdom.
Then after many years in my life struggling to somehow survive with family, and reading books of various mystics of India, I realised that wisdom is to know that I can change myself very easily and the changes will remain with me benefitting me every day. While changing the other or the society is impossible and even if I could change then there is no guarantee that it is going to benefit me in anyway. Some changes in lifestyle of others that I could brought through my guidance turn out to be harmful to me!
