John had been working intensively to make some key changes in his life. He knew he was at the end of his time as an employee for a company he had been with for 15 years. John was ready to make a bold move.
He had given himself an exit strategy and was fit to become a full time entrepreneur the following year. He wanted to be his own boss. He was excited about the new opportunity but also apprehensive and felt a sense of broken loyalty to his existing employer. That didn't stop John. He was willing to move through the fear, take the leap of faith and risk it all to follow his dream.
Susan knew the new year was going to bring big changes. She was ready to shift from being a happily single and independent woman to merging her life with a wonderful man who would become her husband and father to her children. At times, she would be full of positive energy about this change, yet other times she would awake in the night with fear and dread about losing her independence and becoming attached to someone that she would have to depend upon.
These type of “End of cycle” changes are huge and they can bring up a lot of emotions. Situations like the holidays, the start of a new year, or a new election, new relationships or change in health status are energetically loaded. People get triggered. There are a lot of dynamics going on and sensitivities can run high with change.
When change happens how do you cope? Do you feel love or fear of the new? It probably depends on the situation.
Whether it is a career move, relationship shift, health or financial crises/opportunity or just coming to a change within the wheel of life, it is going to bring up “stuff.”
How do you handle your “stuff” when it comes up?
Being mindful, you can consciously navigate through cycles of change.
Through applying intention, a few thought provoking questions, and some positive reflection, you can steer the rudder of your ship in the direction of a new life and towards the dreams you hold dear.
To lead your life and business positively in ways that can inspire and motivate you to make change in the new year or any new cycle, here are 7 questions to ask yourself:
What have I learned about myself through this last cycle/year/experience/relationship/job etc?
Based on what I learned about myself what are my intentions for this next cycle/year/experience/relationship/job etc?
What do I value most about this past year/experience/relationship/job etc?
In what areas of my life and business did I progress?
In what areas of my life and business did I decline or not make progress?
If there are actions I could take so that I could experience more success in this next cycle, what would those actions be?
What focus/perspective/belief do I need to own to make my new life match the inspiration that caused me to create the opportunity in the first place?
These questions can be applied to any new cycle of change.
Next, take your answers and turn them into intentions. For example, if you had a decline in your business due to faulty marketing or feel you did not make progress this past year in your health, make the intention to progress in those areas in new and inspiring ways.
You have the full creative potential to be, do or have anything you want. Most of the problems experienced are just learning experiences. So rather than beat yourself up or fill the new with a bunch of fearful thoughts, find the value in what you learned and be intentional about your lifestyle design.
The beginning and end of cycles are going to happen, several times during a lifetime. Give yourself permission to move through these changes with ease, grace, flow and positive intention!
Hold you and your dreams in the highest light!
