“Learn to get in touch with silence within yourself, and know that everything in this life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from.”
Human Beings are creatures of habit. You prefer familiar, predictable, stable, and controllable circumstances. You at least like the feeling of being in control, even if it is not completely accurate. Transitions can be unsettling…for anyone.
When circumstances change, they can cause a little wrinkle, a speed bump, or even a total “Life-quake.” Whether you set your own goals, like lowering your golf score, learning a new language, or becoming an outstanding presenter, it is easier to orchestrate and manage the change process when you are in the driver’s seat. When change happens to you, you can easily feel like you are bouncing around in the trunk of someone else’s car. It may be a positive change, as in a job promotion where training and computer skills are necessary for the job, and you feel as if you are in over your head. It could be a change dealing with circumstances that are out of your control, a burnout, a company merger, restructuring, layoffs, or a transfer to a different location; it is at those times, that doubt, uncertainty, overwhelm, and anxiety can easily ensue.
