Lately, I’ve been working with quite a few clients on dealing with, managing, going through various types of change.
One thing that strikes me as so interesting is how surprised we are (as humans) when we encounter change. It’s fascinating, right?
Everything is always changing and yet, when we encounter change we act surprised. As if change is so uncommon… so unexpected.
But it isn’t. Change is rampant. We encounter changes every-single-day.
Change just shows up. Change just ‘is’.
It’s how we define the change that really matters most. What we tell ourselves about the change is the primary culprit for all of our angst.
What if instead of acting surprised when things changed, we chose instead to expect it?
What if we planned for things to move and be fluid, instead of rock steady and solid?
How might believing that change is a normal part of being human, change how we experience our world?
You can’t change change by yelling at it, ignoring it, or whining about it.
You can determine how you want to interact to the change.
What you want to do about it.
How you want to adjust to it.
Change is the constant. Consistency is the exception.
