“Change brings opportunity.” Those wise words were spoken by Nido Qubein. As people living in a culture of change, we shouldaccept these words and embrace the opportunities that are waiting for us to seize. In today’s society, things are constantly transforming. Often times, people view change as a hassle or completely resist it. It would be nice to see the world accept and see the good that can truly come from change.
Change can be a good thing. It opens the door to new things that some people never could have even imagined. For example,means of communication have developed a lot over the last century. Telephones, radios, televisions, cell phones, email and social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter; all of these things and more were modifications in communication that allowed for unforeseen opportunities. Communication is a wonderful example of how an entire culture can experience a turn for the better.
People are often apprehensive to change. Even when change is needed and seen as a positive, people are unsure and will resist. Change is not something to be feared, it is something that should be embraced. It truly helps people, or organizations or whoever may be involved, really evolve. Without changing, there would be nothing new, nothing to strive for. Tony Robbins said, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten”.Change is necessary to move forward in life, or, like Robbinssaid, you will never get to receive or experience anything new in life—you will never grow.
The National FFA Alumni Association is starting to make several new developments. Hopefully, the members view this advance as Nido Qubein did. The changes that the National FFA Alumni Association are committing to will truly help the organization evolve. The changes will take some getting used to, just like any adjustment, but the modifications will help better the organization and its’ members. The only way anyone ever benefits from change, though, is when people cooperate. Luckily, FFA Alumni Members are wonderful people who will stand by the organization and help each other adjust to the new transitions and seize the new opportunities together.
