Love this blog by Filiz Mehmedova - change is something to embrace or endure, some people enjoy change so much, they seek it out. What you can't do is resist change. As Filiz writes:
'Change is a constant, ongoing process in our lives. We should try to accept change as it is, not fight to resist it'.
When talking to business leaders about social selling and modern selling, it surprises me how many are hanging on to the past - resisting change. Worryingly, many CEOs still refuse to accept that social media is something they need to add to their commercial strategy.
It's similar with when we talk and post content about prospecting on social media - the 'cold calling resistance' will dig their heels in and insist that endlessly chasing someone on the phone is still a viable way to get meetings and sell.
The blog tells us we can't ignore change and that's good for business. If a competitor is hanging on to old fashioned methods and you have your team social selling - that's a huge advantage.

Old ideas no longer serve you well if you want to succeed in life. Things that were popular yesterday, may not be feasible today. That is especially significant if you want to develop in your career, grow your business and have more successful relationships. Each change in your life is like closing one chapter and opening a different one. It is also like living in the moment and trying to embrace the new stuff instead of dwelling in the past.
