Behind every adversity is an opportunity. If you lament over the adversity, you will miss the opportunity.
-- Ajaero Tony Martins

To be alive is to be always changing and evolving. The person who is now highly successful was once struggling. The person who is now kind was once cruel. The person who is now wise was once foolish.

It also works the other way sometimes. The person who was once wise may now be quite foolish. The person who was once wealthy may now be poor.

If you do not cause the changes to work for you, they will likely work against you. Standing still is simply not an option. Either you are growing, learning and improving or you are sinking deeper into despair.

Change is a daily reality for everyone alive. As with most other things, it can hurt or it can help. It offers infinite possibilities which begin with this very moment.

Change will happen. You can be sure of it. So use it to your advantage. Welcome the changes, look for the positive possibilities in them, and they will move you steadily forward.

— Ralph Marston
