Tell of a time when you had your mind made up on something important and later changed your view?
What was it that convinced you to change your mind/heart/perspective?
I have always wanted to own a business but I never struck with long enough to see it through. I know this is God's plan for me; so this time I won't give up.
I grew from adolescence into manhood believing that being right was just about the most important thing in the world - I don't mean that I personally felt like I had to always come-out on top or win every debate, etc, but that being accurate about things was more important than just about anything.

I've learned from her that being being good is more important than being right, that kindness is more important than accuracy. This has resulted in one of the biggest changes in me, in who I am and how I conduct myself, of anything in my life.
