Don't Change the World

Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a prosperous country. One day, he went for a trip to some distant areas of his country. When he was back to his palace, he complained that his feet were very painful, because it was the first time that he went for such a long trip, and the road that he went through was very rough and stony. He then ordered his people to cover every road of the entire country with leather. Definitely, this would need thousands of cows' skin, and would cost a huge amount of money. Then one of his wise servant dared himself to tell the king, "Why do you have to spend that unnecessary amount of money ? Why don't you just cut a little piece of leather to cover your feet ?" The king was surprised, but he later agreed to his suggestion, to make a "shoe" for himself. There is a valuable lesson of life in this story : To make this world a happy place to live, It is better to change ourself - our heart; and not the world......

I don't believe in changing one's self, if i really think about it, no one should, but we can accomodate ourselves to the surrounding environment in order to survive and live better.
So, what i'd like to say that it's not changing, it's adapting. The king wouldn't change himself by wearing shoes, he would just be smart and give up his pride in this one matter.I don't think it implies change
