Every day we are confronted by change. Why is that so frightening?
Our favorite television program isn’t renewed. The grocery store where we shop rearranged all the products. The make of car you’ve always bought is no longer manufactured. Even if we stand in the same place, the world changes around us.
So, are we Chicken Little saying the sky is falling? Or are we looking for mountains to base-jump from?
Fear, change and your environment
A lot of that has to do with our environment – cultural and physical.
Were those around us adventurous or disdainful of those crazy people who thought television would revolutionize entertainment and believed that nobody would sit around the living room staring at a box.
Every new idea came from someone who looked change right in the eye and dared it to blink. So what allows some to not only think outside the box, but not even acknowledge that a box exists? They learned that because change is constant to embrace it and see what it has to offer.
Well, what if you weren’t born with that particular gene? Does that mean that you can’t use change to your advantage? That you’re doomed to wear a path in the rug, repeating the same behaviors over and over? NO!!
You can innovate and expand with the best of them.
It just takes altering one behavior until the old pattern is broken and a new one takes its place.
Read the last pages in the novel. Shop an aisle in the grocery that you usually pass by. Try a new food item in the restaurant you frequent. Go online and search for innovative approaches in your business, then research one of those that could be used.
Remember, change is more than those coins in your pocket.
Change is the “open sesame” to a whole world of opportunities. Embrace it.
