Success is a matter of laws and we are referring to the laws of nature. Change is nature’s law. We are either moving forward or we are going backward. We are either creating or disintegrating. There is no status quo.
A seed, if it is not planted in the earth to create, disintegrates. Change is inevitable. It is going to happen whether you like it or not. All progress is change but all change is not progress. We must evaluate change and accept it only if it makes sense. Acceptance without evaluation amounts to conforming behavior, a sign of lack of confidence and low self-esteem.
There is a lot to be said about tradition. Growth for the sake of growth is the philosophy of a cancerous cell. It is negativity spreading all over. That is not growth, that is destruction. Growth, in order to be meaningful, must be positive. Success is not a matter of luck, but of laws.
How many times it thundered before Franklin took the hint! How many apples fell on Newton’s head before he took the hint! Nature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint. – Robert Frost
