Dealing with change and keeping a positive mindset

Learn how you can get through any challenge in your life by changing your mindset and thinking positively.

When a roadblock comes in your way, stopping you from getting something that you want, it’s all about your mindset and how you react to change that determines how you’ll recover from things that you think are impacting you.

Every challenge is an opportunity. If you work through challenges, you’ll find you create and innovate in new ways you didn’t even think were possible.

When change impacts you, you might be feeling:

  • “It’s now hard for me to achieve my dreams and goals”
  • “I’m feeling depressed or upset”
  • “I’ve already put in so much effort and now this has made it harder”

There’s quite a lot of things that can go wrong, or unexpected things happen to us everyday of our lives. What you need to do is look at how you can work around restrictions and roadblocks.

Think: this isn’t going to stop me, I can work through this.

How to

  1. Allow yourself the time to go through the emotions – you will feel down or upset for a few days and that is normal as you go through the process
  2. Take a look back after a few days and create a list to write down all the things that are creating a block for you and then next to that write some solutions
  3. Find out how you can do the things you want to do more effectively by working through the roadblocks
  4. Keep thinking: I am strong, I can do this, I will find new ways
