Change is the only constant thing in our lives.
Sometimes it happens knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. Nevertheless, we can’t avoid most of them whether we like them or not.
We can accept changes either as a good change or a bad change. If it is good, we don’t have to give any effort to adapt it.
But…. What if it’s a bad change…?
We have two options, either adapt or we can ignore it and move on.
Let’s see how to adopt changes even though it is hard to accept in the first place
- Change our attitude
As the first step, we should look into the changes in a positive way. It is up to our minds. If we need to adapt to the changes, we must find pros and solutions for the cons. In that way, it is much easier to accept the changes in our lives.
- Identify the fear towards change
In this process, we will identify that what makes us afraid of change…
The answer is self-limiting beliefs. We all have self-limiting beliefs more or less and they make a comfortable bubble around us. Those beliefs make us afraid to accept changes that go beyond our comfort zone.
We must overcome our fear by replacing self-limiting beliefs with positive beliefs.
- Have a purpose for life
When we have a life purpose, we know the path to our success. If we have life goals our mind automatically tends to adapt changes. When we don’t know the purpose of our life, we always tend to stay in our comfort zones. Life purpose and life goals give the courage to come out from the comfort zone and accept the changes.
- Move on from regrets
Sometimes past mistakes in our lives give us regrets and these regrets make us reluctant to accept some changes in our lives. If you look deeper into those regrettable circumstances, you will realise that those regrets are not actual regret but life lessons. So, each regret teaches us a lesson and our duty is to take those lessons and move on our lives by letting the regrets go.
- Be curious
We already know that our life is full of changes. We don’t know what will happen next. If we are curious about the next chapter of our life, eventually we will start to see a life full of challenges. We will replace the word changes with challenges that make our life more excited and alive…
We only get one life and changes are part of it. Changes make life interested and beautiful as well as hopeful. Without changes, life could be boring and hopeless. Therefore it’s vital to accept changes in our lives and embrace them.
