Are You Afraid of Change?
Change, no matter how you cut it, can certainly be a daunting task. There are so many ways to change; your image, attitude, environment, perceptions, addictions, and how you treat others.
However, let's explore the reasons for change. Firstly, aspects in your life that negatively affect self progression, whether put upon yourself or not, scream loudest to be changed.
Many times the guarded vaults inside ourselves mask this need for change, due to false pride, or the mere misperception of how change can improve our quality of life. As a result, a vicious cycle of negativity will hover if these changes fail to be made.
So then, how do we know when to prioritize a needful change so that it can be properly made?
No matter how blind one can get, signs from friends and family, or negative reactions to your conduct by others can definitely be the most telling, and that's where you would start.
This recognition is a crucial beginning point, because if you can't recognize and then admit, then you will always be in denial of your infractions.
For example: If you are a drug addict or any type of addict for that matter, the only way you are going to get clean of that chemical is not by force from the state or your family, but from within.
This introspection, though through a haze of chemicals or denial is tough, cannot be overstated in its importance. Although, when done with logic and perspective, it can be utterly empowering.
How does someone muster up enough will to make a critical change?
Despite what everyone else will think, whether bad or good; knowing yourself through introspection is indeed the best route with which to take, and will nullify all those external forces.
This, in part, is where your power to make that change will be generated. Instead of worrying how others will perceive you in your plights, simply put, ...don't!
Trusting yourself above everything else is fundamentally how change can start to be implemented. In addition, when a change for the better has been made, subsequent changes can and will be made more smoothly with less internal conflict.
Understanding the power of your own mind and how it can heal itself when given a chance is what I hope people can take from this article.
You do not have to be afraid of change!
Positive changes in life should always be sought out, and dispelling your fears through self trust can arguably become your best ally in making your next change.
