In order for us to be able to create true change-change that lasts-we need to develop a specific system for utilizing any techniques you and I learn to create change, and there are many. Every day I'm picking up new skills and new technologies from a variety of sciences....
The first belief we must have if we're going to create change quickly is that we can change now.
The second belief that you and I must have if we're going to create long-term change is that we're responsible for our own change. In fact, there are three specific beliefs about responsibility that a person must have if they're going to create long-term change:
First, we must believe, "Something MUST change."
Second, we must not only believe that things must change, but we must believe, "I must change it."
Third, we have to believe, "I CAN change it."
..In the end, you have to be the source of your change.
