MN Business Tip Of The Day: Is Resistance To Change Keeping You Stagnant?
It’s understandable. We all have issues with change otherwise the phrase, “Humans are creatures of habit” wouldn’t be so well known. But how is your natural resistance to change hurting your career?
Do you have brilliant ideas that never reach fruition or initiatives that go nowhere? These could be examples that your resistance is keeping you from taking steps in a new direction. Perhaps as soon as a great idea pops into your mind it is immediately followed by all the logical reasons it would never work. Is one of the big reasons because it would require a break from the ways things are always done?
You may be doing yourself a disservice by not challenging some of the “old ways.” Of course the wheel doesn’t have to be reinvented every day, but something genius might just unfold from shaking things up and embracing the uncertainty of change. Take the time today to identify your areas of resistance, be honest about why they are there, and take the necessary steps to fix them.
