People fear change

The fear of change comes so natural to us, and it’s no wonder since it is well embedded in our DNA. This fear followed us during our evolution for thousands of years. Changes, especially rapid ones, mean a greater risk of going extinct. Survival of the fittest is not about being fit but being adaptable to change.

From an evolutionary point of view, changes are the corner stones of our very existence. Without them we would still be single-cell organisms. Change is what transforms us, what shapes us and makes us become better, faster, stronger and smarter if we embrace it.

As everything else, change has both advantages and disadvantages. You can either live in fear and see every change as another obstacle that you need to overcome in order to survive, or you can see it as a chance to evolve and transform yourself into something better.

You can choose to fear change or to embrace it.
