Progress Follows Intention

Progress follows intention, and a person needs much earnest effort if he wishes to progress well ... (Thomas "A Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, Book 1, Chapter 19, p. 48)

The most effective teacher in the world is behavior.  Action which demonstrates your resolve is worth a million well-intended words. (Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Pulling Your Own Strings, p. 129)

... many people have chosen to seek knowledge rather than to live well and they are often led astray and their lives come to very little, or nothing at all. (Thomas "A Kempis, The Imitation of Christ, Book 1, Chapter 3, p. 33)

Emotional problems affect the whole family - often the workplace as well - not just the person with the problem. (Ratey and Johnson, Shadow Syndromes, p. 20)

... we must realize that not everyone has the strength of purpose to take decisive action or to make radical changes in their way of life. (One Day At A Time In Al-Anon, 26 February)
