Accept and celebrate some bits of it, explore and engage with other bits. This is key to viewing change as non-threatening and being able to thrive in it.
Focus not only on what has changed but also what has stayed the same, what’s in your control and what isn’t. This will help to stabilise your reactions to uncertainty and remain unfazed and unflappable.
Take ownership of your development and be proactive. It’s down to you to make change happen so grab all new opportunities available.
Focus on the number and type of relationships you have. An effective professional network gives a greater tolerance for change and an increases your readiness for it.
Work tirelessly towards your goals, changing paths in the short-term in order to succeed long-term. Be optimistic about the present and the future.
