Change is Necessary!

Of course, if you win the $1,000,000,000 Mega Millions drawing tonight, you’ll be quick to map out significant changes for your new life. 

But what about necessary changes for your life without luck and fortune? I believe we refer to that as everyday life. The norm, if you will.

It’s interesting that most people plan more for a vacation than for their future. Yet, proper planning for the future could enable you to have multiple vacations each year. 

But something has to change from the normal course of business, career, life. You can’t just keep doing the same things over and over again and expect different results. That’s referred to as insanity. 

Change allows us to move forward in life and experience new and exciting things. When you don’t actively work on evolving yourself, life can become stagnant. For instance, learning new skills or working on your inner self can bring about changes you never knew were possible.

Why is change necessary in life?

Change ensures that bad situations end. So long as you embrace change, you will find that your situation does not have to last forever and you will progress on to something bigger and better. If you reject change, experiences and opportunities in your career are likely to pass you by.

Is change necessary for growth?

Change is inevitable. There is comfort in predictability, but the truth is, without change, there is no growth. Without change you will keep making the same mistakes.

What is the purpose of change?

To evolve is to change. You may believe that you are subject to change; that things are outside of your control (determinism). Alternatively, you may believe that you create change; that you are the master of your actions (free will).

Why must we embrace change?

Change pushes you to become a more evolved person. You learn how to adapt to new circumstances, think of unique approaches and work to accept yourself. These adventures come together to promote personal growth.

Why is change hard, but necessary?

Evolving takes courage. And we must use this courage to keep surviving and feeling good about our choices in life. We are adaptable creatures.

What stops us from changing?

Fear of discomfort, pain or effort all stop us from changing. These fears prevent us from exercising, as it may hurt, from eating healthy, from changing career or starting our own business, from embarking on a new relationship, or leaving behind an old or negative one.

What are the 3 elements of change?

Author Dallas Willard tells us that successful change takes three elements: vision, method, and will.

  • Vision. Successful change hinges on a picture of a desirable future.
  • Method. Once you have a vision, the next thing you need is a method.
  • Will. The last item is intention or will.

Why is everyone afraid of change?

Confusion. People fear change if they don’t understand the reason for it – and then they resist it. Change causes uncertainty and means pushing people out of their comfort zones. However much we might complain about them, it’s our ‘routines’ that make us feel secure.

Let’s recap…

Change must be planned. 

Change must be ignited.

Just wondering, that since so much time is spent glued to a smart phone these days, if CHANGE were calling you, would you answer or just let it go to voice mail?

Have a great day. Make it happen. Make it count!
