How to Embrace Change and Make Steps Toward Improvement
There’s an increasing amount of people who reach some level of comfort they deem appropriate in their work and personal life. Once they get to this convenient place with no complication, they become complacent, fail to continuously push themselves to achieve greater success and, consequently, flatline. After this loss of momentum, they get so comfortable in mundane routine that prevents them from experiencing any sort of growth. We live in a world that is constantly changing and growing; tomorrow is nothing like today, and a world away from yesterday. Just like our world, for you to find true fulfillment, you must change as well. We realize that one can make the argument, “Why would I change what’s already been working for so long?” Our answer to this question is plain and simple: to better yourself.
The Fear of Change
A reluctance for change in your life can be attributed to the doubt, fear, and uncertainty stirring inside. These emotions can be extremely damaging to your ego and detrimental to decisions you make, along with the risks you take (or don’t take). It’s true, change can be scary, and failure can be a total nightmare. However, what’s scarier is going through the phases of life simply existing, not living. Making changes to your life can open doors with amazing opportunities that will never be an option if you stick to the ordinary.
Steps Towards Change and Acceptance
We have several pieces of advice regarding making changes toward your personal improvement in your work that will directly translate to the other avenues of your life as well.
First, you must accept that change is going to happen no matter what you or anyone else has to say about it, change is a part of life. Being consciously aware of change will be beneficial to you in order to adapt to unforeseen curveballs thrown your way. This leads us to our next piece of guidance and step towards embracing change.
If change is inevitable and can’t be stopped, why not harness it? Become the creator of change in your own life. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and pitch new ideas. A million-dollar idea might be just sitting in your brain waiting for you to vocalize it, but if you never say anything, nothing will ever change.
Lastly, embrace change. This is the most crucial step towards your personal development because once you embrace change, you gain that momentum back that catapults you to a new realm of endless possibilities. At InnoVision, we have found comfort in change and the fact that it gives us access to creating the best version of ourselves, ones that we can be proud of.
It doesn’t matter if you’re the CEO or an entry-level associate, there’s always room for change.
We’ll leave you with this phrase that we all live by here at Innovision: If you never change, you’ll never grow.
