In the final analysis I can’t find a single thing that is not relevant to life.
What particularly attracted me about this thing-a-ma-jig was the line ‘Subject to change without notice.’ For those who have suffered thanks to ‘change’ they may be shaking their head, wanting things back to how they were but we all know that is not possible.
Taking that negative change and turning it into a positive requires acceptance and a plan to knit a new and positive future with some, but not all of the remnants prior to the change.
When I posted this of Facebook this morning (re-post from The Idealist – click through the photo to find them), a friend was also attracted to ‘Subject to change without notice’, except she *wanted* change.
So, considering that ‘change’ is often based on unknown variables should we wish for change just for the sake of it and take a risk? Or, should we focus on that need for change and then formulate a plan to make it happen in a constructive way?
Conclusion/Answer? Every person without exception (who is of sound mind and body) has the capability to mold their own destiny of change – You just have to come up with a PLAN! It is best not to let change change you into a negative being. Nor is waiting for change to just happen a viable option. Grab hold of it – shake it up and make it the best thing that ever happened!@ I can attest to the value of both unwanted and wanted change and the formulas, though different in some respect are the same in many. The willingness to deal with any given situation belongs only to you is the common denominator.
There is a tiny, simple book that came out quite a few years ago that became a multi-national best seller. The principle is completely simplistic and yet executives, coaches and masses of of people embraced the concept as if it were new and radical. It is:
Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson MD is the best-selling business book of all time. It’s sold over 23 million copies world-wide and has been translated into 42 languages. People have relied on it to get them through changes big and small.
You can put those same principles to work in your organization (and in your LIFE) Whether you are reacting to changes around you or there are changes you would like to make happen.
