The first step in successful change is letting go. Letting go of the past, expectations, what has always been, is a critical part of the change journey. Without letting go of the past, we cannot make space for what is to come. We have a hard time doing this, however, and letting go brings up a lot of very negative emotions that people typically want to avoid. So how can we better manage our thinking around letting go, and our desire to have control over our circumstances? I talk through 2 examples I've used in client and personal situations and what to expect with the negative emotions that can come up in this stage of change.
