“You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.

Your Strategy. Get real with yourself about your life and everybody in it. Be truthful about what isn’t working in your life. Stop making excuses and start making results.

Perhaps this law, more than any other, seems self-evident. And to some degree, it is. If you’re unwilling to acknowledge a thought, circumstance, problem, condition, behavior, or emotion – if you won’t take ownership of your role in a situation – then you cannot and will not change it. If you refuse to acknowledge your own self-destructive behaviors, not only will the continue, they will actually gain momentum, become more deeply entrenched in the habitual patterns of your life, and grow more and more resistant to change.”
