The Two Sides Of Change

“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up & look for the circumstances they want, & if they can’t find them, make them.”
~ George Bernard Shaw

    Sometimes change comes in waves that knock you down; sometimes it comes in waves that lift you up. For much of that change, it all depends on the angle at which you allow the wave to hit. For those of you with an unexpected wave coming, stand strong & be quick to pull yourself up for the opportunity that’s sure to come after.

    In change, many see the negative, & sometimes the change is so painful that’s all we can see for a while. You’re allowed to mourn, but I also encourage you to think about the positive, because it’s out there, & once you find it, standing back up will be that much easier. With that said, I’ve noticed that some see only the negative in situations that are nothing near as dreadful as they’ve made them. Learning to shed a positive light on obstacles that are difficult to overcome can make them much easier, & in the long run you may find that the obstacle was not near as difficult as you’d originally thought.

    I say this because positivity has made my life incredible. Somehow, I’ve found that positivity can often even catch you as you fall & remind you that you’re stronger than you realize. It can lift you up & inspire you to go further than you’ve ever gone before. Positivity is an important ingredient to making you stronger during change; so much of an ingredient that you may become addicted to it as well as change.

    This last week, I found myself in a difficult situation, but I found that all of my worrying was worthless. When all was said & done, a new light was shed on my life. Positivity is what not only made me realize how valuable I am, but how strong I am, & it continues to make appearances in my life unexpectedly. I’ve erased negativity in my life. This is how I found myself sitting here, opening the doors to my very own company.

    There’s no telling where you’ll be 10 years from now, but I can promise you that without action, there won’t be a result – there will just be. Change will happen as you expect, as well as unexpectedly but like I said, it’s the angle at which you face the wave. Whether you take action & face the waves as you go, or choose to wade in ankle-deep, scared & waiting for a storm – that’s your choice. I choose to explore, take risks, & face change head on because I feel that life’s worth truly living & about experiencing the things you’ve always dreamed.

Are you willing to go the distance?
