Upon waking today I find myself thinking about the pain still…. because of the situation being revisited by the person showing up.
How did I get through that time? What were the key factors? Where did I finally arrive to?
The year following my departure from the airline (pun intended) I knew my calling and my purpose. It was and still is to help people like me, women aged fifty-something who suffer transition, especially through job loss to empower them toward a life of financial freedom by doing what it is they love to do.
I sat down and recreated the steps, the tasks I took to move through my transitional period. Surprisingly, the steps had been used many times during my life! These same steps took me through the transition of processing this latest pain and hurt.
Not only that, but I recalled the steps this morning as I lay in bed mulling over the present situation and found that I can apply them here, today.
Last year I wrote a book on the process (you can find it here on Amazon.com) and am creating a course and workshop surrounding those steps. Oh, by the way, that process is outlined in its earliest and crudest form in the Now What document available to you by filling in the form on the right. -------->
I thoroughly believe in these steps and envision helping hundreds of thousands of people – perhaps millions move through their own transition that I organized my company Personal Transition Guidance, LLC at the beginning of this year.
In a nutshell here are the five steps.
Step One: Stop being the victim.
Step Two: Take stock of you what you have.
Step Three: Begin to see the possibilities.
Step Four: Keep and accentuate the positive.
Step Five: Take action.
Today I am following Step One of no longer being the victim -- again!
I’m curious. How might you apply this process to the transitions in your life? I’d love to hear from you.
Until tomorrow, Dream On!
“The best way I know how to get through a transitional period is to look forward into the future, how I want my life to be. I dream of what I want and take the necessary steps to get me there.” ~ PeggyLee Hanson, excerpt from Thrown into Transition: Now What Do I Do?
