We are ready to live in a familiar environment, even if it does not satisfy us. We often tickle our imagination with dreams about changing our job or city, but we hope that it will not happen tomorrow. Why should we be afraid of change and when we can learn how to benefit from it?
Change does not happen by itself.
Humans are designed so that fundamental changes in life are very frightening. After all, life is much calmer if you have a permanent job, stable income, and if no global changes in your job are expected.
But growth is not possible without change. Therefore we must learn to make change our friend. Acceptance is the first step towards making change comfortable.
Tips for those who are afraid of change
Define a specific goal for yourself
When a person is motivated and goes to a certain goal, he is not afraid of any changes. It is important to understand what you really want, then all life’s fears will seem ridiculous.
Act more and think less
When changes occur in your life, it is necessary to begin to act, then there will be simply no time to think and there will be no place for fears.
Try to leave as little time as possible before the start of a decisive step, and you will not have time to think – you will have no choice but to act.
Attract your environment
Let your family and friends know about the changes in your life. Then they will be able to support you with a kind word and help, and they will not let you forget about the ultimate goal.
Track the process of your development
If you really will set quite achievable goals and strive for their implementation, then you just need to monitor the development process. To do this, it is recommended to keep something like a diary to note what was planned, what was the result and what prevented you to achieve the desired result.
This develops the ability of self-reflection, that helps you notice and state your mistake and identify the cause and solution. This reflection is always a powerful tool for self-development.
Take your failures right
It is quite natural to fail. It’s important not to give up, and to perceive any failure as your own valuable experience. You need to take your own failures as an opportunity to avoid such mistakes in the future.
Throw away unnecessary fears
Fear is born of the unknown but any unknown doesn’t stay that way permanently. You can expand your knowledge by asking more experienced people who faced such changes.
At the new job, you can find well-disposed colleagues who will teach you to overcome the initial difficulties. In general, it’s easy to find the necessary information, which means that the uncertainty will not be so scary.

As you know, it is changes that help us to improve in any area of life. Do not treat changes as something good or something bad, and understand that change is inevitable, as change of seasons. It is better to treat them as a chance to change yourself and your life.
