Who Moved My Cheese? Summary
We all strive towards outcomes at work, at home and in our communities because we believe they will make us (or those we love) happy.
It might be a good job, a loving relationship, money or possessions. It might be better health or spiritual peace of mind.
And it can feel wonderful when we eventually get them. Those things become cornerstones in our best-laid plans for the future.
Yet life is constantly changing and sometimes it blocks (or even undoes) things we expect, feel we deserve or have worked so long and so hard to accomplish.
But because we fear starting again, looking foolish or that we might end up somewhere worse, we often don’t want to change when things begin changing around us.
We deny change has arrived or was coming. We get frustrated and start to blame others. We cling to what was, instead of what simply now is.
And the more important whatever’s-at-risk feels, the more desperately we try to hold on.
We seethe with impotent stress and vexation. We think more about what could go wrong than go right. We let our fears grow out of control then control us.
But the fact is, like it or otherwise, that the world is constantly changing. And while not all change is good or necessary it always creates new opportunities, whether we recognize them immediately or not.
That’s why it’s important to learn how to deal with change. That’s why it pays to learn how to adapt to new circumstances.
How to Enjoy Change
When change happens, the first thing to realize is that how you react is your choice. The biggest barrier to change is inside you.
The second thing to realize is that the best way to deal with change is to keep things simple, be flexible and move quickly. When change comes along simply change with it.
“Where am I likely to find the best opportunities, fighting this change or embracing it?”
“What could my life look like if these new circumstances led to something even better than the ones that I’m leaving?” and
”What would I do if I wasn’t afraid I might fail?”
Really reflect on your answers.
Visualize them till the details are almost tangible in your head; until you change what you used to believe.
Realize that most of your fears are irrational. Laugh at your previous folly. Let it go.
Then take action – make things happen rather than letting things happen to you. Take control – even if you worry you’ve waited too long.
Recognize that sometimes things change and they are never the same again. And if this is one of those times, that’s life!
Life moves on and if you don’t want to risk going extinct, so must you.
