NO PAIN; NO CHANGE
People change when the pain of changing is LESS than the pain of keeping the status quo. The fact is everyone is changing all the time. But many of us like to settle in and get comfortable. We find our place, our niche our warm and fuzzy place and we don’t want to be moved.
In my prior occupation as a church minister, we sang a hymn that said, “I shall not be moved.” That was truer about attitudes and complacency than it was anything religious. I don’t know anyone who likes change except a wet baby… and some of them hate the process.
We fight change. We deny it. We want everyone ELSE to change; not us. Sometimes it is inevitable… it HAS to happen, but we still want to keep everything the way it is. We like to stay in our comfort zone.
People will change every time when it hurts more to NOT change... When the comfort is better in the new position than the present one we are ready to change.
