- Create a compelling vision - I know I had wanted to move for a while. My place was getting older and I wanted to be in the city where I could be closer to friends and clients. But it wasn’t until I realized that I had to change in order to reach the goals that I truly wanted - to be closer to community that I made the decision to finally move. I now had a compelling reason to move.
- Chart a course of action - once I knew I wanted to move I had to determine exactly where I wanted to go, find a place, and then take the necessary steps to sell my current house. I had to take action in order to make my dreams come true.
- Challenge the ups and downs that arise - as with any change resistance will arise. For me the house took longer than I expected to sell and there were many challenges in the process of selling it that arose, but I had to keep focusing on the reason I was doing this - to reach my goals and dreams - in order to push through the resistance.
- Celebrate - once you move through the resistance and get to the other side than you can celebrate. Celebration is a big part of acknowledging the action you have taken and recognizing the accomplishment of everything you have gone through. I celebrated with friends and family who encouraged me along the way.
What change are you going through? What step in the process are you in and what can you do to keep moving through the change process?
