Undertaking change shows really clearly what we are wedded to in terms of the status quo. Change really holds up a mirror to where we are rigid and more fluid in our understanding of ourselves and how this plays out in our day to day lives. If challenged, all this bubbles to the surface and with some delving, prompting, exposure, reflection and feedback - my, is it possible to realise the current state of play!
Fixed thinking can be helpful at times, through being able to assist with making rapid decisions or in giving expert advice. However it is important to re-evaluate and freshen knowledge and skills to adapt to the various circles that we live in. It is easy sometimes to stand as a facility to change and feel at ease, but when it is you doing the changing - that can look very different. My greatest fear is to be stuck, and to wake up years on with a eureka moment that I wished I actioned years ago. Yes, hindsight is a great thing, but it is better to be able to say you changed and tried than to have stayed static for fear of the unknown. In my experience, the unknown soon becomes the comfort zone and time to move on is much needed.
Look for your encouragers and opportunities, they are there waiting, for when YOU are ready...
