Thoughts and such like.....
Changes, like death and taxes, are inevitable! Sometimes we are the ones that drive changes, other times it feels like we have no choice, rather changes are happening to us. How we deal with changes often says a lot about us.
Change can make us act like stubborn children, no we're not going to move from our comfort zone, even when we drive the change we can find ourselves resisting moving forward. Often we blame external forces when really the resistance is internal. I often talk about how much I love change, how exciting it is and yet being honest I know there is a part of me that is running in the opposite direction, running scared! How I manage the process of moving forward is by taking time out, thinking about what it is that is stopping me and what I can do to get over my resistance. Sometimes I ask myself the question and let it sit for a while in the back of my head, where my unconscious mind takes over and the answer comes, other times I talk with friends and ask for their help or I ask for help from my coach! I need that push to help me overcome my resistance and instead of trying to do it all at once, I break it down into chucks? What will it look like when the change occurs? What is the first step in moving forward? Sounds easy and sometimes it can be, other times - oh boy it's like climbing up hill, backwards!
Do you remember a time you made a change? What did it feel like? Is there something in your life right now that you want to change? Try imaging what you will feel like when that change happens?
