Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6 KJV
How do you feel about change? Are you someone who embraces change and looks forward to the next new thing?
Or, are you someone who is hesitant when new things come on the horizon? Do you resist change fiercely without even trying to see if it will make, whatever it is, better?
What should our attitude be when changes come?
I guess it depends.
Now, I know, that’s a total non-answer if there ever was one.
But the truth is, how we respond to change has everything to do with how we perceive what the change will bring.
Let’s work it out together: let’s say you get a new employee at work. You are told to train this person because they will be your replacement.
In a situation like this it would be completely understandable if one was resistant to the change. After all who wants to train their replacement? Wouldn’t that in effect make their position obsolete?
But, what if you were to train your replacement because you were being moved into a higher position? What would the attitude be then? Would you be more willing to accept the change?
Change is inevitable.
We can’t always see what the end result is going to be but we can choose how we will respond to it.
