Change is Good

When something is about to change in your life, how do you react? Do you embrace it with a smile or are you frightened of it?

If change sends you cowering into a corner, you'll probably know - instinctively - that your reaction is causing you to miss out on some of life's amazing gifts and experiences. So, perhaps it's time to look at change in a different light ...

Some people fear change so much they'll stay in a comfort zone (a place that really isn't that comfortable) because they are frightened of the unknown alternative.

Fear of the outcome ... of what change might bring ... is what holds people back. Some people fear success just as much as they fear failure. They fear they won't be able to handle what life throws at them.

Know this: change is inevitable. It is part of life's journey. Change is good!

Anaïs Nin once said, "Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."

Change enables us to evolve. It's what we need to truly live life's wonderful gift to the full.

So, how do you get beyond the fear of change? Well, you simply face it and do it anyway. Look upon change as an opportunity rather than a threat. It's all about perspective and what you believe.

Struggling with self-confidence or a negative outlook? Want to get into a better mindset to embrace change? If so, focus on your self-development to help you take the next step.

From today onwards, regard change as potential to grow ... see it as a chance to learn and expand into the amazing individual you already are.

Remember, change is good. While change is happening, make this your daily affirmation.

Today's quote:

"If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door."
- Milton Berle
