Change — real change — comes from the inside out.

Stephen Covey

Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” was first published in 1989 and has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. This quote is found near the end of the book in a section where Covey ruminates on change. Self-growth, he suggests, comes from addressing “the fundamental, essential paradigms which give definition to our character and create the lens through which we see the world.” We cannot change our lives in any meaningful way without first looking deeply within ourselves.
