What must a Leopard do to change it's spots?
Is it truly possible for people to change their habits positively and completely, or will they always carry the spots of the leopard (old habits) that they were given or developed earlier in their life? How must a Leopard change it's spots and in what ways can it remain changed?

It takes a strong mind to make changes abruptly and self-discipline to maintain them.
