Getting on the Positive Side of Change is an ongoing process. Wishing that things will change won’t get you on the other side of the problem. Unless you deal with the situation, it won’t magically go away. You need to take some form of action rather than avoiding the difficult situation. Putting it on the back burner, doesn’t relieve the stress the situation causes you. Because at a certain level you are living the situation every day. Quite often it’s a conversation you need to have with someone. At other times it might be a business decision. There is always something we avoid doing.
I have found that when I have taken action and been proactive, I usually feel better afterwards. Usually those situations that I have been avoiding are much easier to deal with than i had anticipated. And quite often I have been energized by the engagement. I know with conversations that I have been avoiding it’s usually that way. The conflict or unease that I had with someone becomes a springboard for better connection.
Whatever it is take a step forward toward resolving the situation. Quit wasting time and energy thinking about it and do something. Even putting a date on your calendar to take action is better than doing nothing.
One thing I know for certain is that when you don’t deal with the problem you still worry about it and on some level it fuels an underlying anxiety that doesn’t need any more stimulus.
Now is the time to confront what you are avoiding. Begin now.
