The Strength to Change

Henry Ford didn’t invent the automobile. He changed the way they were made while making them affordable to the very people who made them.

The Beatles didn’t create music, instead they created a revolution hid inside four hair cuts and three chords.

Walt Disney didn’t just create a Mouse. He fostered a magical place where adults could be kids, and kids could dream. This place wasn’t called Disneyland, it was called imagination. All three examples have something in common: Each had the strength to change. A driving passion to move them forward.

Change is hard. Sometimes it consumes you. Sometimes it rewards you. Sometimes it drags you down the hall kicking and screaming while you yearn for days gone by. Whatever the reason, one should never fear change. I say embrace it (I know, easier said than done).

Isn’t facing change, really facing fear? I’ve been taught the way to face your fears is to tackle them head on, and if you do, the fear is never as big as once thought (I’ll let you know when I’m able to live up to these words). I know the strength to change sometimes is hard to come by, but know there’s a support group of family and friends that will help you through. I understand that now.

I heard a quote somewhere that I’d love to print up on a t-shirt. The quote is: “If you hate change, you’ll like irrelevancy even less.” I would think 10 out of 10 people would think Henry Ford, The Beatles and Walt Disney are far from irrelevant.

    Yes. Yes. And Yes. “If you hate change, you’ll like irrelevancy even less.” Well written and, of course, you know that I can relate.
