William Colony Posted over 1 year ago Attitudes; share some worthy ideas of how we can change them? I must disagree. Simply a purpose or motive will not make you change. But your shear will, will. There are many hidden dispositions (unconsciously acted behaviors) working in the background. Even if you have a motive or an imagined or real purpose, without the willingness to break down your limits (unconsciously acted behaviors) you will not be able to change. For instance, many people have self-defeating behaviors. They can’t get ahead although they do have great ideas as motivations and purpose, but instead they keep falling back to their old “bad” habits. Without the willingness to understand yourself and the willingness to follow through, neither purpose nor motivation alone will get you to the desired outcome.
