A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.

The changes come

Opportunities arise, equipment wears out, people change jobs, new products are introduced. You can be certain that in ways large and small, on a personal level and on a global scale, things change.

Tomorrow, next month, next year, will all be different than today. And being dismayed, resentful, or angry about the changes won’t make them go away.

A much more effective strategy is to pay attention, to accept that the world will change, to adjust and adapt and make positive use of changing conditions. You cannot stop life from changing, yet you can work within those changes to make them for the better.

Not every change is positive, yet you can always find a positive response to whatever the change may be. Most of the world’s changes are beyond your direct control, yet you do have much control over the way your own life changes.

Change is going to happen. So make the commitment in every moment to find new ways that you can do the very best with all those changes.

You can’t stop change but you can work to make it good, and thrive on it, and help others to do the same. Every day the changes come, and every day is your chance to give life even more meaning and value.

— Ralph Marston
