Change doesn’t need to be something that we passively endure. Through philosophical reflection, it is possible to turn our anxiety about change around. We can change the way that we experience change, such that we no longer perceive it as a battle and ordeal, but as an opportunity – an opportunity to change ourselves for the better, to explore new ways of living and being.
We must learn to see the opportunity in change. We must learn to make the decisive shift from passivity to empowerment, from seeing change as an ordeal to seeing change as an adventure.
True leaders know what to do with change. They see what’s empowering in it.
