Many people are afraid of Change, because they view it as the destroyer of their comfort zones. They fail miserably to see that the same Change is the creator of something new, exciting, and of potential value in their lives. Do not be afraid of Change, but do make an effort to manage it when the Opportunity knocks on your door.
