Conquering Change- A Daunting Topic?
As you are reading this, I already know that this topic is not too daunting for you. You ask me how I know? I know this because you (or someone else who wanted you to know) found this post. And people who are looking are already on their way to tackle change. Research shows that if we are looking, we are already less intimidated, and our feelings of being overwhelmed by the unknown may degrease. Let’s look at your situation:
You’ve jotted ideas down to pursue, your next goal to tackle. If you’re super committed, but even with the best intentions, most people who set themselves goals to change something professionally or personally end up abandoning the change they embarked on sooner or later.
Here’s why most people abandon their goal to deal with a change that they are facing:
Without a clear, step-by-step project plan how to deal with change, they get completely lost.
They fall victim to paralyzing distractions ranging from little distractions such as tech hangups (another app to download, another time management device to check out) to big distractions such as family emergencies, negative thoughts, or lack of clarity over exactly what they need to do next to successfully deal with the change that they are facing.
As an already busy person with people to attend to, services to fulfill, and maybe even a day job to get to, you literally can’t afford to veer off course to improve how you deal with change. And the moment you get lost in your feelings of being overwhelmed, it may feel almost impossible to recover. However, you can learn to avoid the same old same old mistakes that you used to make, for example, not treating the development of your skill set and coping mechanisms like a project worth to pursue:
1. Building a successful set of coping strategies to tackle a change that you are facing isn’t particularly hard or complicated.
2. Most people approach developing their coping skills as something that “they are good at” or “just not good at”. But the thing is, you can’t treat the development of your coping skills as ”existing” or “not existing”. It’s an immensely valuable (and fragile) asset that when developed right, can increase your overall health, improve your professional and personal life, and earn you great gains over the course of YOUR lifetime.
3. Time to respect your ability to deal with changes you are facing for what it is – a PROCESS to embark on; a skill set to develop – and approach it accordingly. The key ingredient to your success in all of this is a course that empowers you to conquer change.
