Change can be unsettling, difficult, daunting and overwhelming. But it can also be exciting, refreshing, motivating and inspiring. Hmm confusing huh?.
Do you struggle with the idea of change and how it makes you feel?
If you do, you are definitely not alone. We as human beings naturally prefer consistency. It can make us feel safer. Further, resistance to change is biological as we have been wired for survival since our existence and our brains are designed to create habits. Some people also worry about change because they believe that they do not have the resources to cope or that the change will be far greater than they can handle.
But by avoiding change and focussing on things staying the same, we may never gain anything either.
We also know that each and every one of you reading this will have gone through unexpected changes in the past and you have still made it here today. In fact, change can also bring benefits, freedom, happiness and endless opportunities.
If you have ever wondered how other people experience change or how they get through these times then keep reading as we are about to share some golden nuggets with you based on our very own recent experiences.
Over the last couple of months our Thrive team have experienced sooo many changes that it has felt like a whirlwind at times. However, with the right mindsets, approaches and support that whirlwind has actually been one of positivity, eagerness and joy.
Not only have we had a change of name, staff changes and new contracts to assist communities across the region but we have also opened up an additional office location, travelled and released a book.
How did we get through all that change with smiles on our faces you ask? Simple, we practiced what we preach and what we support others with – amazing but easy strategies.
Approaching it as a team really helped us to not feel alone, to not feel daunted and to help us feel in control.
That’s why we want to continue to help you and be here as a team for YOU. If you need a team, if you need a support, if you need someone just to explore ideas of change with, or a journey of change, than we are here for YOU.
We have lived through poverty, built ourselves up, worked in the corporate sectors and now live a life of Thriving personally and professionally.
