Most of us like to play it safe in life. We would rather stay in our cocoons than take the risk of going out there and working on our personal growth. We all do not like uncertainness; we would rather have little or live with the average that we have than taking chances of having more which by the way is achieved by taking risks.
It is understandable to be afraid of change because we are not sure whether things will be better or worse. It is the fear of the unknown that prevents us for achieving self development. Brace up for change, because it will always be there and it is inevitable. Change the way you perceive things and people. What worked some years back may not necessarily work today. Do not let lag behind and stagnate because of fear. Move with the times and you will achieve success.
Refuse to procrastinate and embrace the adventure of change. Actually change is like a rest. Though we should be cautious of being conformed to who we are not and lose our self identity in the process, we should also give chance to the idea of changing to improve our self image thus our self identity.
Do not give in to the fear of disappointment. Many are the times that we want to change and become better but we are afraid of not making it and getting frustrated because we did not get where we wanted. Failure is not permanent; if you failed today it does not mean that you will still fail tomorrow. Change to what is good and relevant to you and in the process you will have self esteem and thus improve your self image.
