the inevitability of change causes distress and unhappiness. As humans we need

to change and grow as our lives evolve and move on, and that can be very

upsetting, making us feel vulnerable. The beginning of our adaptive change is the

realisation that life can be different, better, happier, more fulfilling. But to make that happen, we need to

recognise the need to change.


For making change easier in your life it can be very helpful to do a course as a

Four Question Guide

Use this simple four question guide to help you decide if you need to make a change:

  1.  What do you want?
  2.  When do you want it?
  3.  What will you see, feel and hear when you have it?
  4.  What is your first step?

The answers to these questions will help you to fully understand what you want and guide your path to getting it.


Use the power of three

Do an inventory/checklist of three things you feel you need to change in your life and

prioritise actions for those three things over next three months.


Don’t do all at once; pace and plan. You can start again with a new checklist and actions for the following three

months and so on. Check in on your list on a monthly basis, and assess where

you are at. Check are you making progress. Its great if you are and celebrate

that by treating yourself.  Are you experiencing challenges and obstacles and

setbacks? This is normal with change, particularly if others close to you do not

agree with or appreciate why you are changing things in your life.


As a support for yourself, look for allies in friends and family and get help/moral support. Be

kind to yourself and look after your own needs as best you can
