It is impossible to say that the founder is entirely content with the status quo. If they were, they wouldn’t have gone to all the effort to disrupt their industry while still living the same life. It is difficult to shake that comfort in your life and business.
All changes aren’t necessarily complex. We make minor changes all the time, and many don’t merit a second thought or lost sleep. We are not inclined to make or want to avoid big and significant changes. We love the comfort that we have in our current circumstances. This familiarity helps us get through difficult times. However, while change can be good and beneficial, it can also make things worse.
So we delay or avoid changes, sometimes to the detriment of our health. Although you may want to preserve things as they are, life and the universe don’t care about your desire for change. Change is certain, regardless of whether or not we wish it. We have the power to choose how we respond to these changes. It’s that adage, and it’s not the crisis/mistake/challenge; it’s your responsibility.
Others might want to go back to the original way of doing things and set up their business the same way they did before. But that’s impossible. Nothing is as it was. And even if it could be, is that what it wants? The past is often portrayed in a way that it doesn’t merit. We tend to forget about the strain and successes and focus on the positive. All was perfect. If we had been allowed to live in the moment forever, our lives and work would have been easy, joyful, and straightforward.
It doesn’t matter what we think, but the reality is that things are changing. Perhaps that change is more complicated than we might like to face, but it’s not impossible to stop it. No past generation of entrepreneurs enjoyed a business environment where nothing was altered or changed for years. Change is part of human life. We can’t short-circuit it.
We can only control our reactions to alter. Instead of being bitter about what happened, we can accept that we are all affected by outside forces and be content with making the best of what we have control over. Even though things may not have gone our way, it isn’t impossible to be happy with the outcome. It’s also possible that others will experience worse luck than us. Recognizing when we are blessed, or fortunate is essential, but not assuming it to be merit. It is possible that our future circumstances could see us fall from the high vantage points we have set for ourselves.
Change offers us the chance to think differently and adapt to new situations. One example of this is the pandemic. It has had a acute impact on the way most businesses work. It would not be possible to call it a chance, but it shows that many companies can adapt, even though many have lost their livelihoods or lives.
Nevertheless, we must learn to accept change and move on from the past. It is difficult to find the correct level between thinking lessons and mental chastising for your mistakes. #onwards is my mantra. It means not to get caught up in the past. Moving forward, however, requires me to be open to change and flexible to survive.
Change offers us the chance to examine who we are. Are we going to stay in the past, holding on to what our business was, or will we move forward? The people who want to learn more, understand the market, and push to become better are more likely to accept that setbacks and failures are not causes to be angry about the world. life changes, and the sooner we embrace that fact, the sooner entrepreneurs and individuals realize their potential. #onwards
