The other day, I was talking to a friend who is a personal trainer and entrepreneur.
She said, “There are two kinds of people in this world, those who change and those who think about it and don’t do anything.”
I’m not sure I totally agree with that.
I got to thinking, and this is what I came up with.
I believe generally there are three ways most people deal with change:
- Those who seek it out proactively, and prioritize creating and growth.
- Those who avoid change and wait for something to happen. They then respond or react to what comes at them.
But I think there’s a third general category:
3. Those who think about change for a long time and want to be more proactive, but are scared or uncertain, and don’t know if they’ll succeed.
This third group of people, who I tend to identify with, benefits from help, encouragement, love, guidance and a community of others to cheer them on and do it alongside them.
I choose this more compassionate way of looking at change.
What do you think?
