How do you handle change? Do you dread it or embrace it? Change can be hard – goals you set for your health and fitness are positive changes, but you may feel anxiety as you progress. It’s OK, just keep remembering why you chose to make these changes in your life and how the results will benefit you in the long run!

Facing the Unknown

A lot of people nowadays are dealing with the great unknown — a future that is uncharted and ever-changing. Whole industries are either changing radically or ceasing to exist, and with the changes, the collective knowledge and experience of a generation or two is turning to dust.

It’s a difficult time. Between the great digital revolution and the changing industrial climate of the world, people no longer have the security they once thought they had.

How do you greet a future such as this?

With a positive outlook, and a simple rule: “Whatever may come, wherever I may go, I resolve to greet the changed world with optimism and a renewed belief that whatever reality comes my way, I will make it serve me, and I will excel in the effort!”

That little motto is a motivator for the future, because it accepts the change that comes, but does not surrender to the defeatist side of change.

You can choose to ride the wave of change, or be buried in its depths — that decision is up to you. Retrain if you need to, but train early. Learn constantly, and choose to see the trends before they overwhelm those around you. Move in response to the changing world, and make the bets that will serve you in the future.

Each massive change in society brings with it winners and losers. You may not be able to start a great technical company, but you can purchase the stock of the up-and-comers, and gain an ownership position in the change. You may not be able to continue your present job at the salary you are accustomed to, but you have abilities and habits and experience that can be moved to a better position in your own company. You might not be as young as some, or as old as others, but age was never a good predictor of success, anyway. The paths you choose determine the destination that awaits, and even when you need to make a mid-course correction, your life can still lead to a bright and shining destination ahead, fulfilling the goals you wish, even though it might not be in the job you hoped.

“Things change” — no saying is more true. It may be that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you are not a dog, and life is not a trick. Anyway, older dogs learn new tricks every day.

Learn, grow, change, move, succeed. Remember the motto — change will serve you.
