Give change a chance

Give change a chance

Change is a constant of life. No change. No life.

Yet, we are instinctively frightened by change.

We resist it.

Sometimes we even try to pretend it’s not happening or that we can stop it.

We can’t.

The key to navigating change is self-awareness. Inquiring of ourselves, amongst other things, what about this change is causing me to resist it?

Change often means that we lose some position, influence, or power that we previously enjoyed. Sometimes it is the eclipsing of this that causes us to resist or resent change.

What we fail to realize is that though change causes us to lose some things, it also brings us new opportunities.

Better to be resolute and look change in the face asking ourselves how this change is inviting us to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.
