“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future." Those are John F. Kennedy's words of wisdom on change. According to Dr. Moses,it is a necessity for anyone that desires to grow and achieve something worthwhile in life. That is why it is so important to critically examine ourselves, our habits and our perceptions so that we do not get stuck in time and live out the same things over and over again year after year. Where is the meaning and joy in life if every day is just like the one before it?

So you must take full responsibility for your own life. Don't wait for anybody else to challenge you. Challenge yourself.  "Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." That was Tolstoy's very true observation. Any change you want to see in your world must start with change in you.  Michael Jackson said to start with “the man in the mirror" and “make that change." That means you. Whatever circumstance you find yourself in today that you are not happy or satisfied with, you can change. Just make the choice. Jim Rohn, one of my favourite motivational speakers, put it so eloquently: “Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish; we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish; we can start a new activity. Any day we wish; we can start the process of life change.
