The Only Constant Is Change

Every where you go, you are bound to see changes. Every single second as your heart beats, as you breathe...there are changes happening around you. You might not be able to see it but it is happening. Back in our secondary school, in the Physics class...we have learnt so many formulae and equations with numerous constant in it. I can't recall many of them but the only constant that I have learnt throughout my life is the only constant in life is change. That's what all of us have to acknowledge!

No matter you like it or not, change is here to stay. You have to embrace and accept it. Max Depree once said, "When you can't change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails." How true is that. We will never become what we need to be by remaining stagnant. Some people just hate change, yet it's the only thing that brings improvement and growth. Change is the permanent thing that we cannot eradicate from our dictionary.

It is funny to thing that everyone wants to change the world they live, BUT no one thinks of changing himself first. The road to success is always under construction. Of course we have to live in the reality, but at the same time, non-acceptance of our present creates a future. We need to keep on reinventing ourselves if we wanna move forward.

They say it is better to be pruned to grow than to be cut up to burn! I can't agree more. In this competitive world, those who are versatile will strive for excellency and be successful in what they do. Wise people sometimes change their minds but fools...well...they never do. So we have to be receptive and be open to changes in our plans. It is a sign of strength to make changes when necessary.

He who ignores discipline comes to poverty and
shame, but whoever heeds correction is honored.
~Proverbs 13:18~

The longer a person is in error, the surer he is that he's right, and the less open he is to change. This is the most dangerous mistakes we all can commit-stubbornness. Where we cannot invent we can at least improve. Don't forget that sometimes a marvelous idea is just an old idea with its sleeves rolled up. An innovation. If you itch for ideas, keep on scratching!

So no matter what you are doing, don't be afraid to change. For it might spur you to scale higher heights. Dare to take up challenge and improvise. When you are stuck, try to find another way around...don't wait to be unstuck. Don't let your fate fall in the hands of chances. You can change no matter what you are doing. It doesn't matter if you wanna change the way you blog, the way you communicate with your boss or how you treat your loved ones. I try to change and improve myself too whenever I can. Change for the better and you'll be surprised with the results. :)

Let's change...
