Learning about the personal growth work you need to do on yourself is a lot different than doing that work. But that’s the only way to find out if what you’ve learned actually works.
The main reason is that you need feedback from your environment. You test, observe, test again, take action. You learn through your results.
In order to change your results, your desire has to overcome the results you’re getting now. If that happens, your life will change a lot easier.
Also, I read a letter from a mom who feels paralyzed by dysfunctional family members and is scared her child is going to pick up or become dysfunctional because of their bad behavior. Family can sometimes be toxic, especially around children.
Children know right from wrong, even when they’re exposed to toxic stuff, but as long as they have a healthy role model, sometimes the toxicity from others doesn’t rub off on them. Be the best role model you can be and your child will do much better because of it.
Finally, I talk about the subtle change in your thought can lead to a good outcome or a bad one.
