REWARD YOURSELF, YOU DESERVE IT
Never Forget That You Too Need a Reward from Time to Time
Ralph Masengill, author of Conquer Change & Win’

 

 

“Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.”—Arnold Bennett
Understanding how change works can change your life for the better and give you a solid advantage. That’s a guarantee. Here are some interesting facts about continuous change to get us on our way:

  1. Most of us will not change until the pain of not changing is greater than the pain of changing.
  2. Most people often prefer the security of known misery to the supposed misery of unfamiliar insecurity.
  3. Change is continual—intended or not.

Number one on the list above was once true for me in a big way. Before I learned how to handle continuous change and understand the effect change had on my personality, nothing seemed to get better. I seemed stuck in a continuous rut. Understanding continuous change turned my humdrum life around. To understand change, you must work at it continuously.


What do others say about change?

“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” —Carol Burnett

“Change your thoughts, and you change your world.” —Norman Vincent Peale

 

Deep down, no one likes dealing with change. However, we all like the results of what we see as positive change. We often are in pain because of continuous change; our resistance to change will also cause us pain. The sooner we stop resisting the positive changes that happen in our lives and accept those changes, the sooner we have the opportunity to feel less stress and set our business and personal lives up for even more success. To be truly successful in any undertaking, you must embrace positive change and the pain resistance brings. You must do this willingly and often.

We accept risk every day when we embrace positive change. Do you take a calculated risk, or do you sometimes just roll the dice and hope for the best? I admit that in my younger days, I did more rolling of the dice than I want to talk about, and I had to pay the price. I paid the price by losing time, money, and happiness. Many times this was out of my own ignorance about change. One time, I almost lost my business. But we can learn from our mistakes. Mistakes can be good teachers. However, I have found that this is a very expensive and painful way to learn.

Charles Tremper puts it this way: “The first step in the calculated risk process is to acknowledge the reality of the risk. Denial is a common tactic that substitutes deliberate ignorance for thoughtful planning.” I have a T-shirt that says, “Denial is not a river in Egypt.” Denial is one way to delay. It is like the ostrich putting its head in the sand. Denial is one way to attempt to live in fantasy land.

Executing any plan involves change. Being willing to change is a calculated risk that should be encouraged. Most business and personal success in today’s world comes when we accept this risk.
