How can you make others believe that they can make a difference? You can't.
Generally, I have a very high internal locus of control – I believe I can make pigeons in China eat less bread so that US food prices go down. But you can't make someone believe something. It took me almost two years to learn this.

After life-long depression, I took SRI's from 2001-2004, and realized that many problems other than just the depression/anxiety I'd had were brain-chemistry related. It was the only time I ever felt connected to humanity - part of it all, for one. And you're right - no one can make anyone think anything.

I quite agree with Yonatan. Since I have been spending the past half year with him and his wife Rivkah; I am an exchange student living with them; I have read a lot of blogs. If I was looking to give my money and business to the writer I would want to get to know them personally through their writing. Personal views of the writer like in your article allows the reader to do just that. Best wishes to you and your husband!

Wdywft(Anna):

I have read quite a few posts recently stating that Business bloggers should not use personal perspective in blog posts. I have vehemently disagreed with them. Your posting of today is an excellent reason why they are wrong!

You have beautifully used a personal example, a VERY personal example and in the process extracted some amazing and very touching lessons.

Let this posting serve as a GREAT example to the detractors: personal perspective and glimpses of our lives have every reason being in Business blog postings!

Yoni
