There is only one reason why I changed my bad attitude when I was 20, and it wasn't because someone told me to.
When I was about 19 years old, I started to have a bunch of "concerned adults" come up to me on a regular basis and tell me that I needed to change this behavior and that behavior so that I'd be able to go on a mission. You know what? They were exactly right. But at the time I wasn't having any of it.
Nothing that anyone could say to me had enough power to change my mind. I was living my life the way I thought it should be lived. I was a "good person," I'd tell myself. Whatever that means. You could tell me that I needed to serve a mission until you were blue in the face and I'd just shake my head and grab my surfboard.
Telling people to change doesn't work. You've got to show them why it would be beneficial for them to change and then that change needs to come from within.
As I grew up in the church, I felt like there were a lot of instructors but not a lot of teachers. (There's a huge difference) Like many other youth, I was stubborn and prideful and all of the things many of the adults told me went through one ear and out the other. They were a bunch of old people, right? What could they possibly know about my situation?
Recently we were sitting in a leadership meeting prior to a stake conference and our stake president quoted President Boyd K. Packer when he said, "True doctrine, understood, changes attitudes and behavior. The study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior." Then he asked us a question: "Do any of you have any experiences that show how President Packer's statement is true?"

Latter-day Saints use the King James Bible along with other scripture to learn the will and word of God. But while you may know your Bible verses, you probably didn’t know these things about the King James Version of the Bible.
In 1979, the LDS Church published its first edition of the Bible in English, and in 1992, it was officially adopted by the Church as the Bible of preference.
But if you’ve ever looked at the title page of your LDS quad and wondered about King James and his Bible, you’re not alone.
Here are seven things all Latter-day Saints should know about the King James Bible (KJB).
1. The 1611 King James Version of the Bible is actually a composite of several earlier translations, not a new translation of older Greek and Hebrew manuscripts.
While the 47 translators who created the KJB were instructed by King James to consult the older (and closer to the original) Greek and Hebrew texts, they mostly referred to existing versions of the Bible.
