Edward de Bono, the great lateral thinker, once invented a special word, 'Ebne'. It is an acronym. It stands for 'Excellent, but not enough'.
There is a famous old saying, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' But is that really a reason to stop exploring the possibility of progress?
 If sharp words are exchanged and worrying developments occur, crucial discoveries are being made and valuable developments are taking place May be well placed to make some constructive connections. 
Sometimes, even the toughest have to let themselves be helped.  In other words, even if you resolve to take no action at all you will find yourself struggling to repress the urge to do something.Hence, your big, tough, I-can-cope-with-anything personality-----Nothing stays the same forever. We all understand this. That's why we cling so tightly to all that seems stable. It's why we make so much of the apparently permanent. It is also why we create distractions, dramas and diversions. Far better to get caught up in a fuss about nothing than to feel overwhelmed by the idea that nothing is worth making a fuss about. Or so we think. 
The more resilient the packaging, the more fragile the content can be.Faith,  can move a mountain. Indeed it can, but it can move it all the more efficiently if it happens to be equipped with a large stack of dynamite and a bulldozer. You now fervently believe that something is possible. We have high hopes - and rightly so. This does not mean, though, that we can now sit back and wait for everything to fall into place.
Other people win the Lottery. Other people have it made. Other people get to live in perfect homes with perfect families and drive perfect cars and have perfect jobs. Or do they? Actually, all that other people really do is sit around imagining the other people who are leading a better life than they are!
