There are always two forces that are in conflict in the world. The forces of changes and the forces that wants to stay the same, the status quo.
Everytime, everywhere and everyone will face these two conflicts.
When you think that your current job sux, and you want to do something different, like start your own business, wou will start to doubt yourself. Your dreams forces you to change, but doubt comes in and that is the force that wants the status quo to remain.
PPSMI? To be competitive in the world today we must be up to date in terms of knowledge. To have that we must have a good mastery of English. After all, it's a fact nowadays most of academics studies is published in english. But at the same time we dont want to lose our language and culture. We just want things to stay the same.
Everytime we encounter something new or challenge our mindsets, we will have to make a decision. To let it change you with the good and the bad, or you can choose to ignore it and stay the same.
Understand that isolation and segregration brings no good to anyone. Look at China and Japan a few hundred years ago when they had closed door policies. Nothing good came of it, and they finally open up and had reaped the rewards. Look at North Korea, isolated, delusional and ignorant.
Change and improve is the only way to succesd. Survival of the fittest. When Darwin said that he didn't mean survival of the strongest but he meant survival of the most 'fit', survival of those who are able to adapt to surroundings good and fast enough. So are we adapting to changed well enough?
To those who are against change and never give solutions, I say "Go to H*ll!" You're not contributing. Help us to avoid making the wrong changes (Not just let us stay the same only) if not just go away.
Change is good. We just need to make sure the right changes are made.
