Change is essential for growth.
“Nothing changes if nothing changes” ~ Unknown
Change is defined as “the act or instance of making or becoming different”.
Each day, each month, each year if we continue doing the same thing, there is no chance for growth. Quoting the genius Einstein who said,”The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”.
We need to take action, change what is not working & do more of or seek out what is working to see progress & growth in life.Same it is with our resolutions for the year. If something did not work last year (or earlier) you have the power to change it (this year or now), coz NOTHING CHANGES if nothing changes.
Change ultimately helps us learn new skills, explore new opportunities and exercise creativity in ways that we never knew we had, thus growing us as a person. Be open for change, that is the only way to grow and move forward in life.
Here are some links to my posts on New Year and Motivational Quotes on New Year Resolutions (#JanuaryQuotes) for your interest :
You’re absolutely right, Maya. If we don’t initiate it change will never happen. I hope to become more organized, although often the more I try to organize my surroundings, the creative muse eludes me. It’s a challenge because the more time one spends organizing, the less time she has to become more creative and productive. Thanks for this excellent topic to ponder.
Thank you, Catherine for stopping by my blog and sharing your thoughts, I so appreciate it. There are days when my creative muse takes over & I let it lead me, coz at that time I am at my best with productivity, getting distracted with something around me would stop my flow.Then, there are other days when my creative juices are not on such high gear, that’s when I finish up all the time blocking I had done on my calendar in one go.I believe, there is no “one fixed way” to do things, change is inevitable.Whatever works for you, do it.As long as we are moving forward in the right direction, things fall into place sometimes fast sometimes slow. Nothing changes if nothing changes, so getting started is the main thing, the pace does not matter in the long run, how we finish does.Glad you found this topic interesting, I realized some of us are so stuck in a goal or a new year resolution (that is not working) that we keep beating at the same thing again & again till we invariably get bored & quit, instead if we could “Change” it to something we enjoy doing yet gets the same results, why not try that instead?For eg: I enjoy nature walks more than being stuck on a tread mill, so I do more of what I love, the end goal being the same, of staying fit (change for me here, meant walking away from the tread mill that others enjoyed but I didn’t.Had I continued, I’d have quit, invariably ). My nature walks not only keep me fit but I so enjoy the pleasures of learning about different birds and the flowering plants that grow in our area, so change is good for our own personal growth!
