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.





Reflecting on your progress


You have moved through fear to get to this point, reflect back on how you felt stepping into this change and congratulate yourself for taking the steps to get this far. You have now stretched your comfort zone into an area where you would not have previously gone. What else are you able to do now?




Listening to your words


Consciously connect with the language you now use. Previously you may have said, “I can’t” “I’m not able” and now hear yourself say “I did this” “when I do that”. The use of positive language will keep you moving forward and also demonstrates to others that you are capable of achieving great things.




Feeling renewed energy


Working through fear increases adrenaline which allows us to take even more productive steps forward. Fear and excitement trigger the same feelings and once we have reframed them, we can continue to use that same feeling to continue working toward our goals.





Resistance


Feeling stuck means you that you have some resistance to the change that is coming up. Uncover where this comes from, usually the sources are fear, lack of understanding or apathy. Understanding which helps to identify the next cause of action.




Taking action


The only way to beat resistance is to take action and create momentum. The action can be a small, seemingly insignificant one, but all action is progress.




Enlightenment


Resistance sometimes kicks when we are right on the brink of getting what we desire, the fear of achievement can sometimes stop us taking that finial move. Once taken, you really can see great results.





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.

Hard times


It won’t all be plain sailing, be ready for times when you begin to doubt the reason for the change. You are likely to experience a roller coaster of emotions, being excited is just one of them.




Feeling alone


Your positive response to change will likely not be felt by everyone else around you. It could feel like you are the only one who can see the benefits and therefore wonder why you are alone.




Great things ahead of you


Change is the only way we get better or achieve different results, because of your excitement to experience change you are likely to get the best results, opening doors to even better next steps.
