Circumstances change for life no matter if we want them to or not. Whether we like it or not, life moves on. Nothing remains constant in our lives for long. And do you know the strangest thing? Far too many people are simply passengers in their own lives… riding along in whatever direction their lives move.
Fear of change actually prevents people from taking real control of their lives. Sure, we make choices from time to time. We choose where to vacation and where to buy the house, or choose what car we will drive, what restaurants we’ll eat in and what clothes we’ll wear. But for many, the BIG choices and the BIG decisions simply are not made… well at least not by them.
Yes it’s true that many people have a fear of change. And it’s perfectly natural. After all, we are creatures of habit aren’t we? And, if you accept that we humans are creatures of habit, you will see just how intimidating change may be. Habits create comfort, and let’s face it; we humans love our comfort, don’t we? So when we consider deliberately making a change for life we fear the loss of our familiar comfort.
What are the BIG choices and the BIG decisions? We’re so glad you’ve asked. Simply stated, the BIG choices and BIG decisions are the life changers. These are the choices we see and the decisions we make where our life moves in a new and exciting direction.
Stepping out of our “comfort zone” can be scary and for some, downright painful. But here’s a secret that many of you may already know… your real growth and your real development occurs outside of your comfort zone. So when you cast your fear of change aside and step outside your “comfort zone” your life moves into a new state. And what does that new state feel like? Thought you would never ask.
Outside of your “comfort zone” your life moves into a state of hyper awareness. You become aware of everything. The amount of stimuli you experience can be very intense. It can be terrifying and it can be exhilarating. For those of you who have bungee jumped from a high structure or ridden a massive roller coaster, you will know what I mean. Absolute terror and then all out exhilaration!
Now imagine your emotions being more intense and longer lasting! You feel alive! You are aware. You are conscious. When you choose to make a change for life and your life moves in a new direction that’s aligned to who you truly are, that’s what you experience. And the good news is, the fear will be very short lived, while the exhilaration can last a lifetime.
