Accept that change is inevitable and embrace the changesposted by Russ Whitney in Russ Whitney
Welcome back my friends. It’s Wednesday and I’m Russ Whitney, your host for today’s blog. Today we’re going to be talking about a subject that many people don’t like to think about, and a reality that’s sometimes hard to face.
Let me start with an old adage that goes like this; the only two things in life that are certain are death and taxes. Of course that might be true only in the United States, where taxes are the bane of most consumers, but you get the point.
The truth is however that there is one other thing in life that is certain, and that’s change. Change is as inevitable as the sun set, as unrelenting as the tides and as reliable as new flowers growing every spring.
From the day that every single one of us is born we’re changing every day, and so is the world and the people around us. There’s no way to stop it, and pretty much no way to reverse it either. Like a cupcake that’s been baked, there’s no way to go back and separate the eggs, milk, flour and sugar.
The best way to deal with change is simply to accept it and, better yet, embrace it. (And eat that cupcake!)
Think about it this way; if you want to learn how to play the piano, you’re going to have to change. You’re going to need to learn how to read music, use both of your hands in unison and move your fingers on the keyboard in a way that produces something beautiful.
Again, if you can’t play the piano, the only way to learn is to change and, once changed, you’ll know how to play for the rest of your life.
That can be said for pretty much anything. A baby is born without the ability to walk or talk but, over time, learns the skills because it changes. That baby experiences new things, learns new skills and grows up. Without the inevitability of change, that would never happen. Think of the diaper bills!
Sometimes, for example, you can have an excellent blog writer working for you and producing the best, most interesting and well-written blogs but, because of change and the factors that it brings about, you hire someone new who can write those blogs more cheaply. (Not exactly better, but more cheaply.)
Is it wrong? No, because change happens. The fact is, change doesn’t have any emotions or intelligence, it just is.
Again friends, the point is that change is inevitable and, rather than fighting it, you just need to accept it and, if you want to live a happier, more joyous life, embrace it.
Thanks for dropping by today. I’m Russ Whitney wishing you a wonderful day, and I’ll see you back here next week Wednesday.
