What is the sole purpose of a rubber band? The sole purpose of a rubber band is to stretch; if a rubber band does not stretch, it is very much useless. So what do we have in common with a rubber band? Well, we have to stretch too; meaning that we have to keep growing, learning and striving every single day to become a better person. The best way to become more valuable can only be done by stretching. If you do not stretch, then what is your purpose? If we do not keep changing, then what are we doing? In fact, change and growth are the only evidence things are alive. So be alive! I am 26 years old and I am definitely not the same person I was when I was 21. I definitely did not think the same way as I do now. Also I did not lead the same, and in fact I made some really dumb decisions. Now, 5 years later, I make less dumb decisions, but I know for sure that I’m not that same 21-year-old kid. Furthermore, 5 years from now, I will also be different and hopefully I make even fewer dumb decisions. Imagine how you will change also in the next 5 or even 10 years! Maybe you will even be unrecognizable. The point is that we should be constantly changing. The world changes so we must change with it. However, people only truly change when they want to, or they hurt so much that they have to. But it is always a conscious choice. One difference between successful people and normal people is that they learn from their mistakes, they say “never again!” or “I will never go back.” Remember GROWTH=CHANGE. In the end, life is just a big wheel of change, embrace it, and always keep stretching.
