It seems a good idea to change yourself or the situation, but we often resist it, and we can’t be easily changed. Why is it like that? Because of the fear of change.
In this article, we want to talk about change, the fear of it, the reasons, and the solutions.
Sometimes, some people have a good job, house, family, friends, and hobbies, but yet they want to change them and move on to something new and even higher. (good to great). But when it comes to taking actions, they see how much they fear to change, and they let go.
The reason is all about the brain. The structure of our brain is set to be resistance toward changes. This is why we can say the human mind wants to stabilize the situation. Even it resists when we think about changing something.
Is “fear of change” a bad thing?
Sadly, everyone tells us that fear is something terrible. Men won’t be afraid, so don’t be scared.
No! it is not valid. Fear is reasonable because it can be the beauty of light or a guide. Because whenever you are afraid of doing something, you should know that it is a good thing.
For example, the first time I had to speak on a radio program, I was pretty stressful because I haven’t had the experience before. It was an excellent task to do. I practiced over and over, but now, it’s getting easier!
The same goes for business. When you want to change something in your job or workplace, you will be afraid so much that it tempts you to let go. You need to know that change is necessary if you want to improve.
Every time you feel afraid, put your palm on your chest (where your heart is) and say: I am glad to be scared right now because it means I am doing something big.
The next thing to know is that you will fail in business if you refuse to change. Many business people willingly change, so they will step up and leave you behind. It’s you that has to take new steps and come up with something new.
I suggest that you ask yourself this question, “where will I be in 10 years?”, whenever you start doing something new or trying to change.
It’s vital to know what you have started is going to get you to the right place, state, and position.
Another point is that many people think like you. They believe in fear of change, and they refuse to change. It’s an opportunity for you. My motto is:
Today, do the thing that others are not ready to do so that you can do stuff tomorrow, which others can not do.
It means I try so hard, fail, stand again, and try harder. The process not everyone is ready to go through it, but then I can do things in the future, the things that others are not able to do. It feels great!
Of course, it doesn’t mean to go forward without planning and analyzing the risks. You don’t have to waste your investment because you don’t have enough experience. First, read more and learn more about something you want to start and change. Then go through it and make it happen.
Being successful requires experience, asking questions, learning, analyzing the risks, knowing its information, and checking everything.
