All of us afraid of change.
Once we are used to a routine,it is very difficult to adapt to a new one.
But the fact is life throws at you many surprises you won't expect.
Only change is changeless here.
Forecast a change,adapt to the new life once it embraces you,face the challenges are the essential traits to be successful.
When i first landed in United States of America back in 2000,i was a bit uncomfortable.
I couldn't understand the accent,Cultural differences.
Slowly by watching the TV,speaking to the clerk at the gorcery counters,i learnt the accent.
By working with the locals,i undertand how friendly and compassionate these people are.
It is a land of opportunity,a great nation.
I read a book by name "OUR ICEBERG IS MELTING" in the last week.
It is another short fable like "Who moved my cheese".
