Are You Afraid Of How Fast Things Are Changing Around You?

Overwhelmed With Information

It seems like everywhere you look today, something is changing.  We are living in the information age and we are getting “bombarded” with information overload.  Everything you could ever want to learn about anything can be found by just asking Google! :-)   In my youth, my parents saved up all their money to spend thousands of dollars just to buy me an encyclopedia and dictionary set. Today all of that is available for free!  So yes, times have changed and they are changing very fast.

Facts of the Fast Paced Changes in Our World Today:

- the amount of new technical data is doubling every 2 years

- online social media has become the most influential source in helping consumers make purchasing decisions.

- Facebook is now the operating system on the social web

- Twitter believes it will have 1 Billion users by 2012

- newspaper advertising sales drop by $10 billion in 2009

- 24,000 children died around the world today due to poverty, hunger, and easily prevented diseases.

- climate change and global warming is happening and there is overwhelming scientific consensus that it is human induced.

Speed Of Change Is Accelerating

There will always be change, however, the speed of change today has been accelerated.  This has created an emotion of “fear” 8-O in a lot of people, so I wanted to create a video in which I share my humble perspective and hopefully allow you to see things through “different colored glasses”.   Please take a moment to look through my eyes and just maybe you’ll feel a little better. :-D

We hope you gained a different perspective from this article, and possibly shifted how you look at some of these changes happening all around you.  If you liked it, may we ask you to share by clicking the “f share” button at the top of the article, or “retweet” this post on Twitter?  And, we would love to hear your perspective on the changes going on in the world.

Also, if you’d like to learn tips and secrets I’ve used over the past 15 years, sign up for our video series below.

Sending you a lot of “Aloha” (love) & “Mahalo” (thank you) for being a part of our “Ohana” (family)!

    Hi Kellie,
    Change is absolutely the only thing that doesn’t change so it is important to work with change rather than fight it. I have just finished reading two books that will give quite a different spin on both change and how we feel about our own countries no matter what country we are from. I highly recommend reading “The Celesine Prophecy” and then “The Tenth Insight” by James Redfield.

    We must learn to recognize each of us as ourselves and to replace competition with cooperation between all people.

    We must, as you say, be grateful for the blessings we have received as citizens of the USA, but also recognize the wonderful people and countries around the world.

    Thanks for a thoughtful and thought provoking post.

    Oh Sandy, you are always on the same wave length. Celestine Prophecy and the Tenth Insight are two of my favorites! I did a blog post on them “Are You Willing To Become A Spiritual Entrepreneur?”.

    Thank you for your wonderful comments full of insight and awareness.
    Much aloha :)

    Kellie,
    Change is happening so quickly today. You bring up some great points about stopping to look around at your life. Where we go in life is definitely in our hands. We have the choice to learn and grow or just exist. How sad is that!?

    Thanks for the wonderful words of encouragement you share with us,
    Val :)

    Hey Kellie,

    What a great post. So many things in this world are really changing so very fast. We all have to be willing to accept change, but we still have the power to choose the path we will walk on.

    I am so glad that if I only had 6 months to live, I would still be doing the things I am doing today.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    It is amazing how fast things change from year to year. If you are not happy it does feel like we are wasting our time. I experienced that 18 years ago and quickly made changes. Thanks for this encouraging video and post.

    Aloha Kellie:
    The one thing absolute in our lives is change. Change to me means growth. Growing personally affects everything socially, economically and this is exciting news to know that everything affects everything else. As we grow and change we all have the ability to create massive amounts of shifts in the world for the positive. If we’re not growing, we’re dying. Thank you Kellie for being and agent of this change and for sharing so many wonderful insights with us.

    With love and light,
    Shannon

    Yes, Shannon and as the world expands, so do we. We are all growing at an exponential rate and it’s so exciting isn’t it?
    You are very welcome Shannon and thank you for also being a bright “light” for people to follow. You are a lighthouse, so others will not have to stay in the dark…. :)

    Hi Kellie, This is a real thought provoking post. To resist change won’t stop it and if there’s one certainty in life … it’s change. We can embrace it, learn and grow… or simply exist and get by in life. Thanks for sharing your insights!

    Hi Kellie,

    YES! Change is the most constant thing in life. And now all changes happen faster due to the energy shifts on the planet Earth. I absolutely agree with you that we are to embrace the flow of change and be the change that we desire to see in the world. Here is a video that in less than 2 minutes captures my life and taking responsibility while inspiring others to do the same. Enjoy it http://venusrecommends.com/what-do-you-choose-freedom-or-fear/
    Infinite love and gratitude to you,
    Venus :)

    Dear Kellie:

    As always, you have such a gracious way of sharing your thoughts about “Change.”

    I believe that as we take time to meditate and ground ourselves; we will first become connected to the indestructible essence of our inner Being and with that Core Being, we will have the wisdom and strength to flow in the moment-by-moment changes of life. We shall, in fact, guide and form these changes, with our own thoughts and actions! The Butterfly Effect has Life!

    Thanks for your Wisdom.

    Linda.

    Hi Kellie,
    Things are changing at an astounding rate. Sometimes it is difficult to keep up with all the “new” things happening in and around the world. I have always appreciated change and enjoyed the journey through change. Taking a moment to think through what we do every day and maximizing our time is so important. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Donna Merrill Says:

    Kellie, as usual, a captivating video! Yes change is accelerating. You know, in my profession as a psychic counselor, When I used to look at time, it would be so accurate. But something happened, and time seems to have accelerated. Changes go with that. So what I am trying to convey here is that through the intuitive eye, It seems like a tornado of energy. But I strongly believe in the Chaos Theory. That being said, you put the two together and bam…enlightenment comes on different levels to all. There are some who crazy glue themselves to their life and are unsatisfied or depressed. Others, ride this natural wave of chaos and find themselves surprised because they are open to change and find they are in a more fulfilling place.
    Considering the motion of the universe, it has an effect on us. New techniques, new adaptations of the world, whether we like it or not, we must be at peace with it. I’ll stop this novel by saying that we should only be in control of what we can control and in harmony with those changes we cannot. Donna

    Oh! I too remember the very special encyclopedia set
    we grew as a valued family collection so precious at
    the time and now… The fast ever growing technology
    is leading the way! I love what is at our fingertips
    today but we do need to look at where you are at.

    You made me stop and think are you doing the things
    today that are working… are these things really in
    your life’s best interest. Prioritize and meditate
    about what is REALLY important to you. Maybe it is
    time to embrace a change.

    Take a time out and do some soul searching.

    Hey Robin, you remember those encyclopedias huh? Oh, than you! I also realize how fast the years are going by when the younger generations say that I started my business in the “dinosaur age”! ;)
    I am so glad you took time to prioritize and do what’s really important today. It’s so important to live for today.
    Thank you so much for your comments. I really appreciate your words.

    Yes, the world is indeed changing ~ including the rules! The problem is that people don’t seem to want to read the new rule book! You are so right that each of us one is responsible to lead the charge. I think change is one of the things that people fear most, but we all know it is inevitable. It’s a choice ~ give or take. Rise or fall. Thrive or survive. Everybody CAN do it ~ it takes coming together and surrendering.

    I love how you said we should be more child-like ~ I so agree! As a mom of a very wonderous 2 1/2 year old, as you know, this age makes EVERYTHING feel possible! Oh, and regarding change ~ I sure am happy for google, because this new “why” stage is making me realize there is a lot I don’t know! So now I can say “let’s go find out together” ~ whereas I’m sure my mom just made up an answer to appease me! ;)

    Thank you for sharing this powerful message, Kellie. You are so positive!

    Aloha Beth,
    Thank you for your very insightful comments and I am so glad you enjoyed the video.
    Your son is so fortunate to have a mom who is home for him and one that will take the time to find out the answers to the “whys”. My Mom had a great answer (at the time, back in the 60′s) when I asked why, she said “Because” and that was it. Because there was no way to look up the answer anywhere!
    And thanks so much for your kind compliment! I will receive it. And I know you know that the saying “it takes one to know one” is very true!
    What a joy to have a friend like you Beth! :)
    Aloha :)

    Awesome post! If we flow w/all the changes that happening, we will paddle downstream. I love the quote by Jim Rohn, “For things to change, I have to change and for things to get better, I have to get better”. All of this is happening for a reason and it’s always for the good.

  18. Kellie Hosaka Says:

    Yup, it’s all good! And you’re flowing with the changes. Catch the wind and set your sail because we are in the best times right now! Thank you for your comments Cheryl! :)
