Development & Doh!
Personal change management is the act of taking stock of your circumstances and taking actions to get a favorable outcome.
I talk about personal change management and development……BECAUSE…..I am that GIRL. At around age 50, I started getting arrested, went to jail and prison, and decided I had to make some serious decisions concerning my future life.
Late Bloomer Boomer! I became a mature student, got 2.75 degrees in 10 years in management and leadership. I am an expert at personal change management.
My life, experiences (& there have been some doozies!), readings, and research have shown me many ways and principles of change, changing, and the change process. My educational journey has significantly added to the personal development toolbox.
Change, So What the H*ck is It, Anyway?
Think about it and give it serious thought. I am sure you can remember many a situation that brought about some major life changes. Sometimes, these changes were abrupt, some were pretty sneaky.
Nevertheless, as change occurs or is occurring, how you handle the change affects the evolution throughout your environment (LIFE). The need here is to consider the possibilities concerning your future decision-making, life, and other important aspects.
Changing…..An Ideal Future — OMGosh!
You are changing and you want to be serious about your personal development. But you, either Stop or procrastinate BIG time? I am here to say…Knock it OFF!!!
I get it, I can be a lazy galoot, myself. But, I am talking about the “I can’t handle this” idea! If you know like I think you know, this kind of thinking will have you stuck like Chuck! On the positive, this thinking does not have to break you down or stop you.
Just because you got caught off-guard, zigging when you would have done better zagging! You can always get back up and take the bronco ride, roll, and flow with the change. Just flat out handle the Schtuff! Manage personal change like a Boss!!!
Change Process…..Thinking Cap
Change, in all its forms, takes time. I totally get it. I know you do too! This is understandable. The change process can be scary because of the unknowns. You have to believe it will work. Adopt a new way of being, and a new perspective about EVERYTHING! The results, a Big “YOU” transformation. Think about it, this change may have been long coming. Welcome and Embrace IT.
Do you know who you are? REALLY? Do you know what makes your SOUL and Spirit Smile? Can you see how all the parts of your life, present, the past, and future (e.g., people, places and things, Oh MY!) interconnect, how they work over time and their place in the larger scheme of your desired life and living.
A Journey Where You Have NOT Gone Before
In some instances, change will make it necessary to alter your life design, to meet future goals and actions. Genuine transformation will call for a life redesign. Change the thinking behind the current thinking. You see, the intentional focus is the creation of new thinking–dynamic, active, and applicable to you and your life. https://possibilitiesingrowth.com/2017/06/15/one-reason-behind-genuine-transformation/
Dang, I will say it again…..change needs managing! First, you want to get through the change. Second, you want to be successful with the change. I believe this involves four actions ….. open-mindedness, adaptability, progress through (acceptance), and success (movement). Each one of the actions work in tandem to a change victory. It is your call on how this is going to go down.
