Newton’s first law of motion states that, every body (life, nation, state) continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion (progress or regression), unless propelled by an external force (something drastic)-brackets mine.

The energy of the will to change is itself is an invigorating force that will determine the fortunes of every individual. This pushing force is the ability of an individual to identify opportunities, taking action and initiatives in the direction of the opportunities, and the ability to be able to sustain the goals.
