Sir Godfrey Gregg
It has been said that change is the only constant in life. Change is taking place everywhere around us, all the time. As we navigate the winds of change, we all need support: whether going through a divorce, recovering from an illness, embarking on a spiritual awakening or starting over in a new community.
All forms of change require us to learn new ways of being and functioning. One of the most valuable gifts you can give yourself during times of change is to find appropriate support. A basic understanding of the learning process that moves us through change will boost your ability to find meaningful support for every stage of your journey.
Humans move through three core stages in every area of change and growth – whether you are trying out a new sport or adjusting to life after losing a loved one. You may find yourself at a beginning stage in one area or your life and an advanced stage in other areas of your life. Success lies in being able to determine how your personal learning needs to be support with appropriate feedback, support or adjustment. When we get stuck in any one stage, growth stagnates.
