Overcoming your own resistance
First of all, it's about overcoming one's own resistance: as I said, making a change is just the beginning of a process that may end up somewhere different than you thought.
Stures Holding on a once-bumped path without consideration for losses can lead to complete projects.
The Dale Carenegie Method
High self-motivation is not given to everyone. In any case, it is worth taking into consideration the benefits and advantages that the planned or desired change entails with the above-mentioned fears and resistances.
Of course, the sum of the positive aspects should be significantly larger than the sum of the negative ones. Since it is extremely difficult to quantify qualitative aspects, I suggest applying a variation of the Dale Carenegie method on the bouquet of risks and thereby relativizing the subjective feeling of anxiety.
Away with the difusen threats
For this, you only need to answer 2 questions (preferably in writing):
- What is the worst thing that can happen to you?
- How likely is it that this result occurs?
The advantage is that diffuse ideas now have a name and a threat index, which makes them easier to handle.
If you have a special security need, setting up a fallback solution can be helpful. You are designing the change process in such a way that you have the possibility to cancel the process at a few risk points.
This can include a certain financial reserve, which gives you enough air to rearrange after a "false start". This can be an option on a job that you can do, for example, if your freelance project goes bad, contrary to expectations. Incidentally, it can be very meaningful and effort-saving to engage a suitable coach, who accompanies the own change process.
Resistances in your environment
If you have no resistance or overcome it for you, do not be too happy; Your private and professional environment has more of it. If in doubt, have it next to friends and family Company with most likely three hierarchical levels and plenty of people to do:
Your colleagues, your employees, your superiors, as well as suppliers, internal such as accounting or controlling and external customers. You can already see from this list where the resistance can come from. What helps: good arguments.
