How to Deal with Change

Share This Post

Change is inevitable.  We all know this, you simply can’t avoid it.  I believe one of the personal trials we face in the prospect of change, is how we react to it.  A lot of the power in our own lives, lies within our reactions.  And change is something we will all have to deal with at some point – shifts in our personal life, a new challenge at work or even adapting to a transformation within ourselves.

More often than not this adjustment is a blessing in disguise.  If you struggle with the prospect of switching up your daily routine or getting out of your comfort zone – look at it from the angle of personal growth.  Being pushed out and away from the familiar is an excellent learning experience and can absolutely help you grow within yourself.

How can we learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable?  How should we react?  

Here’s my quick how to guide on approaching a change (big or small) in your life:

  1. Acknowledge the shift.
  2. Accept the fact that you’re going to be uncomfortable.
  3. Reflect on how this change can positively impact your life.  
  4. Consider and curate your reaction.
  5. Balance.  Figure out what you can do for yourself and others around you to make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
  6. Embrace the change – sometimes when there’s nothing left to do and it’s out of your control. Let go and let it be.
