The word CHANGE can be define as; "To become or make difference. To substitute or replace something. To pass from one place to another."
Based on the definition above, change has to do with moving from one stage to a better one. Change is good to us and is very necessary for one to adopt. It is quite sad that we as people don't want to embrace change in our lives. We always stick to our own normal way of doing things, thereby missing out the blessings is that is in change.
With me here is an article of an unknown author that talks about the importance of change, which many individuals and organisations applied and it brought a positive results in the of individual and employees' work performance. Happy reading!
"One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big notice on the door on which it was written: 'yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym'.
In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.
The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more excitement heated up. Everyone thought: 'who is this guy who was hindering my progress?' 'Well, at least he died!'
There was a mirror inside the coffin: Everyone who looked inside it could see himself.
There was also a sign next to the mirror that said: 'There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: It is YOU.'
You are the only person who can revolutionise your life.
You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realisation and your success.
You are the only person who can help yourself.
Your life does not change, when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes.
Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realise that you are the only one responsible for your life.
'Examine yourself, watch yourself, handle yourself well in front of others.'
'Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses: Be a winner, build yourself and your reality.'
'The most important relationship you can have; is the one you have with yourself.'
It is not what happens to us, it's the way we choose to handle life that makes the difference."
Wow, What a great lesson to learn there! The secret of success does not lies in holding unto what you claim to know only, but striving to know new things everyday. The true is that, until one sees the need to change everyday, will not understand the secret of being successful in life.
So, we need to embrace change, don’t be so rigid in your thinking. Allow change to have its way in your life and make you a better person. You are more than what you think you are. You can do more than what you are doing now, if only you can change the method you use to apply to the one that is better.
Look around your life, and try to ask yourself these questions: what is it that I love to do and I’m being tight down by something that could not allow me to do it? What is it that is robbing my peace and joy? What is it that is making me to feel guilty or regret at the end? What is it that is telling me I can’t make it in life? What is it that is making me to be comfortable to the level I am? Until you deal with whatever that is pulling you down not to reach to the zenith of your life, not to reach to the place where God desire you to reach, it will be very difficult for you to accept change.
Friends, we all need change in our lives. When I talk of change, I mean positive change. We need to be where God destined us to be. He desires us to enjoy life here on this world and the life after. This can be possible if only you allow Him (Jesus Christ) to make change a reality in your life. Just let go, you can be great in life, you can make it.
Change is like a food you eat to keep body and soul alive.
You need it everyday!
