Since I have started to know what “C” stands for, better yet give my other insights about the next five letters in the word “CHANGE”.
There will be Chaos because there will be a lot of Hindrances as you come along with this new transition in your life, love or business. People will definitely be uncomfortable with the “new” idea that you have presented and you will most likely get violent reactions and negative feedback. There will definitely be a turmoil and you will start to question this idea.
Then, you will experience ambivalence.
You will suddenly question your own idea and have some doubts about it. You will also feel bad about your decision and might feel depressed about it as well.
This must be the toughest part of CHANGE because if you don’t have strong will and won’t believe in your own strength, you will be disheartened and might lose hope and won’t pursue with what you really want.
During the ambivalence stage, you have to be optimistic and you need to be strong. If not, you will be swayed and might not go on with the next step.
If you find other people not satisfied with your ideas, go to them and Negotiate.
During the Negotiation stage, learn to be open-minded and keep your calm attitude. You have to listen more, instead of talking. You were already given the chance to present your own thoughts and it’s time for you to know how others perceive about those.
You might hear opinions that can hurt you and your ego, nevertheless, consider it as constructive criticism instead of destructive. Try to know their point of view and ask them if they have any idea on how to avoid such negative things.
Learn to compromise.
Sometimes, you need to swallow your pride as well just to make things better.
After ironing things with your subordinates or the people involve, you get to land on the next stage which is the Guts stage.
You need to have the guts to go along with this transition and find the courage to eliminate the things that needs to be eliminated.
Sometimes, you should also have the audacity to implement this new negotiated idea. Yes, sometimes, you have to be daring and fearless as well.
Next would be the Evaluation stage. In this stage, you will know if you went back to Chaos stage or you have been successful.
During this stage, you will evaluate if you have Excelled or you need to formulate a new idea and you have to Exit.
Remember, this is a cycle.
Chaos- Hindrances- Ambivalence- Negotiate- Gut-Evaluation (Excel or Exit)
Tell me how you feel about this chronicles? Does it make sense?
