Change your Mind

We can get hung up on making changes for a number of reasons. Perhaps we are afraid of failure or we are not certain that it is what we want and so we hesitate because we don't want to make a mistake. We all can have individual concerns that make a change somewhat like climbing Mount Everest.

This kind of approach makes change an obstacle rather than a natural part of life. We make changes all the time adjusting to what is going on in our environment and often without even thinking about it. We just do it and then in the next moment just do something else.

Change can be as simple as changing our mind on what we want to do in a situation and then if we don't like the results to keep on changing until we are satisfied with the results. No big deal as long as we give ourselves permission to change our minds any time we like as long as we accept the consequences of our decisions.

Worrying about change does absolutely nothing except give us heartburn. We definitely have to think about the results the change will bring to our personal environment and if we can live with that then just do it.

Change your mind change your life.

Your thoughts?

I'm a women so I can change my mind often. Okay, pulling your leg here a bit. Many people cannot stand change and they fight it tooth and nail. They get comfortable in their environment. Many are also very unhappy in that environment. They are just too stubborn to take that first step. Great food for thought Peter. Hope all is going well. :)

About to embark on a major job/career change myself this post helps me. Although with age I think I've become more accepting of change largely because of how I chosen to view it as a natural event and that it won't be the end of the world...hope hope........T
