The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we CHANGE.- C.JoyBell C,
In my final year of my bachelors degree, one of my modules was Change Management, it was basically about the need or importance for change in an organisation, how to introduce it and how to handle resistance to change among the subordinates etc. Oh wow look at me, I never thought my bachelors degree modules would one day come in handy😂.
I totally believe that CHANGE is in the equation of PROGRESS. In order to move to the next level there should be an element of change. Change is Inevitable! In our day-to-day lives we are experiencing changes and in most cases they are for the better.
The challenge however, is when change comes when we least expect it. It is not always the case that change happens when we want to. In actual fact it’s always the opposite but in the end we are happy about it. So why not Embrace it! The greatest lesson I learnt from my Change Management class was that, even if you resist change, it aint going to bow down to you comfort-zoner😂. It progresses and leaves you behind. It’s up to you to catch up.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” – Lao Tzu
Change always brings forth positive rewards but in some cases these rewards may come in later on in your life or worst case scenario they may not benefit you but instead benefit your family, community or even your nation. One biblical example that encourages me is when God called Abram (Genesis 12 :1-9) to leave his home country and his people(comfort zone) , to forget about it all and move to an unknown foreign land. WHOA! This was a drastic change, but he accepted and we all know the end results, because up to know we still speak highly of this Fella called Abraham!
PS:I am definitely against CHANGE that is manipulative and has selfish interest!❌
