Have To Pivot? Be Encouraged!

Have To Pivot? Be Encouraged!

 We all have so many dreams, and we want to do so many things in life. We make plans and then execute them in the hopes that we will achieve our dreams one day; that we will manifest the image that we hold so dearly in our minds. This is truly a remarkable thing. It is what makes us humans. It is what makes you, you.

 But in the course of life, things happen. Things that you just couldn't have foreseen and planned for, things that pull the rug from under your feet. That is just how life is. It is this dynamic thing that can change in an instant. Change, it seems, is woven into the very fabric of reality. It is inevitable, and yet, this is something that nobody likes to talk about. Everybody knows that it is a part of life, but most people are not comfortable even acknowledging it.

 It is this tendency that may come in the way of you and your dreams or may inhibit your ability to walk a different path. You see, sometimes you are left with no option but to change plans or even your dreams! Maybe your plans have become irrelevant due to changes in some variables. Or maybe, you realized that you don't really want what you had thought you wanted. Whatever it is, you may need to improvise and pivot midway. And that is okay!

 Feel Encouraged

Change is mostly met with fear and denial. It is perceived as a disruptor, and that goes against our evolutionary trait of favoring familiarity. But if you can only change your perspective a little bit, you will see change as an opportunity. And when you do that, you feel encouraged instead of feeling fearful.

That is the secret behind some of the most successful people on the planet. They have the remarkable ability to ride the wave of change instead of getting submerged under it. The thing is, you can learn this ability too! All that is needed is a little change in perception and courage.

 When you have to pivot, take that as an opportunity to update your plans taking into consideration new variables that may be at play. You may even need to flush your old plan and come up with an entirely new one! Doing so will ensure that you are not wasting your time on a path that doesn't lead anywhere. It will ensure that you eventually reach your goal. As you can see, it is only the logical thing to do!

So, why fear something that can actually increase your chances of succeeding. Embrace it, and turn it to your advantage. Let it unleash your creativity and inner potential onto the world. Sure, it might be a little scary at first, but you will get over that soon enough. And at the end of the day, you will be all the better for it.
