Changes can make you feel excited
Do you know the feeling, when you just got a new photo camera? How excited you are to try the new awesome features?
When was the last time you booked vacation? How did it feel the closer your time-off came?
And imagine, you applied for interesting positions for some time and suddenly you have the great chance to start a new job. This Job-Opportunity is actually exactly what you were looking for.
Remember the feeling you had in each situation during the first days, weeks or even months. Keep this feeling on your mind and think about this:
What do these situations have in common? Of course, depending on your personality, you are living each situation differently, but there is still something that all cases share (beside the great feeling of anticipation on your mind and the energy behind). I see in the situations from the beginning: New Opportunities, Chances, Innovation and Change. Of course, the glass is half full of possibilities to enrich your life. The other half is filled by Opportunities you do not yet see. The glass is not half empty, nor half full, technically seen is the glass even completely full.
Developing the Pioneer of your Life
Remember the feeling from the beginning, when you got our new job. Connect it to the chances of change. Also if a new way might be worse than the old way, at least you have proven it. This experience will help you in the future. Trying new ways causes the feeling to be the pioneer of your life.
No Change, no Progress
I think that change has the amazing power to motivate you and to create new, incredible chances and innovations. Even if the innovation only increases the efficiency of your daily life or work processes. How is the difference in how you work, if you either work in routine, day by day, or try to change and optimize the processes you do every now and then? What is the difference in how you feel at work? Does it influence your results? Imagine what you could do with the time you won by the Optimization.
Changes are often seen as something bad that breaks the routine or something that interrupts standard processes. I see changes more as Opportunities to enhance processes under the Perspective of Efficiency (benefit in time), Effectiveness (benefit in input Material), Output Quality or Future Learning. You can adopt this to everything you do in your life. It is up to you to take that chance as long as you have it. If you do not take it, someone else might or it might be simply too late. Be brave, be a Pioneer!
Try to change at least a little thing each day. Feel the power of change. How does it feel? Great, right? Be brave enough to enhance your life.
