Are you good at letting go of the old?  You are not alone.

Even when the old does not serve us, it’s difficult to let it go.

The old is familiar, we know how to be, how to get what we want in the old (even if we can only have part of what we want).

Moving to something new, puts us into the unknown.  It requires a leap of faith. I know when “the unknown” starts knocking on my door, my first reaction is to try and get back in control. Is that true for you too? We crave the familiar even if the familiar is not meeting our needs. To make change, we must really have a compelling reason to do so.

The next time you want to change something in your life, use these three steps to creating a compelling vision.

Step 1: Get clear about what you desire.  Go ahead, write it down, doodle it, or create it in a collage.

Step 2: Think about what the change will bring you. Create a powerful vision of the new possibilities. Engage all of your senses, see yourself in the new, listen to what the new sounds like, feels like and even tastes like. By creating a compelling powerful vision, it becomes impossible to live in the old. When we have a picture of something so compelling, we have more energy and motivation to move towards it.

Step 3: Create affirmations to bring this new life in.  An affirmation is a statement that you say to reprogram your mind to think in a new thought pattern.  Such as, “I deserve to have…”, or “Money comes easily and freely to me”.

Change is always easier when we know why we are leaving the old and how the new will offer us so much more in our lives.  What I know is that while change may be a challenge, staying in a life that is unfullfiling will not lead to fulfillment and joy.
