How does Change Make you feel?
Have you ever asked yourself how does change make you feel? Or… have you heard like I have, that ‘people don’t like change!’
For me change is simply put doing something differently! Attended a business meeting where this was talked about and… you know what it made sense. Come to think of it I can relate to all of the phases mentioned. Sometimes fleetingly; sometimes for long times, particularly, when I procrastinate.
As the speaker Dr H. Kollias put it…it is a process that’s all! And yes we all go through these phases to achieve change. Whew! No wonder it is so hard!
Have you ever thought what happens to you when someone mentions ‘change’? Do you become anxious – yes to that one…
Then you have an attack of the ‘guilts’ because it’s not you! You can even think you have lost your identity particularly at your work or the role you play.
When I think of the different roles we play in our lives we can become, defensive, overwhelmed or depressed. It all makes sense! When we were once enthused or excited about the idea that we start to dig our heels in and become totally cold on the idea.
However, once we become familiar with the changes the good news is we have founds that it wasn’t that bad after all and start the acceptance phase
So the next time you are introducing changes you can expect all involved to be going through these phases at their own pace, not necessarily at the same time. It really is not easy… but, it Can Be Done!
When I look at nature I am in awe! It is always evolving, or… it has died. In other word change is inevitable… yes we definitely live in a changing world
On the whole I find change invigorating, so, how does Change make you feel?
PS: I hope this is helpful for you the next time you start implementing changes and hit your first hurdle.
Love to hear your thoughts and experiences. What is it you dread most with change?
