Humans are custom built for change. And to change does not always mean you have to become someone else. It means adding on or adjusting something that already exists. Folks who go around boasting on how they can’t change end up in chains. You can recognize a man who is not accustomed to change by his level of ignorance. He has long arms that pats himself on the back when he’s being reproached for wrong or biased judgment.

Resisting change has its own revenge. Change is life. At any time, at any age, we can change. When we refuse to change our opinion or give room to fresh perspectives, we end up like concrete – all mixed together and permanently set.

Postpone your resistance to change for these three reasons.

. The Past Would Become The Future

Oftentimes difficult situations happen in life to set us straight. But, when we fail to learn the lesson behind every difficult situation, we set ourselves up for a replay. Lessons in life tend to repeat itself when we fail to learn and change our perspectives. Men who do not learn from their past, break up their future. People who don’t learn from their blunders don’t grow.


Only individuals who are adapted to change will seize the many opportunities that life presents to them.

There’s always a way out. But those who fail to learn will never see a way out. The sentiment that the past can become the future aspires to common sense. It is hard to disagree with. In the history of mankind, conflicts are resolved when the other surrenders to a fresh perspective. Every individual who fails to accept change ends up as a failure. We are all subject to this advice.

You end up in chains when your future becomes your past.

. Your Future Gets Stuck

The sooner we stop making our past our future, the easier it will be to see our future. You would agree with me that the future sometimes appears slim. But, you can begin to understand that it’s through failure that we truly learn to achieve success. Be careful how you talk to yourself. Whether you like it or not, you are listening and what you hear will determine if your future gets stuck or gets moving.

You might be convinced to keep doing what you’ve been doing. After all, no said the change was going to be easy. Please don’t. If you keep doing that, you’re creating more problems for your future self.

Quit allowing the way you do things in the past interfere with the opportunities of today. One of the reasons yesterday was created by God is to prepare us, and teach us how to respond to future occurrences. The past isn’t meant to make our future stuck. It only happens when we fail to change.

. You Stop Learning

Change is hard, I know.
You can choose to change with the times, and take advantage of new opportunities. Or you can fight the changes, and patiently watch your life perish.

It is more expensive to keep doing the same thing over and over again. The result will always be the same and you will never grow beyond your limits. Learn to adjust yourself to change and be quick to correct what isn’t working in your life and around you.

You can adapt to win by learning or you can adapt to fail by refusing to learn.
The world is changing every minute, channeling new opportunities to our directions. Only individuals who are adapted to change will seize the many opportunities that life presents to them.

Are you one of them? Are you open to positive changes? Or are you willing to remain in chains?
