The thing is … change is going to happen.
We can’t really help it. At times, we’re the ones who initiate the change but in other cases, change is thrust upon us. In both cases, the one thing we can control is how we deal with the change at hand.
I loves this quote from Socrates:
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
When change comes, we are presented with what could be the greatest opportunity we’ll ever have. We owe to ourselves to not blow it!
We might not be able to choose what changes will come our way both professionally or personally but we can choose how we react to it.
So, whatever comes your way today, tomorrow or next week, make the decision to jump in with both feet and, as Socrates said, “focus all of your energy on building the new.”
Be well and make it a great day!
