We live in an era of social and political changes that are both cause and effect of a state of astonishment, uncertainty and insecurity among people. At their origin are fears about the future of the economy and employment in a context of accelerated technological progress, in addition to the ecological crisis, migrations and the constant flow of information that, between truths and lies, unscrupulously play with our emotional stability
From a psychological perspective, most of us like to have our lives under control and without excessive shocks, the more predictable the better; but the reality is that new environments and situations force us to use unknown strategies and models, giving way to our fears and insecurities. They are environments in which we are forced to acquire new learning and break with deep-rooted habits that are difficult to transform, and it is precisely there where the fear of change can cause opportunities for growth and learning to pass us by without us being able to see them
It is necessary to take into account that fear is one of the primary emotions of the human being, a mechanism that helps us when we find ourselves in dangerous situations. Any change, in whatever field, makes us feel fear or insecurity and it is something innate in human beings. The problem appears when that fear invades us in such a way that it controls us and does not let us move forward or face new challenges: that harmful mixture of fear of failure, of not being up to the new demands and of being criticized by others, so it is important to clarify that the fight is not to overcome fear but to move forward despite it, because fear will always appear. Our challenge then, is not to let it paralyze us, to control our nerves and move forward; although it is hard to see it and easier said than done, change should be seen as an opportunity and not as a threat, it all depends on the attitude and the perception we have before the new situations and environments that are presented to us
Change is evolution, it is part of the process of life; all the time we are changing skin and tissues of our vital organs, so why not accept the different as an opportunity for progress.
The essence of change is to improve, to seek alternatives that contribute to our better quality of life, to nurture our environment, to positively transform multiple aspects of our daily lives. Seen from this perspective, change becomes a step of infinite possibilities for growth. However, for this step to effectively leverage our existence, it is imperative to expand our capacity for effective action and open ourselves to new ways of thinking, feeling and acting about our relationship with ourselves, with others, with the country, with the world and with life.
To achieve this and without fear of being wrong, continuous training is key, as well as curiosity (the movement) to explore new scenarios and it is a privilege that these ingredients are a reality for all of us who make up the PersonalSoft community, so I am convinced that we are prepared for the challenges posed by the environment or at least, that should be our ATTITUDE, perhaps the most important part of all and my fundamental invitation as a pioneer of our PERSONALBLOG … Which I hope will be a space to challenge us, know us, read us, share us and overcome our own fears.
