The soft minded man always fears change. He feels security in the status quo, and he has an almost morbid fear of the new. For him, the greatest pain is the pain of a new idea.
-Martin Luther King
I learned very early on in my career that change is a constant, if you are unwilling to change and learn then the world will soon pass you by. My college consultations over the last month reinforced this. All of these coaches are successful, they do not have to change but they are being proactive and leading change rather than following. I learned that leading change is much more exciting than reacting to change. It is not always comfortable, but it is always exciting. It is particularly gratifying to see others follow and jump on the bandwagon when they do not have to lead and take risk.
