We all experience changes in life; typically from our career, relationships, health, finances, the list goes on. Most times, we’re already so comfortable and settled where we are that we prefer to not change anything about it, even if the change leads to something better. Our minds get flooded with ‘what if’ scenarios—”What if I don’t like the new job?” “What if I can’t find someone else to love me?” “What if the stock market falls?” We form these imaginary scenarios in our minds and start believing them which breeds fear and causes us to resist change.
Michael A. Singer once stated, in order to grow, you must give up the struggle to remain the same, and learn to embrace change at all times. No expansion or revolution can take place without change, and periods of change are not always comfortable. Change involves challenging what is familiar to us and daring to question our traditional needs for safety, comfort, and control. This is often perceived as a painful experience.
