Does change hit you hard?
If you answered “yes”…why do you think that is?
It could be because change, when taken at face value, represents an upset in the status quo – a disruption of your comfort zone. And, when the change is something big, it can send your stress levels sky-high, and rob you of your peace of mind.
But we have to ask ourselves why.
We know that change is inevitable and there’s really no way around it. But people still fret about it, worry about what’s lurking around the corner, and wonder when the proverbial “other shoe” is going to drop.
This is no way to go through life!
So the next time change brews up in your life, try shifting your view, approach it differently, and remember the following:
- View the change as an opportunity for personal growth. See and accept life’s challenges as a way of personally developing into more than you thought you could be. Bettering your life can only happen by first removing what is holding it back. The ‘old set’ has to be torn down first before a new, more vibrant one can be built. This is the only way circumstances will improve.
- Recognize that change is hard to swallow in just one gulp. Give yourself the time needed to accept change on your own internal timetable. Your internal clock ticks at a time different than anybody else’s. We transition through many stages of change that can range from denial on the one hand to commitment on the other. This process takes a different amount of time for each person. Surrender to the process and accept however long it will take to work your way through these stages of change. If others can get through change quickly, well good for them. Go only at the pace that’s right for you.
- Conserve your energy. People spend so much energy fighting and resisting change rather than using their energy in more productive ways of acceptance and letting go. We can choose to channel our energy in more positive ways that can make us feel empowered to deal with change rather than seeing ourselves as mere victims to change. When we direct our energy toward more positive ways of dealing with change, we invariably create better change outcomes.
- Accept change. Don’t just give the change in your life a handshake – embrace it! Welcome the chance to emerge from a difficult situation with much more strength than you possibly imagined you possessed. Strength brings confidence, and confidence is the necessary precursor to success.
And, if nothing else, remember this…
You have the power to be unstoppable!
