Winston Churchill said “to improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often”.
If we are not committed to continually improving ourselves, or if you like developing our characters, how do we expect to make the most of our time on the planet?
For the majority change is hard, we are creatures of habit whether those habits are good, bad or indifferent. Typically change will come from three places:
- I want to change (internal – desire);
- I need to change (internal – desperation); or
- I have to change (external – law, regulation).
Change for the sake of change is foolish so it is vital to have a clear view on the objective and inherent value before embarking on a process of change whether personally or in business.
On one hand I find change to be exciting and on the other scary – working through the fear is my biggest challenge! However, if we risk nothing and do nothing we limit our experiences, our growth and our capacity to be of use to others.
If you struggle with change or just don’t know how to go about it, look for someone who can help and live your life with no regrets!
