If you have ever set a goal for personal or professional growth and change only to find yourself afraid of actually achieving that goal, you are not alone. Facing and transforming our fear of change is an essential and fundamental step in growth. Sometimes we are faced with the dilemma that what we wish to change, whether it our weight or behavior, serves us in some way. For example, shyness may be a protection from drawing too much attention to self. Over weight sometimes serves the same purpose. Social isolation can be a way to avoid potentially painful relationships, especially if we haven’t worked through past hurts or grief.
If you find these words particularly meaningful and would like to explore some strategies for facing and transforming those fears which may work against your positive change, tune into my next TRANZFORM U show, May 17, 2012 to be broadcast 4 to 5:30 pm on www.blogtalkradio.com/cay.randall.may or call into to listen using 818-431-8518.
My guest for this show will be radio show personality and sensitive, Michael Gogger. He and I will be joined by Jason Randall, who helps screen our calls and runs the on-line chat room during the show. Jason sometimes adds his unique intuitive wisdom to the on-line readings which we do on the show. We would like to hear from you even if you wouldn’t like to have a reading, perhaps you would just like to share your methods for eliminating fear of change from your life.
In my own case, I have learned how to maintain my healthy weight by getting over fear of overeating. When food is seen as a beneficial resource rather than a tempting trap, it is easier to make healthy choices at each meal. Your fears may be quite different, but each of us can relate to the need to reframe or rethink our resistance to positive, healthy change.
