When you describe something as exhilarating, you mean that it makes you feel very happy and excited. So, on this month’s topic of coping with change, if you were able to find change exhilarating, then it would be much easier to cope with it, right?

In fact, there is an interesting quote by Rosabeth Moss Kanter, a Harvard Business School professor and she says, “Change is disturbing when it is done to us, exhilarating when it is done by us.”

This is so true, don’t you think? If you got fired from your job, that change would be disturbing and difficult to cope with. However, if you quit your job because you were going traveling for a year or you started your own business, then that kind of change would be very exhilarating!

Have you made any exhilarating changes in your life recently?
