No one would dispute that this is a season of great change throughout the world.
A look at events in Tunisia, Egypt, happenings in Libya, natural disasters in Japan all re-inforce that we live in an ever changing world.
Our lifestyles and the ways in which we communicate, have changed dramatically in the last decade, and now the job market is changing constantly. Yesterday’s jobs are being outsourced to other countries, and today green jobs are increasing, young people are returning to farming and the health services jobs are becoming increasingly specialized.
My question to you (if the question resonates with you) therefore is why are you so opposed to change, when change is the only thing that is constant in this life?
If your answer is fear…(of the unknown), I challenge you to do something about it. So now, you are wondering how would you do so? You can take baby steps, like a toddler learning to walk.
How about doing something different every day for the next 7 days?
Take a different route to/from work.
Choose to eat something you’ve never had before or thought you would not like.
Call someone you’d like to get to know better and arrange a lunch date
Get a new and different haircut (highlights, streaks, etc???)
I’m sure you could come up with lots of different ideas; but at least you get the point I am trying to make. Whatever, you choose to do, I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised by the result.
So go ahead, shake off the fear, “feel the fear and do it anyhow”.
Step out of the box and you may well learn something new about yourself.
If the change that is coming has to do with your job, just remember that when one door closes, another one opens….but that can only happen if you stay open to possibility. Above all, strengthen your spirituality….that is the foundation upon which you should build your life.
If you try this 7 day assignment, please send me feedback and let me know the outcome for you.
