Who Can Implement Changes And Succeed.

To implement changes, the first step's to examine your circumstances.

  • Be aware if to carry out your project you depend on the order of favors from others, or if you're independent and on your own can impose yourself.

KEY INSIGHT: The prince who doesn't depend on anyone, that one can indeed succeed in making changes if he knows what he's doing.
