3rd Step to Creating Long-Lasting Change

I dreamt I was in my car at a four-way stoplight intersection. I’m frustrated because we aren’t moving. It seems like we’ve been sitting and sitting, with the light turning from green to red and back to green again and not one car has budged. I can’t see ahead to see what’s going on or what the hold-up is.

Finally, my frustration peaks and I decide to get out of my car and walk! I don’t know where the heck I’m going to go but I am determined I’m leaving my car behind! I am not going to sit here any longer.

I open the car door and step out. As I begin to take a few steps I notice that I can’t lift my feet. It feels as if they are glued in place. I look down and I am standing in mud. The thickness of the mud is creating a suction preventing my feet from moving.

That dream felt so real. When I woke my heart was racing and my body was filled with anxiety and frustration over what had just occurred.

And then it hit me. Like a brick. “Oh my gosh, this dream is a clear illustration of how I am feeling in my life!”

Any fear I had around moving forward vanished. In an instant I knew I could no longer hold back in taking the steps necessary to create the next phase of my life.

That dream was the prelude to the start of my business as a career coach.

When you’re feeling pulled to make a change in your life, it can feel a little like jumping off a cliff.


It also can feel a little frustrating, especially when you don’t have a clue what it is you’re supposed to do next.

When you’re in a Mid-Life Transition and wanting to create Long-Lasting Change, you really do have to reach a place where you can no longer tolerate things as they are. When you get to that point, you will do whatever it takes to create the change necessary.

“You will avoid change until the pain of staying where you are exceeds the fear of moving forward.”


You might find it helpful to acknowledge and understand that as a human being you are wired for safety. So anytime you are undertaking change you are going to have a certain level of fear. It is instinctual. It is nature’s way of protecting you and keeping you safe.

If you’ve been following along with me, then you’ve already done some of the pre-work of Creating Long-Lasting Change when in Mid-Life Transition.

Thank you to all of you for the response to my last post — it was huge! It was shared almost 80 times and liked by almost 1,000 people – WOWZA! Apparently, this is resonating with a lot of you and for that, I am thrilled!

Now to recap the Steps to Creating Long-Lasting Change when in Mid-Life Transition:

Step 1:  Review your life and release what no longer serves you.

Step 2: Identify the elements, aspects and values that are imperative for you to have a life of true joy and fulfillment.

Step 3: Create an Inspired Plan.

The first two steps have paved the way for you to now create a plan of action that is connected to your deepest desires and values. When a plan comes from that place, your motivation and desire to create the change in your life is undeniable. You are unstoppable. There won’t be anything that can get in your way when you have that kind of vision and clarity.

I guarantee it.
