A Daily Dilemma

I cannot for the life of me figure out why change is such a bad thing. Without question at some point during the day you will face an opportunity to reject or accept change. It could be as simple as taking a different route to work in the morning or as complex as beginning a new career. Considering the reality that my life was spared as a result of change, I am very interested in the psychology of change. As you continue to read this post, think about what it is that you despise most about change.

I am convinced that the majority of people resist change due to mindset. There are 2 primary mindsets that most people possess: the fixed and the growth. The fixed mindset is the one that when presented with change thinks “what must I give up?” The growth mindset perceives change as “what might I gain?” There is a fundamental difference between the two. The fixed mindset is based on scarcity and the growth mindset on abundance. The fixed mindset roots itself in comfort and self-preservation where the growth mindset is set on potential and willingly accepts risks in order to reach it.

By the book, the word “dilemma” means a situation in which a difficult choice has to be made between two or more alternatives, especially equally undesirable ones.I just cannot understand the “difficulty” of this choice.

What’s the point of living a life unfulfilled? Do you really want to spend the rest of your days living a routine where every outcome can easily be determined beforehand? Change is a one of life’s greatest blessings but it comes in disguise. If you could see on the other side of change before it presented itself there would be no dilemma to deal with at all. You are a current version of yourself, great or otherwise. If you find yourself in the “otherwise” category could I implore you to do ANYTHING, ONE THING, SOME THING DIFFERENT tomorrow?
