Shame and fear are two emotions that I have used in the past without success. They only drive us farther from our goals and from God. From our earliest recorded history in the Bible, the first human emotion Adam & Eve felt was shame, and it caused them to distance themselves (hide) from God. Take an inventory of your methods used to try to motivate change in yourself and others to see if shame and fear are part of your inventory. I am sorry to say that I used shame and fear unsuccessfully on my 2.0, and, although it made me felt justified, those emotions did not bring about real change.

But avoiding shame and fear does not mean that anything goes. There is a lot of middle space between shame and justification. When God found Adam & Eve in a state of shame, he helped them through it by giving them commitments. It is through commitment that we can really bring about change in ourselves and others. Be committed to improving even if you mess up or things don’t work out. Don’t let shame drag you or others down into the pit of stagnation on self-improvement and in inspiring others to be better.
