The choice to change

Leave a comment

by Joseph Raffa

In every human field change is inevitable. The old established attitudes are constantly being modified or rejected and new ones take their places.

The mind has a tendency to become fixed in traditional or habitual ways and resists change that appears too radical.

But change will not be denied its opportunity. Through new generations comes the support to take society in a different direction.

What people fully support will prevail. New arrangements may have little of this in the beginning. But if the changes are seen to have value, slowly the support comes.

It may seem that leaders, whatever their role in life, initiate change. But it is the readiness of people to embrace a new direction that determines the success or otherwise of the initiatives that leaders put into motion.

So, whatever issue surfaces into public awareness, the individual role is the final arbiter of what, for a time, holds centre stage in human affairs.
