We go to a conference or retreat and are fully charged up.
Then why does its effect wither over a period of a week?
Because we think that since we have changed, the entire world must also have changed without attending the conference in the first place.
The next time you go through a transformation and want it to stick, learn it with purpose of not only implementing it alone, rather also implementing and being successful with people.
Especially the ones who press our buttons.
Then the change will not only stick, it will become ingrained in your subconscious.
