Pause Ask Choose contd.

Pause – When you stop fighting change, you gain the space you need to observe and learn. Acknowledge the energy you expend when fighting change. Like rebooting a computer, it takes a minute to reset.

Ask – Reframe your situation, and reset your perspective. Ask yourself how you want to ride the change. Find your purpose.

Choose – Take what you’ve learned and recover. In the midst of daily uncertainty, control your reaction to change and choose your next step. Resiliency doesn’t return you to your former self, but by choosing to move forward, you learn the essence of being change-proof.

Resilience does not ward off change, nor does it shield you from the pain change can cause. Instead, by pausing, asking, and choosing, you can navigate the stress of change.
