Life Will Never Be The Same, Or Will It?

“Life will never be the same”

How many times have you heard that over the past few weeks?

A declaration delivered with such confidence, followed by a somewhat guilt-ridden “I don’t want to go back to the way it was, I am loving the quieter life and slower pace”.

But then Covid-19 yanked our handbrake and created time for us to experience life differently but to assume life will never be the same is to under estimate market forces also pressing for change; change of a different kind.

Mahatma Ghandi famously said “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

If you can’t see the change, you can’t create it. If you can’t put language around it, you can’t share it. If you can’t acknowledge past choices, you lack the fundamental prerequisite for making new choices. You want change? It’s time to get conscious.

This is the reality:

  • Big business has losses to recoup and shareholders to please.

  • Marketing teams need to cash in on consumer compassion.

  • Individuals with shares, property portfolios and super funds will push to gain ground.

  • And in the not too distant future, Government will need to adjust the financial ledger.

Choosing to change begins with acknowledging that external forces will play havoc with your personal plans unless you consciously choose otherwise.

When a business fails or a relationship disintegrates, we look to the external world for answers. But in looking outwards, we’re only assessing and analysing half of the forces responsible for creating havoc with our plans.

Why has this gone unnoticed?

Our education system failed to equip us with knowledge about the human operating system.

  • We have little knowledge of internal methods for processing our external world.

  • We learn formulas to solve complex mathematical problems when we could be using a similar methodology to uncover and explore the complexity of how we add meaning to experiences.

  • We’ve been linguistically lazy, allowing our brain to be trained in ways that pulls us down rather than drives us forward.

  • We value creativity and innovation in the external world, but not where it counts most… the individual joy of creating a life we consciously choose.

  • And along the way we develop the view that the values, beliefs and life we were given is the one we deserve.

If you want lasting change, it’s your turn to choose it. Make a commitment to get fully equipped to thrive in this increasingly complex and chaotic world.

Make a pact to discover:

  • What happens when our external world collides with our internal world?

  • How we internally process the complexity of life.

  • What do we make stuff mean?

  • What actually influences our choices?

  • And how does it impact our experience of life?
