Yes, it is possible to manifest a change in another's behavior because the part of the other person that is projecting into your reality is a vibrational match to your expectation of them. And, if your expectation of them changes, because you have deliberately started thinking differently about them (using, for example, Focus Blocks), their behavior will have to change.
This is not because you are actually changing the other person, you are just changing what you are attracting from them.
This is why the same person acts differently with different people. Those other people are interacting with different aspects of that person's personality.
Two points, however, to bear in mind.
The natural corollary to what has been written above then is...meet your potential relationship partners when you are feeling good predominantly within yourself, and then you won't have to change them afterwards. :)
And the corollary to the corollary is...when you become the right person, you will naturally attract the right person.
I have had success with a technique I learned from Burt Goldman (The American Monk). You go to a meditative level and imagine you are talking to the person, and convincing them of your side of things...e.g. "It would be better for all involved if you would take the time to be a better listener. It would help me to feel that you care, and something I say might be helpful if you would listen. We both want the same thing." and etc. Imagine this vividly a few times and end your imagined conversation with good feelings, such as a handshake, hug, smile or whatever is appropriate. Imagine that you have agreed on some level and that it's the highest good for all concerned.
I have used this with a "problem co-worker", with a personality conflict I once had with a neighbor, for resolution with friends, family and just about everything. It does work for me, and perhaps is worth trying for you. I have seen some difficult situations turn around for me.
I don't believe it is being manipulative, because the other person has their free will and will not cooperate if isn't for the best and isn't wanted.

I have a similar question about my sister she often makes the wrong decision and doesnt think thoroughly about her actions or the words she speaks. I thought i could not change who she is but give her another point of view of things just attempting to work with her, but in result i end up aggravated. i dont believe you change someone they have to want it.

To a certain degree, yes.
There is manipulation, conscious hypnotizing, bribing, the "stick", the "carrot", sending good vibrations, changing your own reaction, showing by example, etc.
however, since you can never make anyone do something they don't want to do, there is a line we can't cross. It is different for everyone, different people have different boundaries, confidence, poise, etc.

I would have thought that by and large God would have put a safe guard into his laws to stop people controling others thru HIS system. But there are plenty of humans thru history who have had by way of force of will and persuasivness/charisma exerted a a huge influence on others and perhaps changed their behaviour. Good question really. Graham
