I love this message from the Daily Guru, "What happens to you is not as important as your reaction to what is happening.".

It's so true that in order for us to grow as people we need to embrace change and learn from it. Nothing can stay the same and it's the people that are willing to accept the change and run with that are going to succeed. For those that fight it and choose not to accept the world as it changes around them are left behind and when they finally do give it, most times they are at the end of the race. Now it's never too late to take that first step but wouldn't it be that much better to be ahead in the game.

I use to always think that things just seem to work out for themselves and strongly believed in that because my life seems to always work out. But a friend of mind gave me a different point of view on that topic. He made me see it that because I was willing and open to the changes in my life that good things followed. Everybody is faced with change everyday, it's all in how you take the changes that determine if you are going to have a positive out come or not.

How do you feel about change in your life? Are you open to letting life lead you? or do you feel you have to fight it and keep things as they are?


Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change.
It involves risk as you step from the known to the unknown.
All your growth will depend on your activity.
Your strength and growth will come only through continuous
effort and struggle.
There will be no development without effort.

Trouble is the common denominator of living.
It is the great equalizer of life.
Your trials, your sorrows and your griefs will develop you.
When good or bad fortune comes your way,
you must give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

What happens to you is not as important
as your reaction to what is happening.
