If there is anything we can be certain of in life it is change and we must be prepared to deal with the power of change when it happens. Typically, people have a difficult time making needed changes in their life until they are forced to do so. Our country and our worldwide community is involved in an economic crisis that has an effect on us all, and in some way we are being forced to make changes in our lives whether we like it or not. For many individuals and families the changes may be devastating while others will experience growth and prosperity.
A crisis has the effect of pulling the rug out from under us and the feeling associated with it is equivalent to the feeling of falling. At such times adjustments can be broken down and people tend to grab at straws as a way of trying to maintain stability. Eventually we tend to fall back on our customary ways of coping with stress, make new adjustments and get on with life. Our adjustments can be either positive or negative but, one way or the other, change is going to occur.
Many people have been fortunate enough to be in a position to weather the economic crisis and experience positive change and prosperity in their lives. Even positive change and growth is not without some loss and there is often a downside to be dealt with as change is not without its losses. When success brings change rapidly and monumentally many individuals may be unprepared to cope. History is littered with the bodies of those who have crashed and burned on their journey to the top. Even when we are comfortable with success in our lives, our success may separate us from family and friends who, for whatever reason, have taken another path or been unable to keep up. While they may react with anger, frustration and resentment, we may feel a sense of grief and guilt that we could not take them with us. In truth, change can open up a whole new can of worms.
Many of us who are familiar with the Law of Attraction know that it is always working in our lives. We must not only attract success to ourselves but also recognize it and accept it when it arrives. In order to accept success and fully benefit from the changes it brings to our lives, we must be prepared to cope with the power of change and the consequences that follow.
