    In real world, the successful persons are those who adapt to the changes in their environment smartly and most effectively, and surely not those who resist mindlessly. No matter how strong, mighty and intelligent you may be, you are still vulnerable to the inevitable continuous changes in our world that are way beyond your control. History teaches us that even mighty dinosaurs, who emerged over 200 million years ago and ruled our planet for 135 million years, could not survive as they were unable to adapt to changes. So be Smart and Savvy to survive in today's fast paced dynamic world. Embrace the changes, even though you are stepping out of your comfort zone, and operating outside your element. Your strategic adaptation to changes, and effective Management of Change contain the seedlings to your survival and success. Cheers, my friend!
