“Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would otherwise not have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Like Goethe said, a commitment to any given thing brings power. After more than 20 years of counseling, I can say the same thing about a commitment to change. I would not be in this business if I did not believe people can change, and I have witnessed hundreds of people succeed in doing it successfully and lastingly.
You, too, can start on a successful path of self-improvement, healing in your marriage, or greater connection and communication in your family. It is more possible than you may have imagined; more in your grasp than you may have believed.
