"The first step towards success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself"- Mark Caine
People who transformed society are those who have discovered situations in the society that keep it at a distance far from progress. That means, to change a situation, you must first agree beyond every shadow of doubt that "you can't be there any longer".
The next step is to climb out strategically and relocate into your new edifice of better preference. How can that happen?
You climb out with the strong belief that you are never going to be suppressed by progressively failing methods, unplanned ways of doing things, poor methods of management and others.
Resist every obstacle that attempts to cripple your feet from taking progressive steps. You can think well outside the box when you get the ladder to climb out.
