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 Steps


The function (the what, individualized by project demarcation) and principles (the why, individualized by SWOT-analysis) of each change step is indicated and described. When you are aware of the WHY and you are also familiar with WHAT needs to be done, most individuals – normally – just simply assume that implementing a change project would be an easy and simple process.

However, when you are actually – actively – dealing with a change process, you suddenly realize that its a lot tougher and much more “complicated” than anticipated at first, especially once you start dealing with the HOW of change management.

Therefore, each change step is discussed in detail to enhance your understanding regarding the purpose of each change step, to give illustrative examples on HOW to implement each step and to provide you with an opportunity to adapt or accommodate the principles in your own self-initiated change (i.e. self-empowerment and psyche management) project.
