Why is change a good thing? When change is upon us, we either meet it with angst or we greet it with open arms. Those who greet it with open arms are ready for something new and feel excited about the upcoming change. Those who meet it with angst have change thrusted upon them without their consent.
Whether the change is for better or for worse, it all leads to something better for you. Now this is hard to believe when you are going through bankruptcy or filing for divorce, however, you have to believe that good comes from these situations. It may takes days, months or even years to see what good can come out of it. But if you look into your past, you can find situations where it didn’t seem positive at the time, and it turned out to be the best thing that happened because it led you to something better.
We go through constant change in our entire lives. We go through a multitude of changes when growing from baby into an adult. Change is a part of nature so the more we resist it, the more resistance we create in our lives. In tribal cultures, they see change as not the end, but the beginning of new life. So we need to embrace change.
Embracing change allows us to gain more clarity in life. When we embrace change, we are presented with opportunities that were never there before. Therefore, change is not the end of everything, it helps you gain a clearer sense of direction in life. Without change, we may never fully realize our true desires and purpose. It is only through contrast in life can we define what we want and make the necessary changes.
Here’s something to ponder… What if the change that is thrusted upon us is actually forced onto us by the Universe? That some hidden intelligence knows what’s best for you and has presented this situation requiring you to change so you can transition into something better?
As Tony Robbins says,
“Life doesn’t happen to you, Life happens for you.”
