‘The Quicker You Let Go of Old Cheese, The Sooner you Find new Cheese’ – is a great quote in a great book entitled “Who Moved my Cheese” by Spencer Johnson, MD. It is a very simple, easy read to help you deal with change in your work and your life – or at least it makes it sound very simple.
For some, change seems unattainable. Fear and anxiety can take over and bring out all of our self-defeating thoughts about how we are incapable, not worthy, not smart enough, etc. Or, the anger and bitterness we are stuck in can leave us in the same bad place, always blaming others for the relationships we are in, without taking ownership over our own ability to make a difference.
If we can conquer the fear then we can realize our potential. We can make a difference and we can create the lives we want. We just need to take stock in ourselves, realizing our true capacity and support our weaker side that may get us stuck.
This is the perfect time to plan on getting rid of old cheese. We have about 6 weeks until the new year. What new cheese are you wanting, and what do you have to do to make it happen?
