Why when new ideas or suggestions brought up that there is always someone who says “No!” We can’t deny that some new ideas might not be so good or might not truly be new at all but usually there is more to that no. Here are a few reasons that No is usually heard with new.
(1) FEAR- People are used to a certain way of life and fear change. Some people could be eating rice and beans all their life and fear adding fish because they worry what will happen to their rice and beans.
(2) CONTROL- When a new idea is brought up they fear that they will lose control. This individual who brings up the new idea will receive all the credit and they will be forgotten about.
(3) CLOSED- Individual may not accept that there could be something new outside the box because that is the box. They actually search for a moral cause or tradition that makes them have to stay in that box.
Once we understand the quandary some individuals are in we can either try to find a way for them to escape it or understand that we might not be able to change there opinion. Rest assured though once the idea is accepted that it will become old very soon with those same people and then they won’t want to change it again.
