Change is the only constant... You would think that we would be used to managing change gracefully, but that's not the case at all. Instead, change usually creates lots of stress.
Imagine what it would be like if you could meet changes with a smile and sense of optimism. Imagine how your life would be if you felt ready to deal with changes without anxiety.
Many years ago, I did a little bit of martial arts. One very powerful lesson was learning to differentiate between fear and adrenaline. Fear creates anxiety. Adrenaline creates clarity.
A mentor works with you to slow down the action and methodically choose the adrenaline path. Gradually, raw, unbridled emotion gives way to rigid, mechanical reaction. Finally, natural, spontaneous responses, fueled by adrenaline, will emerge.
But mastering change is not natural. You have to learn to internalize it. The best way to do that is with a mentor or coach. The first step is the toughest and the greatest.
