People who do not design a blueprint for their life pretty much have made the decision to accept anything that comes their way. This is not controlling the direction of change in your life. You must know what you want to accomplish in networking if you are ever going to recognize it when it shows up. Not knowing causes lots of missed opportunities. Establish priorities and be willing to change or upgrade the best ideas so you can continue moving forward.
The only thing constant is change. Think about it. Change occurs minute by minute. Change occurs and we are surprised.
Since I began networking many years ago. . . networking has changed. I believe that is a good thing. It’s important to keep up with change. I resisted changing some of my strategies by ignoring Facebook for many months. Parts of my business tripled once I accepted that networking via social media might just work.
“I wanted to change the world. But I have found that the only thing one can be sure of changing is oneself.” ~ Aldous Huxley
Life for the masses is a continuous process of getting used to things we hadn’t expected. Expect change. Change is inevitable. Never will we become so sophisticated that we are above the need for change. From change springs opportunity, growth, and achievement. Change will nurture you when you let it.
Accept change! When you learn to manage change, you begin to control the progress you make in your life. It takes courage, effort and patience to change the old way of living to the new way. Change allows us to experience our lives fully.
Trust yourself that you have chosen the best path and trust in a Higher Power for guidance. You will find fulfillment and satisfaction in the acceptance of change.
Embrace change! Don’t resist it. Be excited about the changes that occur in your life. Learn from them. If you think you do not have a choice in managing change, think again.
Highlight this next sentence. You do have a choice in the matter. Your greatest power is choice. You can choose to set business networking goals or you can choose not to set goals.
Whether you consciously set goals or not, you set goals. When you think, what comes from your thinking, in essence, is a goal and that goal becomes reality. You get what you think about most of the time.
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
