How to Embrace Change and Improve Your Life

Updated on June 19, 2013

Change Happens

Things change. Some things change for the good, others change for the bad.

Whether we like it or not, change happens.

I’m sure I’m not telling you something you do not already know. If you are reading this, you are probably standing at a crossroad of change right now.

You are not alone. I’ve stood at that same crossroad, and I always feel like I don’t need to be there. I want to be somewhere else.

Let’s face it: change is hard.

It’s hard because we don’t know what’s coming. We don’t know what’s next. We wonder what the future holds. We wonder if we will be okay. We wonder if we will be equipped for the journey because we know that change is a journey.

Beloved, although you may feel uncertain and unsure of yourself right now, know this: you will always have what you want and so much more for the journey. Life will always help you.

The Divine Nature of Change

I don’t believe in accidents. I believe that every moment in life is a consequence of purpose as well as development. We are always growing and changing. That’s life; growth and change. We’ve been growing and changing since the very day we were born. It’s a natural process. Everything on earth changes all the time.

Look around and you’ll notice that everything changes on a daily basis. Every day of your life you get a little older. Your skin is different. Your hair is different. You lose some hair today and hopefully you’ll grow it back in the right places (smile). Your cells change too. Neurocells that send and receive messages throughout our body renew daily.

The world changes too. When a tree falls in the forest, it no longer stands and the forest is different. When natural disasters occur, the landscape of the earth changes. When the wind blows the sand on the shore, the beach changes.

Nothing stays the same; therefore, everything changes. Instead of resisting it, embrace it. Continue to reading and let me to show you how to incorporate it with ease.

9 Fine Steps To Embrace Change and Improve Your Life

1. Don’t resist or fight it

2. Accept That is Occurring

3. Don’t Act Before Thinking

4. Think About What Is Happening In Your Life/Situation

  • Exp. Losing your job –what are your next steps?

  • Look for work

  • Network

  • Improve skills

6. Visualize a successful conclusion –See what you want to see happen and take steps toward that vision

7. Take Action – Do what you need to do now

8.Seek Help or Guidance from A Wiser Soul if you don’t know what to do or have the skills

  • Get expert advice ex. Career counselor, job bank, group, lawyer, financial adviser

  • Wiser individual could be experienced, friend, prayer partner, spouse, parent, employer, etc

9. Keep moving toward your plan until you’re living the picture you envisioned for yourself

Discover A Universal Truth About Change

Universal truths have stood the test of time. They are true whether we believe them or even know they exist. I’ll discuss one of them and share how it relates to embracing change. One is: what goes up must come down

The Cycle

What goes up must come down has been scientifically proven in gravity. This truth is also evident in other areas besides gravity. The stock market is one area. When evaluating a stock it is best to look at its progress over the last two to five years. Usually, when a stock trends up it will grow for a while, then at some point it levels off and starts to fall. No stock ever stays at the stop permanently, it will eventually fall.

This truth is revealed in history. Throughout history, powerful dynasties and empires rise and then fall. No dynasty reigns forever. The beneficial news is that when a sizeable empire collapses it brings about a change. The change occurs because another dynasty or empire has risen.

What goes up must come down reveals that there is a pattern of change. Change always occurs with;

  • A beginning (the birth and emergence of something)
  • A middle (the building and development phase)
  • The ending (the change, the collapse, the decline)

All things must come to an end, and all things must begin again. That is why change is needed, and it must be embraced as a cycle, a part of life that cannot be avoided. Change must be accepted if we are to be experience new things, grow from those experiences and move on from on those experiences to explore new things.

Now it’s your turn, what change do you most resist?

Change is a Beginning and Ending; Embrace the Good

      Congratulations on turning 55. That's a nice milestone. Look at how far you come from 10, 20 and 25 years ago. As we age, we must remember that we are better now. We are always learning new things and improving our states of mind.

      I know right now may be confusing with all of the life changes, however think about the ones that you've already survived. I'm sure there have been many.

      Next, take some time to focus on what you really want. If that doesn't work think about what you don't want to happen and start taking action against it. We can't prevent our kids from moving on, but we can navigate our own next steps. After all, our lives are the only lives we are responsible for in the end.

      In a way you do indeed know the future, history points to it all the time. As you continue to live you will get older and things will be different. The actions that your young self takes now will influence the life your older self lives. Take time to dream and envision the life you want to live as you move through the next phases of life. What do you want to see happen? How can you make it happen? How can you accept the eventual changes in life with ease? How can you be happy, really happy?

      I feel that I am in the midst of a number of changes right now. I turn 55 this year, and I can feel my body changing. My parents and in-laws are nearing the end of their lives and starting to have health issues. My children are entering new phases of their lives, beginning careers and families of their own. Sometimes I feel confused as to where to go and what to do because I do not know the future. Thanks for the advice to embrace it and look forward to wonderful things!

      Thanks for stopping and sharing. I agree with you 105% life is a cycle. Endings really don't just end things, they also begin things. Beginnings are always exciting. May we travel forward with ease during this life cycle. Hope you pass this way again SuperiorInteriors.

      I believe that once we accept the fact that life is a cycle and everything must come to an end, it really frees us to accept the adversity in our lives, embrace change, and become the people we are destined to be!

      Thanks for the great Hub livelifeworryfree! Much appreciated on this day, and every day!
