Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable. William Pollard
Accepting change sometimes may be unbelievably difficult, may be it’s something about not fully knowing the expected outcome of our decisions.
Especially when we have become used to certain methods and paradigms within our comfort, we tend to believe that the familiar is always a safer option.
Deep within us we yearn for something different, we are looking for more.
We desire to improve, even just a little bit; but silently we wonder and ask questions.
What if that new job doesn’t come with any challenges to get me on my toes?
What if the new neighbourhood does not soothe my children?
What if the new city creates a barrier between me and my family?
What if the investment does not yield enough profits?
The what ifs are literally fears, which most people refer to as the fear of the unknown.
Change is inescapable, whether you are prepared for it or not, it will come;
so why not take the edge, and take the upshot as a lesson and an impending guide for the future.
As long as you are not the same age you were the previous year, as long as you wake up every morning, you will experience changes.
We should be proactive and intentional about certain things in our lives.
Not having to wait for something in the universe to click for a change to occur.
Neither should we have to wait for a certain time or wait to see certain signs before we make a move.
When the opportunity does not create itself, you create one; take bold steps, break barriers.
Borrowing a quote by Kyle Chandler – “Opportunity does not knock, it presents itself when you beat down the door” – simply gives us a different perspective.
Sometimes we know exactly what we have to do to turn things around, read post on keeping on track here.
If all we do is wait for the right moment, we may never get anything done.
Make that move today.
