“Temperament is not Destiny”
Emotional Intelligence-Daniel Goleman
I knew it intuitively but knowing it scientifically has given me a whole lot of confidence in knowing and believing that a person’s nature can be changed.
Long back when I absolutely knew nothing I believed that a person’s nature is permanent. In my hometown many of my elders used to say, “A person’s nature and signature don’t change”, well they still believe this to be true and they can not be more wrong about it.
The brain is plastic meaning it can always learn, it is only up to us to make a conscious effort to learn and by learning anything can be changed. Be it learning a new language, learning how to play guitar, or changing his innate nature.
