Rapid-fire change, also known as chaos, is a state of constant change.  You are consistently in flux.  This is a symptom of dissatisfaction, or dissatisfaction around you.  Children are familiar with this, especially if their parents are armed forces personnel, going through divorce, or are in trouble.  This kind of chaos is destructive if unchecked.  We all need a little stability and structure to stay healthy.  A state of constant change is anything but structured and stable.  And so:  Constant Change = Constant Stress.

First, look at your situation.  Are your circumstances traumatic or potentially so?  If the answer to that question is “Yes”, then you need to stop reading and call for some help.  Now.  Right now.  Call the police and/or a therapist.  Be honest.  Want to make a perception shift for stability.  If the answer is “No”, then we may continue on to the next question: What are you running from? Because (are you ready for this?):

You are the cause and effect of everything in your life.

We know this is harsh, but it’s absolutely true, liberating and empowering.  So if you are going through life like a channel surfer (click…click…click), then what are you running from or to?  What are you looking for?  Actually ask yourself these questions.  You need to establish what you expect to gain from zipping to and fro, weaving in and out of experiences.

As soon as you have established your goal, then accept it, confront it and just allow it.  Stop running.  Stay in your lane.  You’ll get there and the journey will be so much more enjoyable.  Let things settle down for you.  And chances are, the circumstances and people surrounding you will change according to your behavior and thought processes.

After all, shouldn’t the journey be enjoyable?  Has changing every two hours, two days, two weeks or two months brought you happiness?  Maybe.  If not, if you are ready to stop and look at where you’re at, then look at why you are running and trying to change all the time.  Chances are that you’ll arrive at your goal in better time and happier.

We have a strong desire to see you fly.  Everyone is capable of being great.  Don’t let you or anyone else tell you that you that you can’t be great.  We hope that this article has moved you closer to greatness.  Please leave a comment telling us your wildest dreams.

About Nathan

Hi! I am Nathan! So why am I here? That is my main question. I am fascinated by the current wave of science meeting with the philosophical questions throughout history. I am a Taoist and a disorganized dreamer who makes up new words to describe states of being and thought processes. I love to bring to you these simple yet powerful little inspirations and truths. I believe that each one of us is infinitely important and we are all connected. As Carl Sagan put it, “We are a way for the Cosmos to know itself.” We might be all connected, but you are still you. It is your perceptions that shape your reality. So join me in changing perceptions!
