Transitions ... why do we resist them


However, for many of us, change is intimidating because we don’t know what lies ahead. It challenges us to step out of our comfort zone and into a new stretch zone – for some that’s exhilarating but for many it creates resistance … almost like standing at the edge of a minefield.  We have to decide where to step first, and that requires knowledge, determination and courage. 


Let’s look at some of those ‘mines’ that cause us to resist change:

Where's Your Focus?

When you use your past to sabotage your present, or focus on the future to escape from it, you become entrapped in behaviours that don’t serve you. If you don’t leave your past where it belongs (mainly those parts of it that have hurt you) it will continue to damage and constrain how you live. If you continually worry about your future you’ll miss the things that are happening in your life right now.
