How do you feel about change?

What can I expect and what should I do?

Where the fear came from


A lot of fear is built from a story line we have created in our unconscious mind. Often the fear has come from something unrelated and somehow has morphed into a feeling of lack of control which stops you taking action in a direction you need to go in. Uncover the storyline and you will be able to name the fear to face it.




Where you have had previous success


When have you faced your fears before and still taken action? How did you overcome the feelings, and what did you do afterwards? Being able to pull on your past successes will give you encouragement to continue facing the challenges that will no doubt come along in the future.




How you can do it again?


Facing the unknown is one of the biggest causes of fear. During change we often don’t know what’s ahead and that can trigger fearful emotions. If you get a clear picture of what is going to happen and what you should expect it can help to alleviate some of the fear. Ask questions and be curious to find out as much as possible.





Need to take action


The first step is always the hardest. Our fight, flight and freeze response is our brains way of protecting us from danger. So sometimes if you are feeling fear you should listen, however, more often than not, our response is unwarranted. Talking through our fear with a trusted person helps to make sense of it and gives us courage to take that first step.




Feel overly emotional


Fear can trigger many different emotions for us, and often they can seem to be exaggerated and out of proportion to the situation. This could suggest you have some baggage from your past that is being activated. Discussing your feelings around the situation will help to uncover what is really going on in your unconscious mind and then work to release the emotion around it.




Feel paralyzed


Fear can stop us in our tracks at any point, and sometimes we don’t recognize it as fear. We may mistake it for exhaustion or disinterest. Find someone you trust to help you dig deep to really understand what is stopping you from taking action.

Taking time to reflect


Consider each and every step you took. Moving from a position of stuck to movement is an achievement in itself. Don’t be concerned with the amount of time it takes, focus on the steps you have taken and then what’s next.




Taking a viewpoint from where you are now


It’s easy to get held back in the past, one of the challenges with getting stuck is being held back by living in the past. Take time to consider where you are right now and where you need to get to, maintain the momentum of movement.




Reviewing your feelings


What came up through the process of change? What is giving you energy right now and what is draining you? Is there something or someone who is a source of encouragement? Success will be continued by being in the right head space.

Checking in with your emotions


Are you still feeling excited, or have those feelings been replaced by something else? The process of change creates many different emotions at different stages. Be ok with how you feel at each stage and then be ready for the next step.




Looking back


Review previous experiences with change and consider which areas you felt more and less comfortable with. What parts get you really excited and what parts are more challenging? Keeping the memory of the positive feelings well help you manage the down times easier.




Planning what’s next


Now you have moved from one place to another it’s time to look for the next thing. A great way to measure success is to check how far you’ve come along your journey.
