One of the hardest things about dealing with change is not knowing what’s ahead. As human beings, we like to have a level of certainty in our lives.
When things are unknown or unfamiliar, it can be very easy to start imagining different possibilities. Depending on our mental conditioning, the future we imagine can be exciting and inspiring, or it can be scary and uncomfortable.
Therefore, the better prepared we are when making a major change, the greater the chances the change will work out best for us. In sports, there is a concept called “The 5 P’s” which stands for, Perfect preparation prevents poor performance.
It is not different for you and I. If we’ve done our preparation prior to making a major change, we will avoid the risks that comes with any type of change.
