Change - real change - comes from the inside out. It doesn't come from hacking at the leaves of attitude and behavior and quick-fix, personality-ethic techniques. it comes from striking at the root - the fabric of our thought; the fundamental, essential paradigms, which gives definition to our character and creates the lens through which we see the world.
- Stephen R. Covey on Change
Creating real unconditional long term change in ourselves is hard work but it will last.
