Alma - Chapter 23

18 And they began to be a very industrious people; yea, and they were friendly with the Nephites; therefore, they did open a correspondence with them, and the curse of God did no more follow them. 
When we are converted a change is wrought in us.  This change, I believe, is not wrought by ourselves but is rather wrought by the Holy Ghost.  We surrender our will and God takes care of the rest.  This is not to say that we can then sit on our laurels, or derrieres for that matter.  It is to say that the change of heart that results from conversion motivates, empowers, inspires and enables us to accomplish the work of the Lord in our lives and those of those around us.  Truly, the glory belongs to Him, for it is He who lifts the curse of sin, indolence, weakness and dismay.
