Change can be wonderful once we take the plunge. It’s not so scary after all! I think it causes us to lose our fear quickly and pushes us forward into something new and gets us out of our box, but we have to make the move, right?
Last week I talked about looking honestly at the man in the mirror as the first step toward positive change. “Man in the Mirror” is the theme of our upcoming Phenix Family Reunion, June 1 – 3, at the Paris Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
We see mirrors all the time and we should pause occasionally and peer deeply. That’s not as easy as it might sound. We may want to see something that isn’t there, or we find something we don’t like … we find something we want to change, and that is the first step.
What we do with that self-reflection, though, is just as important, if not more so, than the self-reflection itself. We’ve got to make the change happen. It may take some bravery, and I repeat myself in saying that I think we grow when we push out of our box. Often, then, we won’t be so scared to maybe try new things in the future. Change can be so fun and adventurous, and it can give us more nerve to try new things. It can build our confidence.
As Phenix stylists, we’ve already made a big change. Lots of us decided to be self-employed: owning, operating, decorating our private suites, setting our own hours, keeping more of what we earn.
