HOW TO LOVE CHALLENGES
ON EMBRACING SUDDEN CHANGES
IN THIS unpredictable, rapidly growing world we live in, the phrase “change is the only constant” has never been more true.
And with many industries dramatically transforming, downsizing or dying altogether, uncertainty in our careers is inevitable.
Change management speaker Marty Wilson is here to tell you that your fears are completely normal but not that important.
After years spent jumping jobs from being a stand up comedian to pharmacist to copywriter, Mr Wilson now works with businesses to help people see how fear holds them back from embracing change at work.
Much of his study on this comes from interviewing more than 1000 inspirational will draw on his experience of talking to more than 1000 people on how to love change

“All the things they talked about is how you handle those times in your life when you are thrown into the deep end,” he said.
“When you refuse to change, you don’t hold onto the past, you just lose the future.
Mr Wilson said the fear of sudden changes in our surroundings was hardwired into us long ago.
“Our brains have evolved to keep our bodies alive and safe long enough to procreate,” he said.
“Because we are brought up to call fear ‘something bad’, we build this bubble of sameness around us to avoid it.
“You have to get through that feeling and recognise it for what it is – an evolutionary hangover.”
Mr Martin said small differences like driving a different way to work or parking in a new spot can help train your brain to get used to change.
“If you are deliberately getting out of your comfort zone, you handle those times that are coming whether you like it or not much better,” he said.
