No one really likes dealing with change, especially when the change isn't their idea.
I would say at one point in my life I was right up there as one of the worst people on the planet when it came to managing change in my life.
That sounds pretty dramatic doesn't it? Sad but true. I had to turn that around if I was going to have a happy and successful life and I had to do it quick!
I made a 180 degree turn on dealing with change and that is what I am going to share with you today. My winning formula that has brought me peace of mind and tons of happiness.
Get ready to have your life as you know it transformed. That is exactly what happened to me once I started to look at life from a different perspective.
What worked for me was turning the situation around and looking at what that situation had to teach me.
I had to realize that it was there for a purpose. Instead of feeling resentful because something is changing, I learned to embrace the change. I say learned because it is something I taught myself to do. Once I understood the key it was really very simple.
How do you embrace change? By asking your self what can I learn from this situation? Everything happens for a reason and if you find the reason and the lesson behind it, it takes away the resistance which is causing you pain.
We are never in pain because of change, only our resistance to change can cause us pain. Once I realized that it was like the golden gates opened up for me. It was one of those amazing "ah ha" moments where you are never the same after that.
I was listening to one of Oprah's interviews the other day, on her web site under soul series and she was sharing with a guest about a dream she had where the children in her dream were asking her, "What can you teach me?" She said what she learned from that was, to look at every event in her life from that perspective.
I realized as she was sharing, that is exactly what has helped me in my life to deal with change and to celebrate it.
That is one of the keys to dealing with change is the ability to look at any situation from a positive and exciting perspective.
I invite you to make a big shift in your life today. The next time you find yourself in a situation where something is new or different and you are dealing with change and you don't like it, stop and ask yourself,"What can I learn here?" Those five words are guaranteed to turn dealing with change from a negative experience to a positive one.
Just imagine that if you were told today that your place of employment was going out of business and instead of panicking or getting angry you took the opposite approach of looking at what that situation is trying to teach you.
You may find that, that job was not the best place for you after all and that you were too frightened to leave and now, you don't have to worry about leaving. Your life is now open for new possibilities and new dreams to enter. You can do what you want to do instead of what you feel you have to do. The change now becomes a wonderful opportunity instead of a horrible situation.
I share that example because I had an experience like that fifteen years ago and I remember thinking this is the worst thing that could happen. I don't have to tell you the end of that story you can probably figure it out. It ended up being the very best thing that could have happened.
I went on to not only a better paying career but a higher position with a company that gave me the experience and knowledge about running a successful business that I have today. Had I stayed with that other company I would have been miserable and stuck.
If this sounds too easy to be true then test it out and experience what I have experienced every time I take that alternate view of dealing with change, I end up feeling great.
Take this exciting challenge today and see for your self just how trans-formative and powerful that attitude is. Share with all of us how you went about dealing with change.
I wish for you all the happiness and success the Universe has to offer!
