Change is all around us all the time and unfortunately we cannot escape from it. We need to live with it. Benjamin Disraeli said "In a progressive world, change is inevitable. Change is constant".

So, this is something, to a certain extent, we must accept. Why?

  •  If things are bad, the only way they are going to get better is for them to change.
  • If we want to progress in our careers, we have to make changes in order to do so.

  • If management changes invariably the style of management changes.

  • If we are made redundant, again we have to get used to change.

  • If our clothes get old fashioned and we want to look up to date, we have to change our style.

  • If things get worn out we may not be able to replace with exactly the same so we have to accept change.

  • If a relationship breaks down, again we have to accept change.

  • If we want to move up the housing ladder, change is the only way.

  • If we are wanting good weather because of our plans and it rains, we may have to change our plans.

  • The seasons change.

  • If you are stuck in a rut, you can initiate the change for yourself.

  • Change can be for the better, or for the worse.

  • Sometimes we take it for granted, accept it and sometimes we hope it will go away.

The secret is to recognise it and accept that you have to do something about it if you want to. It is not something you can hide from. If you play your cards right, you can manage change to your advantage. 

At the end of the day, there is only one person who can recognise it, decide to do something about it, or just accept what comes and that is you.

See change as an opportunity and use it to your advantage.  A life coach can help you to manage your change.
