Fear of change...

Friday, April 16, 2010

I'm stating something that I've known for a long time...people hate change! I worked in a small grocery store for a new owner and he came in and streamlined everything. It was great for the workers, it made our jobs so much easier. The people of the community would come in and all they could say or comment was why change we like the old way better.
As I heard these comments I would say out loud "Change is good, it keeps you young" and reflecting on that CHANGE IS GOOD, it gets us out of the ruts we've kept or allowed ourselves to be in for so long. If we are overweight and have decided to make a change to lose weight then change is a good thing. Anything that we do that affects us positively then that change is good.
Once the changes were in effect at the grocery store that I worked at and people could finally find the items again then they started commenting on how they could see the changes benefited both the workers and themselves.
It is getting rid of the fear of the unknown, and looking forward to what change will bring us. Change keeps us young and looking forward to the new challenges in our lives so don't worry about what may happen but look forward to each challenge life brings us as a learning experience and think on the bright side.... If I lose 20 lbs I get to go shopping and buy new clothes, I get to hear compliments such as hey you're looking great are you losing weight, what are you doing to lose it?, Be an inspiration to the people you love and look forward to making the right changes and choices in your life! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon You said it! But how many people out there don't want to change.. whether it's the way they eat or the books they read or the tv shows they watch. Change can be a new adventure or a challenge but like you say, it can all be good! I've been prooud of myself for the changes I have made... today has been my first really bad day but I plan to be in control again tomorrow and best of all, not feel guilty, but acknowledge that I made a conscious decision to take a day of today!
