I want to thank Linda for taking the time out of her very busy touring schedule to sit down and do this for me and a huge thank you to Dorothy from Pump Up Your Book for arranging this and for being so accomadating.
Staying Grounded in Shifting Sand- Embracing Change
Sometimes we got those cosmic nudges, if not a 2X4 slap across the face, to change. Sometimes what appears on the surface to be bad news, may in the end result in a positive change. Next time you are challenged with a change, stop to ask how the change will serve a higher purpose. Will the change shift you to a better place? The 2X4 slap and subsequent change may be a blessing in disguise.
I faced such a cosmic slap a few times, the hardest ones coming as I lost a job and went through a divorce. Though I didn’t seek out either change, as I came out the other side, I could see that the changes were necessary to get me to a new and better place. I dealt with some deeply buried wounds, cleared some self-limiting beliefs, and found new faith and strength I could never imagined having.
Now I no longer fear change or uncertainty because I know that what I’m going through will get me to a better place.
Depending on how ready you are for change, how much you think the change will help you, and how successful you feel you'll be making the change, you may welcome or avoid change.
If you intentionally want to change some aspect in your life, you can follow some concrete steps to navigate through the change. I've developed a process called Transformational EmpowermentTM to support people making change. These ideas came from working with my coaching clients and my workshops over the last six years. The Transformational Empowerment process uses some basic spiritual principles to support you in making profound and lasting changes.
If you are looking to make a job or life change, and truly want the change to stick, I invite you to use these steps for Transformational Empowerment. Visit my website (www.lindajferguson.com) to receive a free series of handouts and videos that will help you in your change process. You’ll receive a series of emails where I’ll share stories that describe how each of the steps work.
Try out the ideas of Transformational Empowerment and you'll be well on your way to create a significant life shift, to reach your goals, or to fulfill your heart's desire.
Embrace the journey. The change may do you good.
