My quiet January became dramatic because I let fear in. When you're trying to bring about change and everything is going nicely, fear would creep in and induce a lot of paranoia that's unnecessary. This comes in the form of self-doubt, overthinking and defensiveness. A working relationship became mired with hypotheticals and what-ifs.
Why good changes do not stick? Aside from resistance to change because of confusion, misunderstanding, lack of buy-in, addressing the emotional issues from the change dynamic is key.
Fear is the number emotion that will hold organizations and leaders back from their planned approach.
Courage and the absence of it, will make or break a change prospects.
If you let in fear for only a short time, you let paralysis in and overthinking which will derail you.
If you let in fear for a long time, you will renege on your commitments and undervalue your own worth.
If you let in fear intervene in your progress, you're undermining your achievements.
Address issues as they arise and not pre-empt them in a way that will sabotage your progress.
Trust me, once I realized it's all about fear, it' easy to manage the rest.
