OK, get Ready. ‘Cause I’m gonna lay some tough love on ya. Here goes. Change is inevitable. And there’s nothing you can do to change that. There. I figured I might as well rip off the bandage in one short burst of pain. Because there’s no sense in softening the blow if it keeps you in your comfort zone instead of reaching your potential.
But just because change is inevitable doesn’t mean it has to be bad.
For example, I had three beautiful little children when I first started my own business. But, then they changed. And they weren’t beautiful, little children anymore. But that was because they grew into three beautiful young adults. So, the change was inevitable. After all, we all grow up. Right? But it was awesome to watch their transformation.
So, it’s not change that can stop you in your tracks. It’s the fear of it. When you are afraid things will change, it’s so easy to fall into the trap of hiding from reality. But when you realize that change is inevitable, and you plan for it, your life can be so much fuller and make so much more sense.
Yeah, fear tends to only lead to regret. For business owner and entrepreneur wannabes there are typically two kinds of fear. The fear of failure. And the fear of success. But guess what they have in common. OK, I won’t make you guess. Both lead to inaction.
And inaction leads to guess what. Sorry, I’m gonna stop telling you to guess. Inaction leads to more fear. Because when you do nothing, you start to fear you’ve put yourself too far behind to catch up. Or you fear that you won’t even know where to start. Eventually, you start to fear that you’ll die without ever getting where you wanted to go. And there’s another fear. I read an article that touched on that subject. It said:
“Yet, death is not the worst thing that can happen to us. The worst thing that can happen is to allow ourselves to die inside while we are still alive.” Yikes!
So, the worst that can happen is actually NOTHING.
Let that sink in. A friend of mine wrote a song that included a line that said, “Nothin’s gonna happen to you.” Again, think about that for minute. Can you honestly say you’d prefer that absolutely nothing ever happened to you? I can’t imagine how boring and bleak life would be if nothing ever happened to me. Those “things” that “happened to me” helped me grow and get stronger.
My prediction is, they can do that for/to you, too.
Some marketers like to use the phrase “fail forward.” I get what they mean. But I don’t consider the stumbling blocks and setbacks in life as failures. They’re opportunities to learn. Because you and I aren’t perfect. Mistakes (which are also changes) WILL happen. But you can use what you learn from them as fuel to keep you moving forward.
Especially when you have a clear vision of who YOU are and where you wanna go.
So, that’s why the very first lessons in RondaReady YOUniversity are designed to help you discover your Vision. And they can help you focus your energy in the direction you’d actually like to go. With strategies to help you know how to get there better and faster.
