RIDING THE WINGS OF CHANGE July 21, 2011

How do we navigate the change process?

Step 1

There must first be a CURIOSITY. A desire to learn something new, to look beyond the surface.

Step 2

We must let go of our FEARS. Fear of failure and fear of the unknown are natural reactions. Not only is understanding the “fear” critical, but we must also learn to recover from it in order  to move forward.

Step 3

Make CHANGE an asset. A certain amount of stress can be a motivator. Identify positive stress (eustress) versus negative stress (distress). Get EXCITED about asking the questions rather than knowing the answers.

Step 4

Don’t go it ALONE. Finding external support systems enables you to see things from someone else’s perspective that you might miss and build camraderie with others who can be compassionate.

Step 5

A BRIDGE between the past and present. We cannot abandon our “old selves” but can take that foundation and  build upon it. Loving our whole self with all it’s imperfections is critical to navigating our present and future paths.
