Managing the Change Within Oneself

What about the change we manage within ourselves everyday, everytime? Can anyone please share any experience about how they manage the changes within themselves?

Is This Still a Superficial Iceberg?
David Bovis, Business Consultant, United Kingdom
I've been studying philosophy, psychology and theology for many years while a practising (lean+) change agent in many environments around europe and this model, as good as it is, still does what many other statements do in business, it says acceptance, attitudes and behaviours are the problem that must be managed, but doesn't say how to mange them, or what is to be known about them - the course I've designed and delivered (see here) provides this knowledge in a practical way - answering Sobia's question above - how do you manage the change in oneself?
Once you can answer those questions, you can see very clearly that there is a psychological-systemic relationship that unconsciously undermines change perpetuated by any standard system or approach to business that embodies assumption - for too many reasons than can readily be explained here.

Sobia's question is interesting. Change within must be taking place either in response to what experiences we have from outside and/or the self-created changes within. I rely on spirituality and communion with the higher being in bringing changes within.

It's an interesting question Sobia! Having tried to instigate change in the lives of literally hundreds of people of the years I have found it true that the only person I can change is myself.
I can create understanding, and teaching to assist people to discover a better choices for their lives but I can't change them. As a practicing believer in God, I find I am constantly in a state of change.
Someone once said people are different given different situations. To a degree that is true but oh how tiring that would be to me to be a different person in each given situation. Being true to who I am no matter what situation and continuing to work on my own personal issues so I can be a person of integrity, compassion, ethics, and yes love, is my goal in life.

I agree with the others that spirituality is a big part of this. It also requires taking a long hard look at your own strengths and weaknesses so that you can gain an understanding on what it is about yourself that needs to change. Being honest with yourself is essential. Identification of what needs to change is the first step. It's hard to change something if you don't identify it first. The second step is to make a plan, or steps, to facilitate the change. It takes constant self-monitoring when implementing the changes, whether it be in thought or actions. And with anything, it takes time and practice to develop new ways of thinking or behaving to make it a more consistent pattern within yourself. Hope this helps, sobia.
