Accepting change and its impacts

It has been quite often seen that people resist change very stubbornly, even when its for their own benefit. The main reason being that change generally provokes physiological discomfort. Change is something that pressurizes us out of our comfort zone. That is the reason why all of us are a little hesitant towards it.

So, how well does one agree to this famous quote by Charles Darwin - "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."Agreed! One important reason why we should change is because it helps to reduce monotony in life. Change the way you think, change you wardrobe, change you room settings and see the impact it will have on you. When you change something at the onset, you might feel bad about it but gradually you start accepting the change and hence start adoring it. For instance the other day when I was asked to change my seating place in office I felt a little repressive about it but gradually with the advent of time I became quite comfortable. So perceive change as an important aspect of life. Many a times we don’t accept change because we don’t want to be out of our comfort zone. We should recognize change as boon.

Change does bring us out of our comfort zone because with change comes the need to grow and hence adapt. Recognizing change helps us have a sense of rising and hence allows us face the challenge of life. It increases our confidence and builds our ability to deal with whatever life tosses our way. Change helps us to be at our best. Resisting change is constrictive and deadens energy. So, always change for the good and feel the difference in your life.

I do agree that change is beneficial but not always.The change should be like a positive rays in your life not shreds depression in your life.More precisely i should say that it should make life more exiting and not dull..Best example is how 2nd floor looks :(

Changes do have an immense impact. The thing is how well does it go down your spine. But one thing, which I feel, is changes always let us explore the unknowns, which maybe we may not even dream of. So, accept the change if you are comfortable with it and if you are unable to change the Change then change the perception or paradigm of seeing the change.
