The intent to change requires effort. Restraint, self-control, and patience are the means by which what is most desired is attained. Responsibility for the self must be grasped for no one else can restrain, control, or apply the needed patience to another. Change has to also be deeply desired and all efforts consciously applied if anything is to happen, but take that first step and the journey begins!
