“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou
Newton’s first law of motion states that an object remains at rest unless acted upon by a force. This is also the case in our lives. Unless some force is exerted, whether it is external or internal, things will remain the same. If you are waiting for some external force to change your situation, it may never happen.
If you want to see positive change in your life, you are going to have to take the initiative and make things happen. Seize the moment and develop a plan of action. Decide what you want out of life and pursue that plan until something happens.
What if you do not accomplish those things you pursued? You will still be far better off in seeking after something than you would have been waiting for something to happen. By pursuing something you would have learned new information and obtained skills you could never have acquired by simply sitting and waiting for things to change.
