Self-study report

Summary:
In the motivational book “Who Moved My Cheese” written by Dr Spencer Johnson, readers were exposed to the fact that there are four main characters that lives in a maze. They are the mice Scurry and Sniff, and two 'littlepeople', Hem and Haw. All is going well as they have found full resources of their favorite food which is cheese and they take the resources center as their own home. However, they do not realize that the cheese getting smaller. As the cheese gone, Scurry and Sniff quickly accept the cheese loss and move on and find new cheese. But Hew and Haw cannot accept the fact and blaming it to the some kind of thief and fraud. After some kind of difficulty, Ham proposed to find new cheese but Hew stick by not to join as he fears unknown situation. Finally Ham left Hew to find new cheese and eventually able to find new place full of cheese. He just prays that Hew change his minds and follow him. Reaction:

I do get motivated by reading this book as the cheese defined as metaphor of what I want in my life. The main phrase which sticks to my head was “If You Do Not Change, You Can Become Extinct”. When I read it, I remember on how I refused to come to Korea in order to continue my study here. I’m afraid of leaving my family, friends and atmosphere in my country. I’m just paralyses with my fears that I am not capable to live in new surrounding without knowing anyone. But, the fact that I should move on to grab any opportunity even it is hard makes me feel adapt to this new surroundings and learn to challenge myself to strive for my excellence. Because I do know, every hard job you done with passion, you will benefited from all that experience.
