It’s Day 3 of the three days, three quotes challenge. Thank you so much My Li’l Place for this nomination. Sharing my insights and story with others was fun.
This challenge inspired me to write – Three Quotes that will Change your Life. You can read the second quote here.
Here’s the 3rd quote:
Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. – Robin Sharma
Imagine your first day on the job. You’re trying to understand the different policies and procedures of the company. You’re getting introduced to different people – of course, you can’t remember all of their names. You come to work every day struggling to learn everything about your job. You’re afraid to make mistakes; you don’t want your boss to think you’re incompetent. Then, BOOM – new procedures and more changes. How can you cope with all these?
Change is hard at first. Resisting the change will not help you at all. You have to learn how to adapt and develop your skills. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
Will it be gorgeous at the end? Let’s be realistic. You might turn out to be really good at what you’re doing, you’ll climb the corporate ladder or become “The Specialist” of your field. That would be gorgeous! Right?
Or maybe you’ll end up hating your job, and decide to switch careers. You have learned something from this experience. That to me is still a beautiful ending!
And yes, you will be more prepared for new beginnings.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you’re more inspired to embrace the changes in your life. Do you have any other inspiring quotes to share? Let me know in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you.
