Why change is crucial in life

CHANGE is the most evident reality in life. Whether a person likes it or not change, is inevitable. In other words, change will happen, with or without your noticing, and it is unavoidable to all human beings.

Other people like to say that life is like a river, as it always keeps moving and might change, depending on the weather patterns.

So, if one has to live a life full of potential, then he or she has to embrace change in order to have a fulfilling life.

Take a look at past years when you were young with your family all the time, either going to church or undertaking other activities, and now you have your own life with your wife and children beside you.

So, time will come when your own children will be out of your house to start their own, independent lives. And for many of us we still walk into our closet and dream of being able to wear clothes that we used to wear a couple of years ago.

We loved the dresses we looked really good in and somehow wish that the good old days would come back so we could still hang on to those dresses, well my simple advice is give it up, bless somebody because that day will never come, face it.

That’s just a few of so many changes that occur to us or in our life every single day. If you can’t manage change you can never manage life.

Because life is a series of changes. We find life to be very tough because most of the time we don’t want things to change. And whether we agree or not the only way to stop change is to stop living.

And if you have not realized one of the most spoken words in the world in our century is change. It’s been used in all aspects of our lives and has become very common in our relationships, in our jobs, careers, business, schools etc.

it’s common to be forced to go back to school to learn new things that you never knew because life and the world at large is changing.

Certain realities have changed and in order for operations to keep on moving changes has to be implemented. Just take a few years back before the invention of computers the operations were carried differently and after the invention of computers people were sent back to school in order to be able to carry the operations as the result of the changes. Today I would like to talk about a few realities as a result of changes in life.

First , change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future as the present itself can’t be trusted because it just left you a moment ago.

The reality of life is you can never live your life focusing on your past or the present, the past is gone and the present is the result of who and what you have been doing in the past and if you want to have a different result, there is no other option than to change, you can never get a different results doing the same thing.

Second, if you want to make enemies, try to change something. It’s a human habit to feel comfortable in our comfort zones, we don’t want to stretch, we are scared of what might happen if we stretch a little bit and as a result we are victims of casual life. We become casualties.

And when one person is bold enough to make a change all the others will stand against him or her, they will discourage you, they will disappoint you they will do whatever it takes in order for you just to stay with they, they don’t want you to leave them.

My advice on this case is that, if you want to get to the next level in life the best thing you can do to the poor is not being one of them.

Make your move embrace the change take a different path, go out make things happen for you. They will hate you, criticize you.

Say bad things about you, oppose you, its fine don’t hate them back don’t loose your focus don’t let them talk you out of your vision.

By so doing when you get to the top not only you will be able to come back and give a helping hand to them and be an example but also they will be the ones to worship you.

And congratulate you. Third, I will put this in a quote, “Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on a track of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him” In other words I can say, if you don’t wake up and realize that what you have today you might not have it tomorrow and what you claim is yours may not be yours next month and if you don’t get out of the road and say am not going to change the future will run you over.

Therefore your life is not in your past it is in your future so spend more of your time focusing on where your life is and with that I mean in your future. There is a lot still to be explored, so stay tuned for next week ……
