We are living in a world of the most dynamic change that we have ever seen or experienced in all of human history. And by all accounts, things will change more radically, unpredictably and faster in the future than they are changing in the present. The impact of change on every aspect of your life is something that you must take into consideration with every choice or decision that you make. At the same time, there must be a central core to your existence. There must be an axle around which the forces of change turn on a day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month basis. There must be something at the center of your being that remains constant if you want to maintain stability and balance in your life and enjoy the sense of inner peace and control that goes along with it. Sometimes people feel that they are controlled by external circumstances. But the fact is that your life is largely determined by your own personal choices and decisions in every area. You are where you are and what you are because of yourself. You have gotten yourself to where you are as the result of the choices and decisions that you have made in the past. If you want to be somewhere else in the future, it is up to you to make new and better choices and decisions in the present.
