After reading your last posting, I feel like I'm one of those people who you were talking to you personally. I read a lot of different works, by some pretty popular people in the world of personal development.
Constantly I seem to fall back to this status quo level, of mediocrity. Through it all, I'm not quite sure of the explanation. Other than certain aspects of one's behavior / actions being hardwired, with little chance of changing them. Yet at the same time adopting such an attitude, to me is equivalent of giving up.
To use a magnet as an example...
If a person's personal aura is the equivalent of a magnet and that aura pulls him or her to a point that is not beneficial to his or her overall growth, or mental well-being, shouldn't it be possible to reverse or neutralize the polarity of the magnet? There have been proven cases, where someone has made the decision to take a specific action, or break a specific habit, and through discipline, the new changes took effect over the long-term and continue to benefit the person. Even if specific strategies don't work for certain individuals, others have been proven to work. It may take months or years, but lasting changes can happen.
Iin many of these cases has the person really pushed themselves to that next level, or are they simply saying they have when in actuality, they are simply overanalyzing and not taking the necessary action required for the results they intend to manifest?
