Why do so many of us end up frustrated when we try to improve our personal reality?
Why do diets end up in gained weight?
Why do some people fail again and again at business?
Why do others get into one bad relationship after another – in spite of their deep desire for a “good” relationship?
Obviously no one *wishes* to fail in their personal or business life. Yet this is an all-too-common problem
Let’s face it! We want and deserve to make our lives a better place to be!
We want and deserve success! We want a sense of security! We want a good relationship with ourselves and others.
Good grief — most of us just WANT to be happy!
** The *Basic Rule* of Lasting Personal Change Trying to change the external conditions of your life is obviously a challenge.
The basic rule of personal change is this: Your effort will *always* fail, or only be temporary, unless accompanied by a change of your internal thoughts and beliefs.
It all starts in your mind! Period!
For example: Consider trying to lose weight by going on a “diet,” without first dealing with “why” you are overweight.
We all know the final outcome of such a battle – failure!
There are NO exceptions to this rule.
To change your external conditions, you must first change your internal reality.
Ask yourself: What’s happening in your mind to make your business efforts end in failure? Or your relationships collapse? Or your waistline to continuously expand?
Unless you uncover and deal with the source, all your efforts will only be a band-aid over a festering wound.
This rule applies to anything you want to change in your life: From a fear of flying, to chronic underachievement and failure, lack of motivation, low energy, monetary lack, etc.

Picture a foot path through a meadow: Frequent use creates a well-defined pathway. But if the path isn’t used, it eventually disappears.
