The Difficulties And Joys Of Change

Change can be a difficult thing. Most people want to change their lives, in some way, but find it difficult to either get started or to sustain the change for very long.

It can be incredibly difficult, or it can be wonderfully joyous.

The Elements of Change

  • Beating inertia (resistance to change): Pick the middle ground between no change and drastic change.
  • Beating the resistance of others: Ask for their help and get them on your side, or negotiate a way for you to make change without disrupting their lives too much.
  • Finding the joy and keeping it alive: Doing something you hate is possible, for a little while, but you’ll never sustain it.
  • Celebrating the little victories: Every step along the path is a victory.
  • Making it a part of your life: To integrate change into your life, it must become a part of your daily routine.

Failure is an inevitable part of change

And if you already know it will happen, then there’s no pressure to avoid it.

Fail, fail often, and learn. Then you’ll be better equipped for the next attempt.

Shunryu Suzuki

"Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer."
