From the time we get up to the dreams we see, the only thing constant in our life is change. Change is often seen as a temporary phase disrupting our well-charted routine of life. Change is intimidating to most because it initiates a different mode of action from what we have been used to earlier. It invites the challenge of behaving differently and, sometimes, even a different way of thinking.
Change must be evaluated. All progress is change, but all change is not progress. Once evaluated on the grounds of rationality, we must face it and deal with it. In not doing so, we fail to realize that change triggers an opportunity for the manifestation of higher goals and a break from the nonsense mechanical way of living. Change gears us to catch up on the pace of time to reach destinations effectively. The journey to achievement has personal and environmental constraints. Change acts as a tool to overcome the hurdle of the volatility of the environment.
We tend not to appreciate the potential value of our existing capabilities and strengths because they have become commonplace. When we take them for granted, they become invisible and hence redundant. So, we need new perspectives and vision to speed up growth.
