CHANGE is a scary word for most, around 62% to be more specific.
I am the first to admit, I dig me some change. Like, I like it A LOT.
But for most, it's not your jam. Or at least that’s what you tell yourself.
I am here to tell you that as long as you convince yourself that you are "afraid of change" or that you "don't like change", you are prohibiting your own growth.
When you convince yourself that "I don't like change... It’s just the way I am", you begin to identify with not being good at change and that couldn’t do more harm than anything in this lifetime!!
Come on friend:
You can be anything and anyone you want to be at any point in time.
Your past has NO bearing on your future and the preconceived notions you have about yourself do not have to be true, especially if they aren't serving you.
Can change be incredibly challenging? Yes
But, priceless? Absolutely.
Here’s a new thought to consider: CHANGE HELPS YOU GROW!
You cannot go to the next level in any area of your life if you’re not willing to change and by stepping into a seat of change, you will absolutely grow!
A growing you is a healthy you! Stop telling yourself that change is scary and tell yourself that change helps you grow.
I’ll even take it this far: The reason you don’t have what you want… aren’t as healthy as you’d like to be… aren’t making the kind of money you want to be making… don’t have the level of depth in relationships you desire... or simply don’t feel free and alive is because you’re not willing to change in any of these areas. It’s likely you’re even avoiding change!
Mark Twain said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Change won’t kill you… or hurt you… it will GROW you!
Now, give me one thing you CAN change to help promote your own growth?
