Change Agents

There are four agents of change, four catalysts that make change happen: Openness,
Knowledge, Creativity, and Courage.  Anyone of these alone can make change possible.  All
four working together can guarantee it.

​Without Openness, nothing changes. An open mind makes all things possible.  Because
of Openness, the world is no longer flat.  Knowledge is also key to the change process.  New
information, or a new way of looking at old information, can be the spark that creates change.
That makes Knowledge a very powerful tool.  Creativity is another essential compound for
change.  Thinking outside the box has led to many new innovations.  From the wheel to the
computer, Creativity has led the way.  Lastly, Courage is a must.  There is no change without
it.  Change can be scary, but so can the status quo.  Therefore, be brave.

Consider this prayer: “God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,
the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
