10 Things to be Aware of When Going through Change
What's next for you?
You’ve decided to make a change in your life. Change can be difficult for the human brain to confront and move through.
If you feel like you’re faking it in the beginning, that’s normal. You are in the process of letting go of an old you that you no longer need and bringing in a new you which sometimes creates some friction with some old ideas an
Think of this friction as a necessary catalyst for change into the new you. You have to strike the match to light a fire.
Your strength needed for the future is worth the struggle you may be having right now. Try to think of it as the chick that has to find its way out of the shell or a caterpillar that is transforming into a butterfly but has to struggle to get out of the cocoon. In the end, it’s all worth it because you’re worth it— you are growing and transforming yourself.
Focus on living the life you want to live, regardless of what is going on around you; regardless of the opinions and limiting beliefs of others.
Who you are and who you are not is entirely up to you. When you honestly acknowledge who you are not, it can deliver you into a place of who you truly are. Focus on that.
Let that honesty carry you and guide you in your responsibilities to yourself and others.
Who do you have to become, what qualities do you need to achieve a sense of meaningfulness in your life?
Think about these qualities and the people that demonstrated them well.
Focus on how you can demonstrate and portray these qualities in your own life, to fulfill you in your own way.
