It seems as if everything is out of balance again. At once your temporary hold on control over what you thought was best has dissipated into a permanent frustration. Long before you existed, people have been grappling with the effects of change and the fluid nature of stability. Perhaps, it is why frustration has made every generation stronger than the next as there is a residual hate for complacency and a pursuit for better. The mistake we often make in life is expecting everything to happen seamlessly in our favor. Today, we are being told to embrace change and pivot to find the wins through the disappointments. However, there is still no real solution for the process of appreciating the pain and achieving that new mindset to move forward. Therefore, I have embarked on a journey to understand what are the possible solutions to understanding the culture of change, its effects, and solutions.
I journeyed to the creation of time and the existence of man in the most accurate proof of change there is – the beginning – in the book of Genesis in the bible. Many eons ago the existence of possibility was given to mankind.
In the beginning God created heaven and the earth.
Possibility is the change tool that disrupted the entire lock that non-existence had in place. There was nothing happening until a change was sparked and the creator gave us the key to believe that anything is possible. This change as we now dwell in it (earth) is what fuels our every turn in our individual lives. We have a place to lay our heads on the earth, food to eat from the earth, and the knowledge given to man by God. Everything changed. So today, we are bothered by the disruptions to our plans because we know what is possible.
Even discouragingly, we continue to overcome the challenge because we know it is still possible. The goals for our careers, personal goals, home ownership, travel, and creating generational wealth. What changed? What created the gap? The gap between the effects of the last change holdup we encountered, and our eventual release from being locked into disappointment – the solution. Let’s find out more about the solutions mindset.
By the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Britain, the United States, and other industrialized nations were debating and enacting reform laws to limit some of the worst abuses of the factory system. However, similarly oppressive labor conditions arose in many parts of the world as their economies industrialized in the 20th and 21st centuries. The reorganization of daily life wrought by industrialization had effects that weakened the material basis for the institutions of the family and the community. These effects were so lasting that they can still be felt in the present day—even as developed societies have shifted into an era that scholars describe as “postindustrial.”
Industrialization, Labor, and Life, National Geographic
The industrialization period had critically damaged family life in the hope of getting wages to help alleviate the poverty in that time. Today, modern families are now cementing family structures while being flexible to create generational wealth and live a fulfilling life. What changed? The effects of the industrialization age were swinging more for entrepreneurs and the upper echelons of the economic structure of the nations. Many labour disputes came from that era as workers were being abused and underpaid for their human resource. The price paid by that generation created the change for what we enjoy today as some of the improved working conditions and labour laws. So what’s the price of the change that we are now paying for the next generation? It’s being a more resilient people with a creative and smarter use of our minds to find the solutions to the constant.change we exist in. The product of change is a solution. Otherwise, complacency and stagnant stability would render us ineffective and without room for growth. Change is the cold hearted way of adding fun to your life lest your heart stops from the lack of vitality.
The earth is aging whether you believe it or not. The debate for renewal and climate change is preceded by the facts of the Bible.
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
The principles we are creating today for green technology and reducing carbon emissions will afford the next generation a short window of existence on this earth. We have learned that the effects of the rapid industrialization period and the then lack of protection for the earth gave us great economic growth at a cost. Now, we are changing our behaviour and modeling a path for the next generation to do their part. It’s this change and solution formula that is applied to our own individual paths. We can only see so far but we know it’s still possible to change the desired outcome of our lives. The solutions are possible and after that it’s just a win-win. So what do you say – to change or not to be changed.
