  • 10. Learning to Master Change (From Who Moved My Cheese?, Spencer Johnson, M.D.)
    • Change happens!
    • They keep moving the cheese.

    • When you move beyond your fear, you feel free.
  • 12. Learning to Master Change (From Who Moved My Cheese?, Spencer Johnson, M.D.)
    • Imagining yourself enjoying new cheese, even before you find it, leads you to it.
    • The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you find new cheese.
    • It is safer to search in the maze than it is to remain cheese-less.
    • Old beliefs do not lead you to new cheese.
  • 13. Learning to Master Change (From Who Moved My Cheese?, Spencer Johnson, M.D.)
    • When you see that you can find and enjoy new cheese, you change course.
