7 ways to manage change
Little tests of life shows how prepared you are for a
change or turn of events in your life. People crave positive changes but are
not willing to put in the required action to bring the change to fruition. I

means to you. It ranges from working a bit of extra hours to getting on the
computers when you should be relaxing or sleeping to having to sacrifice your
time, money and passion to achieve a set goal. Whatever that translates to
within your schedule, it boils down to you having to get out of your comfort
zone and doing otherwise, those things you will ordinarily not do on ‘a good
From south to north, east to west, people of success that
I have come to know are people who worked really hard to achieve their goals
and remained consistence with those values such as dedication, determination,
persistence, endurance, enthusiasm, optimism and hard work that ensured
continued victory in the land of success.
Most times, changes are strategically planned and walked
into with calculated steps, although procedures may differ from person to
person, in terms of how much work was put into the planning and how great the
strides were, which sometimes, make it look like the change came by sheer
stroke of luck for other people.
I know there are a lot of people looking out to having
great positive changes to happen in their lives but are either not sure what
steps to take or afraid of taking these steps. Wherever you are; these are a
few tips on how to make change happen and mange it, and don't forget that what you think is what you feel and what you feel is what you attract. This means that your thoughts greatly contributes to what becomes your reality. To attract goodness, happiness and well-being, why not try out these uncommon law of attraction methods from any of the books recommended here.
However, there are still great ways you can effectively achieve positive change in your life and business if you follow these tips.
Imagine what change you want, when and how you want it and keep a bird’s-eye-view
of the landscape. This will help you attune your actions towards your goal and
keep you focused on what you want to achieve.
Reflect on your own values, strength and weaknesses:
Spend time reflecting on your values. Weight
those attributes you cherish about yourself and look inwards, as to how best
you can use these values and possibly your strengths to achieve your goals.
Also, think about your weaknesses and imagine how you can turn your weaknesses
into strengths at this time to achieve your goals. Better still, you could find
ways of seeking help to deal with these weaknesses if it’s in your way against
achieving your goals.
Have a clear
It is important to know what and why you want change. A sense of purpose
is essential to success and effectiveness, and if you do not have a clear idea
of what you want or you want it, you may not achieve any long standing change. Successful
change comes when you can clarify your goals and build on the bedrock of
You do not have to be a genius to achieve positive change in your life.
All you need is a good sense of commitment and focus that keeps you going. Once
you know what you want, find ways of getting it; keep trying. Recording
progress and being grateful of the progress, no matter how little grows your
strength for persistence. Never quit and remain determined with a bit of hard
Be flexible and creative:
Think outside the box, if it’s not happening
one way try another direction. Do not stick solely to your ideas and knowledge,
learn from other people, seek meaningful advice and be ready to change some of your
ways of doing things.
and know your limits:
Life is a pool of change, so keep in mind the uncertainties that may
occur. Take cognizance of those things you may not be able to change by keeping
high, your abilities to adapt your situations and circumstances. Bear in mind
that there is no such situation as ‘unbearable’, but rather your responses and
attitudes toward these situations will affect the outcome of things.
Focus your time and energy on being positive and optimistic. Optimism
gives you the power to stay on course and ability to keep striving on, well.
