Each season we experience change that is inspired by nature. It happens gradually as we notice the physical signs around us and our environment. We learn to adapt to the changes in weather by dressing for it and planning activities around it.
For adults we tend to follow the map set out on a calendar to assist us to prepare for seasonal changes. For children, they seem to be informed of adjustments more subtly and gradually and may be guided to notice the changes around them.
A favourite book of many children the world over which describes the journey of change so simply and beautifully created by world renowned author Eric Carle is The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Through his specific style of art infused with humour, they learn about the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly. It has such a modest way of describing this process to children by informing them factually but also incorporates an element of fun that makes the tale so familiar.
Children seem to manage the elements and acceptance of life’s predictable changes through stories and storytelling. Perhaps it is because they are sharing the experience with trusted adults who can create an atmosphere of magic and expectation that makes it so meaningful.
These treasured moments help prepare children with the knowledge that change will become a constant in life.
There will not always be the perfect story to soften the blows that accompany change.
With support, encouragement, and guidance change can become easier to navigate.
It can be viewed with a sense of excitement and wonder, much like the characters in a child’s book.
As a business owner change could be perceived as overwhelming or stressful without the assistance of a good support team behind them.
The Prosperity Project offers this support through books, courses and an online portal that is simple and instant to connect to on an on-demand basis.
The variety of resources can show you where the business owner currently is and can provide a road map of how to get where they want to be.
The process is made clear and simple which helps to forecast change in a way that can be navigated with confidence and focus so that when the unexpected appears that can be made a much easier to plan for.
