How much control over change do you really have?
- Were they creeping changes or were they immediate disruptive changes?
- Were they changes in work methods or routines?
- Were they life or business-related?
- What level of input/decision did you have?
- What was your reaction to each?
- try to kick a habit;
- search for an original idea;
- try to shift business focus;
- try to change behaviour;
- try to change our culture;
- try to change the world
How can we mitigate this reaction so that we can move forward?
- When we feel that fear and anger, it’s good to acknowledge that it’s just my primitive brain (amygdala) reacting – give it a name – a ‘brain glitch” perhaps.
- Decide to move your thinking into a more logical place and put it into a new context or vision that inspires you.
- Activate a new behaviour that moves toward your vision. We know that new behaviours create new brain circuits. This is taking charge of your brain.
- Repeat these behaviours and celebrate that you are in control of your brain.
- Notice as time goes on that your anxiety and resistance has disappeared, or at least is much reduced.
- Know that change in this life is constant and think of ways to look to a future that is all about change.
Mindset Monday Challenge
This Mindset Monday post is presented especially for solopreneurs
by LowellAnn Fuglsang, Business and Career Coach
In my workstyle-lifestyle coaching work I love helping solopreneurs find direction, stay motivated and build systems that both support and promote their business. One support that I like to emphasize for them is the Google experience. Two great places to begin are my Weekly Being Your Own CEO Success Circle and The Portable Business Coach (Now titled “Solopreneur Evaluation Tool” – a tool that will tell you where you need to put more time and energy)
