Change is a good thing, even if you have to jump out of your comfort zone!

Hello there you!

How do you feel about change? As in changing your career, your mindset, your eating habits, or taking up a new hobby. Change can mean many things. This year I became certified as a Life Coach, NLP Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I was nervous when training started, but the more I became familiar with the course material and my training group, the more I warmed up to this change.

The process of change can be full of personal development and you discover more and more about who you are as a person and recognising strengths/weaknesses (as I am on this coaching path) Facing these challenges head on is a constant journey of growth and can pull you right out of your comfort zone.

You hold the key to

Unlocking your full potential

Believe in yourself

I’ve always been passionate about encouraging, supporting and helping others; and finally plucking up the courage to sign up to an accredited course was a positive step towards that goal of pursuing the field of coaching.

What do you want to change in your life at the moment? How can you make that happen?

Have the courage to follow your

heart and intuition

Steve Jobs

I worked in a senior position within the corporate world for years and just never really felt fulfilled (when I reflect hard on that time). When my children were born I made the decision to stay at home with my little girls while they were still young, and it has been the best decision, in order to spend that quality time with them before they started school.

Embracing change and following your heart

Although change can be daunting, the more you follow your gut instinct, do your research and take your time; you realise that life really is short and you become clearer about what you really want.

Believe in yourself and how capable and worthy that you really are.

Two years ago I wasn’t a writer and now, I’m a published writer, poet, blogger and have written articles for positive wellbeing magazines and poetry zines. How did I move forward with my writing goals? I started to believe in myself and joined a writing club. Connecting with a community of like-minded writers is empowering. Joining a community with individuals who share your passions and interests can help you to grow and move forward.

Opening that door

Working hard to achieve your goals when it feels right will open that door to amazing opportunities when you allow yourself to do so.

It all comes down to ‘you’ at the end of the day!

Write a list of what you want to achieve within the next 6-12 months and work on those goals, while working on yourself. Make that decision; allowing yourself to embrace ‘change’.

What are you passionate about when you listen to your gut instinct?

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day and remember ‘change’ is a good thing! And, as the saying goes:

A change is as good as a rest”

It will open doors to wonderful opportunities!

Well, for the sake of debate, I think change Can be a good thing. I think saying it is Always a good thing may not be true. In the changes through my life, I have decided to find the positive, and that does make it a good thing. : ) For that reason the choices I make for new relationships, places to live, and how to respond to crisis have become transformative. // Hope to see you as part of the Poetry Challenge this month: pareado about friendship.

Hi Rebecca, although change may not always be a good thing; when I’ve gone through big changes in my life (although challenging) it’s always pulled me right out of my comfort zone, making room for growth, to adapt (when looking at it positively) and as you say has been transformative. We always have a choice in how we cope with change. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and sharing your valuable views πŸ™‚

Especially if you have to jump out of your comfort zone. Security is overrated. Good for you for taking a chance and pursuing your passions Bernie. Wishing you all the best on your journey. πŸ™

I believe that growth happens outside of your comfort zone, so it’s always good to expand your boundaries. It’s not exactly the funnest thing to do though, which is why so many of us avoid it. But as they say, the only constant in life is change, so we best get used to it. Thanks for this post, Bernie!

Growth is challenging alright Stuart, but the more we move forward, the easier it becomes, making us stronger as we adapt to that change (even though it’s not the funnest thing to do). Thanks so much for your comment and have a great weekend πŸ™‚
