At one point or another your life will change. This change can be a positive experience because you have grown as a person and have reached another level of success in life, or it can be a change that will ultimately reveal the real you and cause you to grow as a person to enable you to enter into the next season of your life. Nothing in life stays the same – it is not meant to. We all must change and move forward and not become stagnant where we are.
Sometimes life will throw you a curveball that will put you in a position where you have no idea what lies ahead. Curveballs can turn your world upside down or they can enlighten you and bring wisdom to understand the future. The affect curveballs have on your life depends on the choice you make – it’s your choice. You can choose to be safe and not take the risk that comes with change and be happy with things staying exactly the way they are now, or you can embrace change and be open to new experiences and opportunities that will surely come. If you are not a risk taker, you prefer to not rock the boat or should I say you ‘don’t want to fix’ what isn’t broken. If you are a risk taker, you see change as a means to an end. Change to a risk taker is an open door that leads to endless possibilities that will positively impact their destiny. Risk takers believe that they are strong enough and resilient enough to handle whatever happens in the future.
Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed and re-arranged to move us where we are meant to be. We should not fear the curveballs that enter our lives. In fact, curveballs can force us to know who we are and what we can rise above and still come out of it with our personal character and dignity intact. Our life is a reflection of the choices we make and we are accountable for our response to even the events we had no control over. The next time life throws you a curveball, don’t back away from it. Stand in the batter’s box and swing your bat with full confidence that you have made the right choice and see that what was meant to harm you will become the source of your success!
