Thanks Tedster. Those are words of wisdom.
As you mention most of us are in the same boat. We interpret based on what we see and hear.
The common bond with successful people is that they believe they can thrive in areas where there is cooperation and competition.
The common bond with no-so-successful people is that they blame others for their failures, and complain.
Surfing the wave of change is where we need to be - whether in business, or life. After all, live is and will always be about change.
Embrace that - and you will likely ALWAYS do well.
