This might sound silly, but why do you change the style of your clothes? Why do you eat different foods at different times and places? Why do you enjoy the company of some people some days, and other people on other days? How do you explain that sometimes you want to be left alone and other times you want to be with others?
It all boils down to an inner need that all of us have. We want to have a sense of control over our lives and to make our choices freely, when we want to make them. Something that we can’t control is change. Change happens all the time. It is inevitable; it’s a fact of life. We are all different, and change affects all of us differently. But there is also a universal desire within everyone. That desire is to experience life to its fullest. Change allows us that opportunity.
So, when change comes knocking at your door, if you are packed and ready, then Bon Voyage and enjoy the journey! But if you are still contemplating where you want to go or what you want to do, answer the door slowly and invite change in while you get ready!
Something to Think About
If you’d like to change, if you’d like to be different, if you would like to try new things, then dance with change when given the chance.
If change comes knocking this week, swing open the door and welcome it in! Take a new route to work. Try something you’ve always wanted to try. Do something spontaneous – even if it’s out of your comfort zone. In fact – especially if it’s out of your comfort zone. That’s where we learn the most! You may even want to challenge yourself to prospect outside your comfort zone by walking your neighborhood farm, creating five business connections, or increasing your prospecting calls.
