Change Your Future, Now!
This book in our change management series is addressed to thoughtful students, parents, workers, educators, artists, athletes, physicians, managers, leaders, retirees, writers, or coaches, whether they work alone or belong to a team or organization struggling with and committed to responsible change for a better future. Our hope, or goal, is to spark new intellectual capital by sharing ideas. In short we aim to publish a book that disturbs the present in order to bring forth a better future.
Change is important. It matters a great deal to organizations and institutions, to the people who work in them, and to the people who are served by it. For our society to function effectively, we need authentic people who can encourage others to perform at their best and step up and lead themselves.
I wrote Change Your Future, Now! - Because I have a passion to see more people in all walks of life embrace change. I wanted to help people like you discover their potential, so they could help themselves to evolve in life and help the people around them.
Change Your Future, Now! enable you to take the ideas from the book and apply them to your personal development. This will enable you to become a more effective and authentic person, one who can evolve and change from within in order to realize a better future.
Becoming an authentic person takes hard work! To become great at any endeavor, whether in your career, your family, or your community, you must use unique strengths you were born with and develop them to the fullest, while acknowledging and learning from your shortcomings. In the majority of cases, people have to work hard to shape their futures. They endure disappointing defeats and rejections and search for many years to find the right place to flourish. They are each required to make the journey to their own soul, in order to find out who they are, where their real passions lie, and how they can become more effective, so they can shape their futures.
Personally, I did not have a distinctive reference text like this book to help me when I was young, so I made up my development plan as I went along, with the help of my father, employers, close friends, my wife, my son, and some important mentors along the way.
After searching for role models for many years, I learned that I could never become a great person by emulating someone else or by minimizing my shortcomings. If you are aiming to be like somebody else, you will be merely a copycat because you will think that is what people want you to do. You will never be a real person with that kind of thinking. However, you might be a real person, unpredictable, by following your passion.
Many self-help books offer a quick fix, or provide the reader with seven or more easy steps to follow. Unfortunately, in reality a person's development does not usually work that way, and rarely becomes a great person by reading a book.
To realize your potential in life, you need a detailed development program that will enable you to shape your future. That is the purpose of Change Your Future, Now! - to help you to develop a clear and detailed program for your personal growth and happiness in life. I encourage you to have as many experiences early in life as you can. Do not sit back and wait for these experiences to come to you. Seek them out! Then after each experience, you should process it by going back to your development plan to see what changes you need to make and/or to determine the future experiences you should have.
Remember the following fundamentals; they will help you to change your future: You will need to discover your authentic self as soon as possible; you will need to remember that you do not have to be born with certain characteristics to be able to shape your future; you will not need to wait for a tap on your shoulder to start; you will not need to wait to be at the top of an organization to start; and the most important, you will need to remember that you are never too young or too old to change your future.
I encourage you to be completely open and transparent as you look inside yourself and answer the very challenging and difficult questions posed about what you think you should be in the future. You need to explore your lifes story at a deep level in order to understand who you are as a human being, where you fit in in this world, how you can impact the world in a positive way, and how you can leave a lasting legacy.
I hope that you and many others can transform business organizations and institutions, the nonprofit world, governments, education, and religion, as you bring authenticity to the world and encourage others to do the same. Your enthusiasm to become authentic will indeed make this world a better and richer place for all of us to live in. At this point, it is important to keep in mind that changing your life for a better future is your sole decision!
Germain Decelles, o.s.j., MBA

This book is the result of a four-year project called Project Tomorrow. During the four-year period, we followed more than 500 trainees, aged from 16 to 72. The trainees were from colleges and reinsertion programs in administration and computer science.
Some of the trainees implicated where dropouts from school districts, and others were new immigrants or unemployed workers from different economic and social backgrounds.
To graduate, the trainee had to perform during a period of three months in a business environment. At the end of that time, an appreciation evaluation was performed to determine both the amount of change the trainee experienced during the period and the impact of that change on the trainee.
Many of the questions, reflections, and answers presented in this book our issued from our findings during this period. We would like to thank all the trainees for their efforts and determination during the process.
