I tell you this story for too often you think that you must be repparttar one who makerepparttar 123948 shift in your thinking to evoke positive results in your life. You holdrepparttar 123949 thought that you must reach deep within yourself and *gut it out* Some howrepparttar 123950 notion that "I and I alone" comes torepparttar 123951 surface.

Nothing could be further fromrepparttar 123952 truth. While it is true that you are responsible, it is NOT true that you must travel this path ALONE. This phenomenon of *doing it alone* seems particularly geared towards men, but women aren't immune either.

As I reflect on many ofrepparttar 123953 crises that have come into my life there were times that I have attempted (noterepparttar 123954 word attempted) to makerepparttar 123955 shift by myself. I was going to make it happen. And in some cases there seemed to be a positive change. Then I would discover that I had another experience ofrepparttar 123956 same nature. What was that all about? Hadn't I made a shift? I was so busy *looking* forrepparttar 123957 changes, *making* them happen, that I couldn't *see* that I was blockingrepparttar 123958 answer. Back to square one!

Then I was reminded of that which I already knew. It is when we reach out inrepparttar 123959 silence and ask for help thatrepparttar 123960 answer comes. It is when we allow that for which was asked to occur, when we get out ofrepparttar 123961 way, when we release that which binds us torepparttar 123962 past- shift happens.
