This week, coach Julia Seal dives into the topic of Change and Change Management as it applies to us and changing ourselves on our happiness coaching journey.
We explore why change is hard, why we believe "You can't teach an old dog new tricks" and we find out why it's just so difficult to stick to our goals, our New Year's Resolutions - why we're not like Billy Ocean's song "When the Going gets Tough..."!
Discover how we continue to add to our unhappiness and emotional suffering every day just by resisting the Reality of Change. How resisting the reality of impermanence, one of Buddha's 4 Noble Truths, gets us stuck in the Circle of Chaos and Pity City. Knowing how and why our brains resist change holds a key secret for us.
Then, find out why changing ourselves is actually NOT HARD > why we're actually good at it... and how to use our current change skills for our happiness coaching!
Use the discoveries in Neuroscience, led by William James and Michael Merzenich, to change how we think about our brains in change and how we can use this knowledge to further our self coaching.
Then... we "add wood to the fire" just as experienced meditators do, in order to understand why "getting used to being uncomfortable" is such a vital skill in your happiness - why "discomfort is the currency of your dreams.
Finally, learn how to coach yourself "over the edge" of your changing horizons by understanding the world of Edge Work from ORSC team coaching - Julia shares an example here from her own self-coaching around procrastinating her To-Do List.
And of course, learn more about how the Midlife transition of Menopause is your best opening for this work of change - your best time for metamorphosis, your best chance for deep Happiness, ever!
Lastly, Julia briefly wraps up the 17-part Negative Emotions mini-coaching journey within Series 1: Defining - Assessing - Visioning - just so we can see where we are before we embark on our next exciting step.
" May you be Happy, May you be Free - there is no better time to coach together!"
