Insight 2 Overview
Why, until now, has your initial progress tended to revert to the earlier level?
Many people avoid seeking a more fulfilling existence because, in the past, their efforts to make changes happen have not been successful or have not lasted. One of the key messages from this insight is that we have a built-in approach to making progress. It not only ensures that the process will be comfortable but that the changes/improvements will be sustainable. This insight will give you a comprehensive understanding of the theory of making sustainable change. Subsequent insights will help you understand the practical side of becoming the person you want to be.
