Don’t Get Too Comfortable How many people like change? I have found that people don 't like new experiences because they feel that they don 't have control of their life, there is excessive uncertainty, or concerns about their competence. In other words they feel like they will fail or be a failure. New situations may be stressful or overwhelming. They may make their whole body feel paralyzed, their hands clam up, put a lump in their throat, and make them feel like their heart is pounding so hard it 's going to explode.
