Why Change Scares Us?
Change is difficult for many people.
Very often our whole identity is wrapped up in what we’ve learned and been taught as children. We assume it will work for us the same when dealing with others.
Allowing us to survive, thrive and fit in.
That, unfortunately is not ALWAYS the case.
While some people have had to learn to thrive in the midst of change and become more adaptable by being open to new ideas and embracing change, many others have had to fight for survival and every table-scrap that came their way.
Behavior is learned and it takes work to unlearn and dismantle these old beliefs.
Too often we become enmeshed in competition or our ego screams for attention when really all our spirit wants is for us to unleash our brilliant gifts into the world.
You can’t take it with you so aim high and bring that brilliance forth. What is not given is lost forever.
Creating Amazing Changes.
The truth of the matter is that win-win is always possible. If you are able to see beyond your ego and recognize the abundance that is available, people, minds, and ideas come together and can create amazing changes that improve the current scenarios for many, many people.
When you work with people who have an abundant and generous attitude, you are uplifted and amazing energy and creativity is unleashed. This is much harder to do, to sustain, and to elevate within others when you encounter individuals driven by the thought of scarcity and competition.
Take the High Road & Recognize your Truth for change.
People like Steve Jobs are visionaries that have sought to bring about such shifts in society and in business. One thing I’ve learned along the way is that it is often better to take the high road.
This isn’t about judging others as wrong or seeing yourself as better than others. This is about recognizing your truth as to how you wish to BE in the world.
Don’t compromise your integrity. But also don’t get caught up in the competition. Keep your vision in sight, picture the outcome, feel the purpose and passion you’re driven to offer the world, and give it freely.
We all die. You can’t take anything from this life with you. So give
the world what you have to offer. Make it a better place for not only those you love but for those to come after you.
Be generous with your knowledge and visions and create a legacy worth emulating for future generations.
Remember: What is not given is lost forever.
Gratitude serves your Spirit of Peace.
If your goal is to truly bring about a positive change and serve others, then how it is accomplished becomes less important and seeing it accomplished becomes more important.
While it may be a blow to your ego when others criticize your inspiration, or someone takes the credit for something you’ve introduced, holding fast to the benefits for everyone will often soften the sting.
You do need to pick and choose those places where you’ll offer yourself, the key is to evaluate whether it is serving a common good. If you’re getting compensated for your contributions, then gratitude would serve your spirit of peace.
Hold Fast to your Inner Qualities.
Knowing that you are accomplishing your purpose and living your passion will be the reward. With time all your effort will be recognized and appreciate.
Imposters will eventually be seen and heart & soul will always outlast the mind & ego. Along the way, through the journey that is your life and career, you will need to hold fast to the true inner qualities and nature of the brilliance that is you.
Don’t allow these negative experiences to become something that undermines your value. You are not the negative experience. Often times, the negativity we experience from others, is more a reflection of them and less about who you are.
Don’t Doubt Yourself.
We all have different lenses, different gifts, different wiring, and different experiences. Differences are not something to be judged, they are a gift of diversity that brings the pieces of the puzzle of life together and creates a society, a solution, a technology, etc., together for the benefit of everyone.
Don’t doubt yourself when others cannot see the vision you see. Keep true, keep your intentions, and you will attract the right support, the right people, and the right opportunities.
Lower the ego and aim your vision high.
Ideas for change
Need some ideas on changes you’d like to make?
First- Make a list of things you’d like to change.
- Menu Planning for the week
- Eat healthier
- Exercise more
- Learn a new language
- Stop wasting time watching TV
- Endless social media
Now from that list choose just one thing to concentrate all your energies on. So let’s say you want to learn a new language. What language do you want to learn? How much time can you dedicate to learning this new language?
Do you have easy access to the resources needed to learn this language? OK, then. Schedule at least 10 minutes daily to learning this new language. Once you’re comfortable speaking it in practice go out and find people whos native tongue is the language you just learned.
Once you’ve mastered to some comfortable extent this new language see if there is a group, organization, etc that would be interested in having you teach the basics of this new language to them or the children in the group.
How exciting would it be for a 6-7 year old to learn a new foreign language! Even if it is just the basics of ” Hello” “How are you” “Goodbye” “Where is the bathroom” “how do I get to the bus station”.
Just think, if you hadn’t decided to learn that new language, then gone off and be brave enough to teach it to other people/children they never would have learned even one word of that language. Much less three or five whole sentences.
