When I teach about coaching and leadership in my courses, I sometimes ask the qestion, "How many of you like these points, but feel that the people who need it aren't here?" They usually laugh, but most hands go up.
Perhaps we, too, are thinking that the people who really need to learn the spiritual principles of human and devotee effectiveness are not learning them. That very thought reveals that we might be dependent on their weaknesses. That we think that they need to change before we can change.
When we look at the spiritual principles through the weaknesses of others, we disempower ourselves and empower their weaknesses to continue to suck initiative, energy and enthusiasm from our lives.
When we think that powerful principles which bring about personal change are meant for someone else, it is an obstacle to our success and effectiveness.
These principles are meant for us.
