ADAPT OR DIE
Changing circumstances and the ability to accept it!
The reality is that we cant avoid a changing environment and the more we try to fight it the harder it comes. Change in our lives is constant and it is important to get comfortable with it and learn to embrace it.
Our choices, chance, life experience or even crisis can all be triggers in our lives for change to occur. Whichever way you look at it we end up having to make a choice weather we make the required change or we don’t.
The more resistant and unprepared you are to change, the less control you have over how you take your life forward. You live your life as a reactionary rather than an activator of change in these cases.
Unexpected events cant be avoided in our lives, bear in mind that its these events that push us out of our comfort zones and challenge us – this is where our growth lies. Running away or ignoring such challenges means we’re losing out on the chance to learn and grow.
Strategies for adapting to changing circumstances
1 – Mindset – fixed mindsets and self – limiting beliefs show up at times of change in the form of fear. Interestingly enough, it is our power of choice that enables us to activate positive change in our lives. So actively using your power of choice allows you to focus more on proactively taking control of your life and will lead you to see challenges and change in a positive way.
2. Searching for direction In Your Life
Having a clear thought of what is important in your life gives you purpose and sets the direction of how you want to live your life. This thus provides you with the clarity and focus required to successfully adapt and manage the impact of change in your life.
3. Write a challenge list of things you can’t see yourself doing – Then Go Do Them
Change is scary and it is all about stepping out of your comfort zone into the unknown. Our subconscious needs to get familiar with us stepping out of a comfort zone and doing scary things. It should be our job to make this the norm in our lives.
An idea is to make a list of scary things that you would like to do but have been too afraid to. Put a plan in place and then go do them. Then make them happen, enjoy them and step into the unknown.
You deserve nothing but the best in this life, especially as we only have one to live. To make our desires and dreams come true we have to be able to adapt to a constantly changing environment but being proactive in our approach to life.
