For the past few months, while I was engaged in translating a book, I came across this idea of change with regard to the success in the corporate world. In that book, the author, a successful Sri Lankan industrialist and philanthropist, tells that it is necessary for a company to change if they are to achieve success in the corporate world and continue to hold on to that success. However, he also advises the change a company is going to accept should be one that takes it to a better position not one that makes it lose the position it already has.
I understood what he was speaking about. At the same time, my mind went more to the side of changes in personal life. If life is a treasure, we should know how to use it aptly. Otherwise, we would end up spending our life without achieving anything especially because we are afraid to change.
Why Change is Necessary?
Change guarantees the success of a business. In the same manner, it guarantees the success of personal life. Sometimes, when things do not happen the way we want it to happen or sometimes because things do happen the way we want it to happen, we need to change to adapt to the situation. For example, if you have been yearning to go to a university once you get the opportunity you should not say you cannot go because of the hazing. Most of the time, there are ways to escape such grim practices. Only if the situation is too unbearable and dangerous should you decide to quit. However, deciding to protest against the change will just take everyone else forward while you stay in the same spot.
Choosing the Right Kind of Change
However, even though change is a good thing, choosing the right kind of change is very important. For instance, think that you want to be a better writer. However, while you are searching for ways to become one someone comes and tells you if you shave your head you can become a better writer. Shaving a head and writing does not have any connection. Therefore, you should be smart enough to understand that is not the kind of change you are looking for. You should be looking for a mentor or a group of readers who can help you improve your writing.
By the way, this change does not only apply to your personal life decisions . If affects to every decision you make as a person, as a professional and even as a citizen. Therefore, at any situation, try to choose the right kind of change that will do good.
