  • Ummm, you can't MAKE somebody commit to anything unless they themselves want to, so why bother bending over backward? Offer the information, whether somebody takes it or leaves it is not up to you....

  • Why are you so concerned with other's self improvement?


    Answer by JeremysMom at 3:34 PM on Dec. 1, 2010

  • Because self improvement has to come from within.

  • Why would you be attempting to bend over backwards to get someone to commit to something they don't want? And on what planet would this work?

  • What do you even mean?

  • It's not your job to improve somebody else. If somebody wants self improvement they will do it for themselves and/or ask for help. You can't force somebody to improve themselves.

  • You can't make someone commit to self improvement if they don't want to improve themselves. Only they can make themselves commit.
