Here are the rules for transforming another person and creating a miracle in their life:
- Hold the firm belief in your mind that they can change. Know it.
- Always demonstrate the words and behavior you want them to adopt.
- Watch constantly for tiny signs of a move in the right direction and recognize/reinforce that behavior.
- Take a firm stand in refusing to accept or overlook unethical behavior, yet do not be cruel.
- Use ordinary conversation to plant the seeds of ever-greater consciousness, then nurture the seeds.
- Laugh and hug and encourage as much as possible without being false or putting on a show. Be genuine.
- Be patient and know that time is one your side.
- Everyone has a built-in desire to grow, evolve in maturity, to do the best they can and to be the best they can. Trust this.
