Change is one of the most difficult things for people to face. And in the last 50 years the pace of change is faster and the amount of change we have experienced is greater than all the change man has experienced in recorded history.
When you think about it, the amount of change that we must adapt to is huge. Today many people are overwhelmed by change.
When we are overwhelmed we lose perspective. When we lose perspective we feel stuck. And when we feel stuck, we are unhappy.
In fact, Mark Twain once said, “The only person who likes change is a wet baby.”
One reason people don’t like change is because they get comfortable with where they are in life. They get used to their friends, job, etc. The question is, what can you do to better adapt to change and not feel as frustrated or stuck?
The answer is that you must become a learner. For too many, learning with any type of purpose ends with their schooling. If you accept change and stay educated about it and keep up with it in areas that are critical to you then you will become unstuck and move forward.
Change will still be a challenge but your life will be happier. Today, to remain relevant you must be a learner. You must embrace self-education. Formal education is a good start but self-education will enable you to embrace change and to lead a less frustrating and more fulfilling life.
However, when we are not willing to change, we get stuck in life holding on to what God did in the past instead of growing and moving forward into what God wants to do in the future.
Today, I encourage you to be open to the new things God has in store for you. Always remember that just because God has blessed you where you are doesn’t mean you can just sit back and settle there. God wants to do something new in you and through you. He wants to see you grow, prosper and flourish. Get ready and keep your heart focused on Him. Embrace change and see the blessing God has in store for you!
