7 Things We Can Learn from Who Moved My Cheese!! | Life Lessons

Hello, my friends! 😀
Who can believe that a story with just 4 characters who loved cheese, can be so powerful and interesting? We are talking about Dr. Spencer Johnson's book, Who Moved My Cheese. It's Fast. It's Simple. It Works! Yes, that's what is written on the back of the book. The book is about how to deal with Change in our Life and Work. Whether you have already read the book or not, today's article will be interesting for you. We are sharing 7 of the things we can learn from this book -


Lesson 1. Change is Inevitable!

The first and foremost lesson we can learn from the story of Sniff, Scurry & the two humans is that Change is Inevitable. Life will never be the same every day so don't get too comfortable with your life. Maybe in your work the management can change, in your career, your finances can change, in your personal life, people can leave you. There can be so many changes happening every day whether you are ready or not. The best way to deal with those changes is to accept those gracefully. Instead of crying on why the changes happen, be open-minded to the changes. You know what they say, The only thing constant in the world is the Change.

Lesson 2. Anticipate Change!

The people who get sad and worried once the unwanted change happens in their life is because they are not anticipating the changes. As discussed in the 1st Lesson, Change is inevitable. Be ready for the changes in life and try to predict it by observing small things around. If you can anticipate the change before, you will have time to be mentally and physically prepared for the changes.

Lesson 3. Monitor Change!

If you are thinking about how to anticipate changes, you have to look around for the minute details around you. Change can happen in a second but most of the times the big change will be a result of small changes. For example, if you are in a relationship and you recently had a breakup, it would not be because something changed in a day. You might not have noticed but in the previous few weeks, you might have definitely seen some small unusual things happening between two of you guys.


Lesson 4. Adapt To Change Quickly!

Even though you couldn't anticipate the change or couldn't find the patterns, in the end, the change happened. There are two choices now, either to sit behind and cry about it or accept the change happened and move on in life. It is tough but not impossible to move on. There is nothing you will get now complaining about why the change happened. No matter how much you control your life, there are some things that you cannot control. The best thing now for you now is to adapt to the change and begin a new journey.

Lesson 5. Let Go Of Your Fear!

Once the change happens, one reason people are not able to move in life is because of their fear. We get the fear of the future, we keep getting thoughts of what can happen with us, how can we deal with the changes and so on. Think about, What would you do if you are not afraid? This small question will give lots of courage to you and we can move on and adapt the change quickly.

Lesson 6. Old Methods Will Not Give New Results!

Till now we were concentrating on how to deal with the change. There is another important point in life, that why in life Change is needed? A wise man said once, If you want something in your life which you never got, then you have to do something in life which you never did. Old same methods will give you the same results. You need to change the method to get the new result. If you are a homemaker and you are preparing a pav bhaji recipe with the same method every time the taste will be the same, if you want to improve the taste you have the get the change added in your recipe.
Change is a crucial necessity of life so if some changes are happening in life it would be for your good only, even though you cannot see it now, you will realize it in the future.


Lesson 7. Be Flexible and Open!

Don't be rigid in life. Be a little flexible and open to life as life can be uncertain sometimes and you might get unexpected things in the journey. However, if you learn how to deal with the changes in life then any change can be as powerful as you want it to be. Life is meant to be happy, so be happy and worry less.
