I hate CHANGE.
I am one of those people that order the same thing every time I go to a restaurant; I never try anything new.
There’s nothing wrong with not liking change. There is, however, something unhealthy about RUNNING FROM CHANGE.
“CHANGE is the only constant in maturity.”
If you always fight change, you will never grow. If you want to mature, if you’re going to grow, you have to be willing to CHANGE.
One thing I am sure about is I don’t know everything. (My wife would confirm this if you like) Because I don’t know everything, I tend to ask a lot of questions, “Why would you say that?”, “Why would you do this?”, “Why do you believe that?”.
The one answer that makes me cringe every time I hear it is, “because we’ve always done it like that” or “because it’s always been that way.”
Right now people are reading this that need to make some changes. Some serious, some not so serious. (yet)
There are businessmen and women whose companies would grow if they would make changes in their staff, “But they’ve been here forever!” It doesn’t matter. CHANGE.
There are husbands whose marriages are slipping away because they won’t grow up, “She knew I was this way when she married me”. So what, CHANGE!
There are some teens that are reading this, and you know that if you don’t change the decisions you are making, they are going to wreck you. Don’t wait. CHANGE!
There are parents who are about to lose your relationship with your kids because you can’t admit you might be wrong. CHANGE!
Don’t let pride or comfort get in the way of your growth. We were created to go to the next level. The next level in our RELATIONSHIPS, in our WORK, in our SCHOOL, and in our FAMILIES.
DON’T BE AFRAID OF CHANGE!
