You can never change things by fighting the present reality.
To change things, build a new perspective that makes the present model obsolete. And remember “Change” is very rare. It's difficult, not easy. It will trouble you. And will bring you right down to your knees until you settle for it. Pain will become an integral part of the process and its something that no body wants. So, how do we get rid of the pain?
By accepting the change:
Change and Growth are the two sides of the coin. See the bigger picture and tell yourself that each and every smallest step taken by you is the preparation of the next level, for the best to come and for the life to hug you in its big arms!
Build on the change, build a new perspective, work on yourself, listen and enhance your knowledge, do not break the momentum. There are plenty of good people around to guide you, just reach out. You will be surprised how many strangers are happy to help. Of course, there are people full of negativism, but then there are the believers, the achievers, and the go-getters.
Make the best choices in choosing the right people on your path, to change.
Don't judge any one by his looks, clothes, watch, shoes etc. Judge him by how much 'vibrant content'he has in his mind.
You have to change with or without resistance.
