Life is full of changes, some of which can be monumental. It is a rare person that does not experience significant changes during the course of a lifetime. Some of these are beneficial and some seem to be devastating. But change will occur. The question is, can we influence change? Or does it just happen and we take whatever the consequences. There is a purpose in everyones life and, if one can determine that purpose, one can have significant impact on changes that occur. If we simply wait for change, whatever happens... happens. But if we anticipate change, often we can control it and turn it to our benefit. We can manage change, and even initiate it, and find the outcome to be tremendously rewarding.
