Here’s a summary of the book that SADER Unipro has prepared for you to inspire you while saving time!

Summary

All humans somehow look for the same things in life. Usually it’s around getting a good education, have a good job, make money and have a loving relationship. We all work really hard to achieve those things and feel satisfied once we do. However, as life is constantly changing, sometimes the circumstances make it hard to achieve certain things that we want out of life. Although sometimes it looks like life is making it hard to achieve our goals, we often don’t accept the change around us and that is because we fear starting again from scratch. We adhere to the past rather than the present and think more of what could go wrong rather than right. However, life is constantly changing and although it disrupts our plans, it creates room for new opportunities.

Learn how to deal with change

You will never be ready enough for change as change happens without prior notice. However, the most important thing is that you realize that how you react to the current change is your choice. Therefore, your biggest challenge is dealing with the change inside you rather around you. Ask yourself the following questions:

- “Where am I likely to find the best opportunities, should I be fighting this change or embracing it?”

- “What could my life look like if these new circumstances led to something even better than the ones that I’m leaving behind?”

- “What would I do if I wasn’t afraid of failing?”

It is important that you realize that the fears inside you are usually irrational in times of change. Take control, don’t let it take control of you! Life goes on, time does not stand still nor does it wait for anyone, try to adapt to the change and you’ll see that it will serve you good.

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes

It is absolutely normal that you are likely to make mistakes. There is no reaching a goal without mistakes being committed first, as long as you learn from your previous mistakes, mistakes are vital. Most importantly, anticipate change at all times, if you live in denial thinking that change will never take place, you are most likely to get more shocked once it takes place. If you live your life knowing that change may take place at any time and you are ready for any challenges coming your way, you will be guaranteed success. You will have more time, more space and more energy to embrace new outcomes that are most likely to be better than old ones.

“Life is no straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages, through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.
