Facing Abrupt Change
Have changes changed you?
Until the ABCs are learned,
changes can be unbelievably
Were you kicked out of school or out of your home? Were you fired from the best job you ever had? Did you wake up in a hospital after a disabling accident changed who you were and what you could do?
Did a death change your family structure? Maybe you were arrested for theft when the money ran out; or perhaps that pivotal change in your life was as simple, yet life-changing, as an unexpected pregnancy.
Learning to accept and adapt to sudden changes increases our emotionally stability. If we haven’t learned the basic skills of accepting and adapting to change, a simple fender bender may send us over the edge. For me, living with the aftermath of a disabling motorcycle crash showed me the need to accept changes that are beyond my control.
The ABCs of Adapting
I suffered every day until I learned the details behind the simple formula for adapting to my new reality.
- Accepting life on life’s terms.
- Believing I can succeed
- Caring about others.
A more in depth explanation of the ABCs is available on my Thinking Positive post. A full explanation is heard in my Winners Don’t Quit keynotes.
