Change is happening everyday to everyone! If you haven’t experienced it in some form or fashion, then you must be living under a rock! Everywhere you turn, things are evolving…at work, home, and in your relationships. It’s a fact of life that change is going to happen. The trick is learning how to embrace it so you find more joy and happiness in your life.
Change is Good, It Means You’re Growing
As a deep feeler, change is not always a good thing. It can bring up feelings of overwhelm, stress, anxiety, and the big one…FEAR! When fear rears its ugly head, you become blocked and try to force things to happen. This motivational video can transform what you think about change…
Learning to embrace change isn’t easy, in fact it can be quite difficult. What you need to ask yourself is whether it’s worth the effort. Think about a time when you embraced something outside of your comfort zone. How did it make you feel? Were you excited, happy, or confident? Of course you were! When we like change, it’s good and when we don’t, it’s not. So…how do you make it a good thing?
Progress NOT Perfection
Take baby steps, it’s about making progress not being perfect.
- Make a choice to find the positive. You’ll feel good when you shift your perspective from negative (fear) to positive (appreciation).
- Express gratitude. Face it…when you’re grateful for what you have you feel better.
- Journal about how you feel. Give yourself the chance to release any negative feelings and embrace the good ones. Write down all the “bad” things in one column, and all the “good” ones in the other. Pick a good feeling.
- Take action. Put one foot in front of the other and get moving. Channel that good feeling you identified and find your POSITIVE support for the change.
Commit to practicing these steps, whether you like them or not. When you do, you’ll accept that change can be good. Why are you not embracing change? If you don’t have a good feeling about it, tell me in the comments. I’ll help you find one!
