Face it, everything changes. That is just how it is supposed to be. And to be successful in periods of change, requires several things. I’ll highlight my several key things to remember but to get it from an expert, click on www.First30Days.com, a powerful and inspiring site put together by Ariane de Bonvoisin; be sure to check out her nine principles of surviving change, share your story of change and sign up for her newsletter.
Here is what guides me:
1. Stay positive and find the positive, not the negative, in the change. There are always positive events if we look for them; committing to feeling bad doesn’t do any good. As I like to call it – be on the “hunt for opportunities.”
2. Know you will land on your feet. Trust that you have the abilities and the strength to come out stronger, better, happier or more successful. Believing it is critical to your success.
3. Surround yourself with others who can help you. Periods of change should send you looking for help, rather than trying to solve things on your own. Most people feel that their change situation is unique to them. Most situations have happened to others – and they may have wisdom to help guide you through the process. Find help.
Change happens. That is just the way of the world. Be optimistic, welcome it and be better because of it. Whether job hunting, managing or watching your family grow up, find the good. Celebrate the positive and commit to being optimistic.

Use the tools to be great in times of change.
