Dealing with Change

I’ve been through so many changes over the last decade I’m no longer sure what day it is.

I’ve lived in Florida, Doha (twice), UK, Chengdu China, Abu Dhabi and Almaty Kazakhstan. Ten jobs, two wives and lots or gorgeous friends!

So when I saw this I had to share…

How do you deal with change?

Most people hate change. Look at the worldwide uproar every time
Facebook or Empire Avenue do a little format change.

Here’s the interesting fact: If a change is seen as an ending, we
usually hate it.  (Losing a job, a program ends or even death.)
When change is viewed as a beginning, we usually like it.  (Getting
a new job, discovering a new restaurant, having a baby.)

But here’s the fascinating thing about that interesting fact…

In reality, EVERY change offers both an ending and a new beginning.
It is your view of the world – your perspective – that determines
whether or not you see that.

I was so depressed when the tax authorities seized my business.
But if that didn’t happen, I would still be slaving 14 hours a day
in a dead-end restaurant.  And I can truly say that about every
“bad” change that happened to me.

And so can you.

Just some of you don’t know it yet. But it’s true. Every change and
every challenge offers an opportunity…

If you’re looking for it.  Are you?

I have been a teacher all my life. That doesn't just mean in School! I taught my brothers to ride bikes and go camping in the mountains. I taught Football, Cricket, Squash, Sailing, Climbing and Karate. In BNI I became the Education Coordinator. With my Property Business I laid on Investment Seminars. I taught my sons to Fish for Carp. And I still teach Maths and Physics to students who want to go to University to study Medicine or Engineering. Now I am teaching people the things I am learning online.
