Self-Awareness Question: Change

Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those. This is the current list on self-awareness.

48. Do you believe people can really change?

Yes.  They don't, more often than they do, but all things are possible.

There is change that comes from without, as a great opportunity or calamity.  Change that comes from within requires a great deal of work, though, and most people don't want to do that or simply can't sustain it.

I have found that it helps to take an incremental approach rather than trying to make big changes.  Small ones are much more attainable and sustainable ... but over time, they do add up.

Here are some tips on changing yourself.

There are also methods for changing other people, but this is usually an exercise in futility.  Also it is ethically questionable.
