On the Fact That People ChangeTuesday, June 16, 2015
If people can't change, then the entire education system is a waste as is the entire training industry. The very definition of learning something new means you are changing a way of thinking, which changes your outlook in some way, which can change your values system and ultimately your worldview.
There's a quote I love that Anne Lamott credits to her mentor in one of her books, "Forgiveness means giving up all hope of having had a different past."
If people are learning, then people are changing. If you want people to believe in your potential, not your past, you have to be willing to do the same for them.
