Courage to change

The fear of the new creates the average

(Reading time: 1 - 2 minutes)

Although they’re all unique, they fall into two main categories

There’s the group that has always agreed with me but have never proactively done anything about anything. And the other group is called my clients.


I can’t even begin to tell you how incredibly proud I am of the people in the second group.

Why? Because it’s easier to keep doing what the crowd is doing, it’s safer not to stand out. It’s common to keep talking about the dreams you have forever, and letting the fear of the new hold you back.

But it takes courage to change set ways, to challenge the status quo, and to lead the way.

It’s true what people say – we really don’t know what we don’t know.  We can never improve our lives, create a life balance, achieve happiness or gain a competitive advantage if we’re not open to new ideas and not prepared to do something different.

There are moments when someone questions the way we do things, or even the direction we’re heading in.  And they’ll show us what would clearly be an improvement.  It might even be us, realising this on our own.  But how often do we actually do something about it?  How often do we take the first step and start working to change?

Yes, but … the famous words that justify and defend the status quo – no matter how average it is.  It’s easier to stick with what we’ve got, than to take that first step.

Procrastination is poison.  What a waste.
