Change: to cause to become different, alter, convert; to pass from one phase to another.
And just as the weather changes day by day, minute by minute, we too must be ready to change. We have no choice. Whether we are ready or not, we must be agile, resourceful, and resilient. For some of us, life may have been calm feeling less wind for the past years but recently more of us have felt the turbulence of the winds. And it has been rough waters as the wind has picked up speed and changed many of our sails.
Now is the time to take inventory of our strengths and figure out what skills and talents we possess. What do we want for our future. Maybe our sails need to focus in a different direction. Now is the time to know ourselves. It’s a journey that when we know ourselves, we can feel more comfortable taking risks and inevitably end up more successful.
Remember that “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” -Chinese proverb
Are you ready to take that step? Do you want to stop feeling complacent and do something about it? Only you know the answer. This is real life. There will never be a perfect time to make that change. Not after that debt is paid or when your child finishes high school or even when you finish that project you have been working on for years.
You determine that path. You take control. You decide.
