Successful people build each other up, they motivate, inspire and push each other. Unsuccessful people just hate, blame and complain.    Flowers only bloom when they are ready. People are the same way. You cannot rush or force them open, just because you think it's time. Be patient. - Timber Hawkeye    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. - Albert Einstein    Success is to be measured, not so much by the position that one has reached in life, as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed. - Bookert T. Washington    Be solution driven. Treat the disease, not the symptoms by targeting the source of the problem or issue.    In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins... not through strength, but through persistence. - Buddha    Are you interested in changing, or are you committed to change?

Change Obstacles


Whenever you initiate a change project, be sure to remember one thing… only in exceptional cases or situations, you can go it alone. Under normal circumstances, you need the help and assistance of other people to successfully see a change project through, regardless whether in a personal or professional context.

There are certain outcomes in any change project that you can control (e.g. your own actions and behaviours) and there are others that are beyond your control (e.g. the actions and behaviours of other individuals). Change obstacles are dealing mainly with those environmental influences that you cannot control.

Change obstacles are those people, situations, events and opportunities within your change network that is toxic to and obstruct your change efforts.
