Change is something that many fear, and avoid. Without change, we can't always get what we want and deserve. Change is the key factor in growth and opportunity. Change is what allows us to step away from situations that are no longer fueling our soul, but instead harming it. Change allows us to find opportunities and go on journeys that we may have never know we could experience in our current lives. Progress will never come from staying in the same spot forever. Nothing exciting or worth talking about ever comes from decisions based in fear. Liberation comes from releasing fear and the embracing of changes. Part of making change is doing things that make you feel uncomfortable and possibly anxious. Although something may make us anxious or cause stress that does not mean the change should not be made. Usually the best changes and chances we take cause some type of anxiety or stress before we go through with them. But once we reach the other side and actually make the change, a feeling of triumph can often be felt. The anxiety disappears because we are finding something that we didn’t even know would make us truly happy. A big reason people avoid change is because they do not like unpredictability and so they feel uneasy making changes without knowing the outcome. The reason people fear unpredictability is because they may fail or make the wrong decision. No chance is ever a certain chance regardless of how much research or how predictable you may think it may be.
The one thing that most people don't think about is what is the mindset you are in when you are making a change. Are you making the change out of desperation or because you want to have an improved life? Often changes made out of desperation, will fail because the energy behind the decision was negative. If a change is made to move away from negative circumstances or to improve life, the decision will typically succeed because the energy behind the decision was positive. When making changes, the person must believe that change is going to work, or the change will not work because of the negative vibe you put towards it. The best way to make a change that will last is to move forward into changing, but detach from a defined outcome. When you work towards making a positive change, your mindset must be positive and believe that what you are doing what is the best possible choice in that moment. Always make choices based upon you best possible options, not the most comfortable options. There are two options to making change, you either fear it or embrace it. If you want to embrace change, you must do things that are outside of your norm. You must try and experience things you have never done before and also embrace new people that come along with the new experiences. Many of us tend to stick to groups and things that are familiar to us, and keep our lives as comfortable and low stress as possible. But if you embark on the new, you can likely find a new sense of self. No self-discovery was ever accomplished by staying within the same state of being you have always been in. Embrace change and you can embrace a new part of yourself. Find that you, that is brave and excited. Be that brave and excited person all the time, the one that lives out fulfilling experiences by makes changes and taking chances.
