(Unless they want to)
Isn’t that why we started with the coursework and why most of us that are remaining in the class Justin-to make a change? Yes, but humans are unique in their ability to willingly change. We can change our attitude, our appearance and our skill set. But only when we want to. The hard part, then, isn’t the changing it. It’s the wanting it.
So, we wanted it and signed up for this course. But what did we want? We wanted a different outcome. Outcome of what? The trajectory of our lives. So what did we do? Whatever Mark and Davene asked of us. Or did we do all that was asked of us? THe old blueprint came back, kicked us and we gave up. Of the people who started better than half give up. Hence the title of this post – People don’t change – Unless they want to. These folks didn’t really want to change, be different – become a miracle and hero in their own lives. But why, they were so close to change they were seeking but will never find outside of doing the work on themselves, that hard mental labor Hanael speaks of.
Which takes me back to the first few weeks when during the course we talked about faith. If you never had faith you would never persist. We must have faith, gratitude, show kindness, have a plan – DMP, keep our promises of what we write and most importantly keep first thing first – faith in ourselves to make a change.
