The Challenge of Change

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad. C.S. Lewis

Change (sometimes called challenges, disappointments, failures, and the like), in our lives is something most of us tend to avoid.  Change is hard whether in personal relationships, business, politics, finances – whatever. It’s like the bird trying to come out of the egg.

In reality, the only constant is change. We are in a state of flux until we die. Although facing change head-on is like swimming against a river’s current the benefit is that the process, while painful at times, sharpens our senses and makes us stronger as we struggle to adjust.  Yes, it would be much easier to simply go with the flow but any dead fish can do that and who wants to be a dead fish?

The struggle that comes from the emotional, psychological and physical effects of change is necessary to go forward and grow stronger. If you don’t move forward, you will move backward – there is no staying the same. It is the struggle that enables you to achieve the next level.

Don’t be a dead fish that floats with the current (death) or an bird that won’t break free of it’s shell and only wished it could fly (slavery). The goal is to look at change with expectancy (positive mental attitude) and embrace the opportunities that will come to you as a result of enduring the pain of breaking free from the challenge of change.

Living is a grand experience.  Embracing change will make it possible for you to learn life lessons and live life to the fullest.

Now, its up to you. Go create an amazing day.
