Change Happens…Deal with it! by Lee Milteer
I have a big sign in my office that I see every day: PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES ON AND DEAL WITH IT. This sign reminds me that yes, I know we are clearly in an economic storm but I refuse to be BESTED!! How about YOU? Are you going to let the change in reality best you? Are you a victim or a victor? Are you having a pity party for yourself? These are choices you must make daily to think clearly. Most people are going through life scared and worried. You have to understand that no matter what is going on you must not join the afflicted or paralyzed masses.
One of the most important rules of success is that you must not be reactive to life but have a proactive approach. It’s your job to understand that life doesn’t just happen to you. Your choices make your life good or bad. Your thoughts create your mood.
James Allen, in his famous book, As A Man Thinketh says, “Circumstance does not make the man, it reveals him to himself.” The next time you meet with adversity, temporary defeat, or failure, remember that you may have no control over the revolutionary changes or unpleasant circumstances, but you do have control over your reaction to these circumstances. Exercise this privilege by searching for the seed of opportunity, which is carried in every experience of adversity and sorrow.
We must choose to be proactive in life and not let life happen to us. We must be driven by our values and goals, not by outside circumstances. Your greatness comes from within, so start today to capitalize on your own talents and potential. The emphasis in our life should be on developing the vision; to see beyond the current situation, develop mental control over our emotions, feel our own power and assume responsibility for our future. If you don’t take care of yourself–who will?
To deal effectively with change, we must question our perceptions. When we resist new ideas, we reject new ways of thinking before we’ve even given them a chance. We think the past will be the same as the future. Our vision is narrowed by the old way of looking at life and we tend to hang on to traditions, ignoring new ways of thinking because we’re not used to looking at our problems from a broader perspective.
It is important to understand that our mental and emotional attitudes are shaped by our habits and our thoughts. If we welcome change, we look forward to experimentation and challenges of new ways to do business. However if we’re in a rut and don’t like to experiment with anything new, we shut down any real opportunities for growth and new solutions. A fixed identity is not going to help you deal with the new reality we live in today. The more we honor our own power to deal with life, the less we will feel cheated or stressed out by change. When you stubbornly hold on to old ideas of the way things should be you shut yourself off from new solutions.
