On the Subject of Positive Change

I couldn't resist after our phone conversation today.
I came across this and it was everything you were talking about.
I think Nike's version was shorter.
"Just do it."

Learning is the first step in making positive changes within yourself. 
Other factors are conviction, determination, action and effort. 
Learning and education help develop conviction about the need to change and increase your commitment. Conviction then develops into determination. 
Next, strong determination leads to action: a sustaine...d effort to implement the changes. 
This final factor of effort is critical.

Hi Kathleen,
"Just do it" says it all. But the Dalai Lama's words show step by step how to get there. Without learning, conviction determination, action and effort,no change would would come. Thank you for these inspiring words.

Agreed Debra!

Well, we have to thank the Dali Lama. Between he and Mother Theresa I think the world could be healed.

On a lighter note, they'd have made a great couple. ha.

I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. I meant that.

Peace and Blessings.

Even more glad you took the time to comment after visiting your blog ...

I have a feeling it will quickly become my new favorite read. Profound and thought provoking.
