an excerpt from my forthcoming book Shift Into High Gear 

The only constant is change. This has been accurate for all times. If you understand that, and believe it to be true, it has profound implications for your growth, development, success, 
happiness and well being.

Change is universal, it is the only constant. Change is inevitable, it is certain that things never remain the same, even people change; over time or suddenly; willingly or unwillingly; by external or internal forces; people will change as everything else changes around them.

Every day, at any given time, somewhere, something is changing. It is happening all around us, and it will forever.

However, most people fear and resist change. Why? One of the biggest reasons is that we as humans tend to get comfortable in the way we do things, it's easy for us to get accustomed to our set ways. Even though sometimes maintaining the status quo would be negatively affecting our lives and holding us back. Most of the time, we resist new things, new ideas, new possibilities just because that New Change takes us out of our comfort zone; perhaps it's the loss of a job, moving into a new city, a failed relationship, dealing with a new boss or policy at work, it could be anything, really! Anything that's pushing us out of our comfort zone.

Most people have difficulty adjusting because they are basically uncomfortable. Yet, both personal and professional growth at some level, need and depend on change.

Change is inevitable, but personal growth is a choice. – Bob Proctor
