To tackle change, we need self-confidence and courage.If our self-confidence grows, so does the courage to tackle change.
The following steps can help you build your confidence and self-confidence:
Step 1: Think positively
Banish the worst case scenario from your thoughts.There is a suitable solution for pretty much every problem. If I don’t know the solution itself, there are experts who can help me with it.
Optimism and certainty – there is always light at the end of the tunnel.Change the things you can change and accept the fact that you can’t change some things.
Step 2: You’re a strong guy
You have already mastered many tricky situations in your life with flying colours.Remember and make your positive experiences aware.
Make a list, and you’ll find that the majority of changes have turned your life around for the better.Keep your achievements in mind and learn from your mistakes.
Step 3: You are the most important person in your life!
Who is the most important person in your life?I want to bet that 99% on the question with: my children or my wife. But that is the wrong answer!
This sounds very selfish at first.On closer inspection, however, it is logical why you should be the most important person in your life.
Let me illustrate this with a small example:
Do you remember your last flight on holiday?Before the take-off, the nice voice of the stewardess sounds and gives the safety instructions:
In case of pressure drop, please use the oxygen masks, which automatically fall out of the ceiling.Please put on your mask first and then help children and other fellow travellers!…
Only if you are healthy and with a clear mind can you help others and be there for others!This does not only apply to emergencies on the aircraft. If you are happy, content and able to act, you can be there for others, for the second most important people in your life, and give them the energy and attention they deserve!
So make sure you’re doing well.Do sports, maintain your social contacts, take time for yourself. Surround yourself with people you care about. Enjoy the moment. Take care of yourself so that you have the strength to take care of others!
Step 4: One by one
Changes do not happen overnight.Rather, changes are continuous processes. We often let ourselves be blocked by the fact that impending changes seem too big for us, which overwhelms us and frightens us.
“Slice the Elephant”
“Cut the elephant in slices”.This motto accurately describes the best approach to change. Often the big changes are not necessary at once. Define intermediate goals and start step by step with your changes. Get the little stone rolling, which can trigger an avalanche.
An example of this:
You have been dissatisfied in your job for a long time and would like a change.- Do it! Catch to read job advertisements. Update your application documents. Apply for places you like. You have nothing to lose and you can leave time until you find the job that suits you and fills you.
The only thing that matters is that you do it!
You are the maker
Change enriches our lives.Often even small things that we change have a big impact. Change means believing in yourself and controlling one’s feelings.
Letting go means meeting changes positively and being open to new things.Enjoy the moment. Be grateful for what you have and not just be influenced by material criteria. Be a Maker – Do It!
