Change Is Hard, But Have You Considered The Alternative?

Read this if you’re scared to make a change.

Change is hard.

But it becomes easier once you acknowledge this universal truth:

It’s harder to avoid change than embrace it.

Change is your natural state —you grow, evolve, learn, and adapt every day.

Your core values and the people in your life may stay relatively constant (or maybe not), but the world they inhabit is in constant motion.

The same is true for business.

Products, economics, customer needs, and the value a business provides is always in flux.

The world constantly reshuffles the deck around you— that’s life.

Despite the constant presence of change in your life, you probably tell yourself over and over again that change is hard while failing to acknowledge that not changing is harder.

You dig in our heels, bury your head in the sand, and hope the need to change will magically go away.

That approach can work for a while, but eventually you wind up in a circumstance more difficult than the change you needed to make to avoid it.

Not changing stunts your growth and can doom your future.

But there’s a simple solution.

The next time you struggle to change something in your life, consider how hard it will ultimately be to not change that thing.

It just might change how you think about change.
