To many change is one of the most intimidating concepts on the face on the earth. Some people don’t like change, so they avoid it. Others love change and flock towards it. Both have their own independent and valid reasons. This post is meant to highlight the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ of lasting change.
1. Change leads to new results
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” So, switch up your choices and you may get different results.
2. Change is refreshing
Partaking in the same habits everyday and night gets boring. Let change help you mix things up and get energized. Enjoy spending time building new healthy habits.
3. Change causes new relationships
Change leads people to exit their comfort zones. This often puts them in a great position to meet new likeminded individuals. Many friendships start due to some sort of change.
4. Change is necessary
Life would not be what we know it as today without change. The irony is that consistent never-ending change is the only true constant in the universe. As long as the universe exists, so will change.
1. Change is emotionally draining
Anyone who has gone through change knows how many emotions it involves. It causes people to react in ways they otherwise never would have. Change is tiring because of the many different emotions it causes.
2. Change takes effort
Change is never easy. It takes real active effort to cause new results. Positive change hardly ever happens from being passive. Rather it is a result of taking consistent action.
3. Change causes conflict
People resist change all the time. Sometimes change is looked at as a threat to the current powers in place. For that reason change makers must persist through many forms of friction.
4. Change takes time
Rome was not built over night, and neither will your positive habits. Lasting change is developed over time. The time is going to pass anyways, so you might as well make changes and grow.
After weighing ‘the pros and cons’ one can conclude that change is more beneficial than not. Most things worth while take time and effort. These cannot be seen as cons, but rather as conditions of change. Change is a necessary refreshing process which causes new results and relationships.
