Embracing change can be scary, especially for business owners, but the best thing we can learn in life is how to embrace it. We’ve all heard the saying that the only constant in life is change. Some change can leave us reeling because instead of happening slowly and in increments at a comfortable pace, it occurs rapidly, constantly, and chaotically at all scales of our lives.
Change is the only constant in life.
Change is inevitable. We can choose to spend energy being uncomfortable and embracing change or devote energy to resisting it. We don’t always know what’s coming next, but we do know who we are and what we’re capable of. As humans, we cling to certainty. Not knowing is super uncomfortable. But whatever we want to become, embracing change is crucial to achieving it.
If we want to change, we can’t stay the way we are. No matter how much you resist change, the universe will push you to move out of your comfort zone. Our minds may put up a good fight because our brains are wired to stick to what’s familiar to keep us “safe.” However, embracing change is critical to living an extraordinary life.
The only constant in business is transformation.
Being open to change is required, especially regarding an organization’s long-term survival. In business, if you do not change with your environment, it will leave you behind without a second thought. A leader who does not know how to adapt to change will have difficulty moving the organization forward.
In business, just like in life, change is the only constant you will face. And if you are not embracing change effectively, in both good times and in bad, it can sink any momentum you’ve created.
As Albert Einstein once said, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
Embracing Change in Life and in Business.
That which nourishes can also destroy. The little incremental things add up over time and can make massive transformations. How do we shift from required to inspired? We need to understand where we are going and how far we want to go and give ourselves the time to get there.
If you take 15 minutes a day on anything, you can become a master at it. You get to choose – decide what you’ll commit to over the next 13 months, and watch what happens. A commitment is when you eliminate all other options. Commit to embracing change in life and business to overcome the inevitable challenges change will cause.
