Too many people are stuck in the past: old ideas, old technologies, and old ways of living. When we don’t embrace change, we don’t grow or evolve. Accepting change and using it to fuel our growth is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves in every area of our lives.
But how can we resist our natural inkling toward predictability and become comfortable with change?
To answer that question, Hala invited Jason Feifer, a champion of change, onto Young and Profiting podcast. Jason is the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine. He hosts two podcasts that focus on how to take hold of change and use it to your advantage. He’s also the author of the newly released book, Build For Tomorrow, which outlines how to use the power of change to your advantage using wisdom from some of the brightest minds in the world.
In this episode of YAP, Hala and Jason talk about how entrepreneurial thinking differs from the rest of the population, and how embracing entrepreneurial thinking can help you find more opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise have seen, even if you’re not an entrepreneur. They explain how to stack your skills in order to open new doors for yourself, why we resist change, and how humanity has resisted change throughout history. He also explains how we can use failure as data and view new situations as temporary experiments rather than permanent commitments.
