I just had a conversation with someone who was afraid and frustrated and angry about some upcoming changes at her workplace. “I just hate change” she said.
I asked her to think of it this way, without change there would be no day or night, no trees, flowers, butterflies, dogs, cats or wind. There would be no future, no smile from your child or grandchild, no hugs, phone calls, texts messages or for that matter, there would be no you! You would never had been born, nor your mom and dad or grandparents, etc…
Change is what drives our species, planet, Country, town and business forward. CHANGE HAPPENS IN ORDER TO MAKE THE WORLD, TO CONTINUALLY MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON!Without it we die and go away. Is it scary? You bet! It’s also both worth it and necessary.
Allow yourself to have some faith in yourself. After all, you’ve made it all the way from where you were, to where you are! Let’s hear that again…
YOU’VE MADE IT ALL THE WAY FROM
WHERE YOU WERE,
TO WHERE YOU ARE!!!
That is a Hell of an accomplishment! You wont be able to even come close to counting all of the turns you could have taken that would have ended up so much worse for you!
ASSESS ADAPT OVERCOME REPEAT
Early in life, I had this phrase drilled into me. You know what? It works!
ADAPT…..to how the changes affect you.
OVERCOME…..whatever the obstacles that are in your way and find a better path to succeed.
REPEAT…..BECAUSE EVERYTHING CONTINUALLY CHANGES IN ORDER TO MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON!
You got this! Now go and make the changes in your life, positive ones…
