A powerful ally

Things change, and in that change there is always opportunity. Change can often be frightening and difficult. It can leave you feeling vulnerable and wishing that things could go back to how they were before. But wishing won’t make anything happen. Instead, look at the change and decide how you can make the best of it.

Changes will come. They will bring with them new challenges, to be sure. They will also bring new positive possibilities. Always keep in mind that change equals opportunity. The bigger and messier the change is, the bigger and more valuable the opportunity is.

If you fail to see and make the most of that opportunity, the day will certainly come when you’ll regret it. The world is changing faster than ever, so what does that mean? It means more opportunity than ever before. Rather than worrying too much about the changes, seize the opportunities that are embedded in them. Find a way to make change your friend, and you’ll have a powerful ally indeed.
