Change Is Strange

If you want to feel your most excited — or your most challenged — just throw change in the mix. I know you already know this, but, change is necessary because it’s a huge part of you evolving as a person. But, IMHO, it’s the hardest part.

For me personally, the thing I WAS able to change, made me feel worse not better. For example, writing my first book. When I tossed the completed manuscript on my coffee table, I almost threw up. My discomfort with that level of success was palatable.

As a former corporate trainer, I would turn down speaking requests if the client wanted me to teach ‘Change’. Now that I work with women entrepreneurs, change is our first focus. Again, it’s not easy, but it’s where you’ve got to start.

How about you? Have you identified something you need to change, but can’t seem to get over the discomfort of change? If you do, I have a quick hack for that. View that feeling as fear (fear is the mother of all dream crushers). Say to yourself, “I feel weird, but I’ll do it anyway”

feeling change creates is the hard part.” —Sandra Smith
