    Unfortunately, I'm a creature of habit and do not like change. So to answer the question, I would probably lean towards waiting on change.

      About habits, I like to change my habits for any betterment and I am always ready to do that. I am ready to change myself rather then any external things/people because for me it is easiest if their is any scope for constructive aspect.

      I too am subject to my dislike for change.  However, I feel like the more I continue to do the same actions, I am only getting the same results in return.  Perhaps change is not always a bad thing.

    I always prefer to wait to change things on their own course of action. I believe in giving Time some time to change the course of things/actions normally rather pushing it myself.

      I agree, but I know that sitting on the couch and waiting for something to fall in my lap can only go so far.  I have always been told that if I want something bad enough, I have to work for it.  Only, it seems that some people have to do less work.

    I like to grab the bull by the horns. Unless it's something entirely out of my control, I am usually able to see results. My chronic impatience probably has an effect on this trait.

      Chronic impatience aka: drive.  Good for you!  I wish I had more of that "grab the bull by the horns" attitude!

      It's a blessing and a curse.

    I do my best to make things happen. Sometimes it's difficult to tell if it's something I can/should change or wait for to change.

      I feel the same way!  I'm always a little hesitant about making major life changing decisions.  I don't want to make a hasty decision and regret it later on.

    I usually wait a little while. If things do not improve, I change them myself.

    This is interesting!
    There are certain things, which will happen, when they have to happen. You can not force them to change sooner or later. This tests your patience.
    Whereas you can make the difference in certain cases by bringing the desirable changes by your effort,  and hard work.
    When you sow a seed in the soil, it does take time to grow, give flowers, fruits etc. And then you have to nurture it also.  Some of the things in life are similar to that. Patience is the key, in my opinion.
