Change

Things change. Every moment is different from the last one. Do things change for the better or for the worse? That depends. That depends entirely on you. Change is neutral. It is neither good nor bad. It is simply necessary. If things did not change, nothing would ever happen.

Change is the way you get from one point to another. It is fundamental to life itself. Think of all the processes of change going on right now in your body, which serve to keep you alive from moment to moment.

When things are going along great, something will change. When you’re full of despair, something will change. It is the nature of your existence. Change is the way things happen. Change does not have to stop you or limit you. In fact, change will empower you and pull you forward if you let it. You cannot stop change. And you must not allow it to stop you.

The changes keep coming. Through them, you can learn, grow and prosper. Look for the positive possibilities in every change. They’re there, and they’ll take you where you want to go.

— Ralph Marston
