Transition Embraced: Searching For Opportunitiy In Challenge by DrFrankLayman
Transition feared is abysmal
Transition anticipated is infinite
Given the proper mentor and perspective transition is an opportunity for growth, achievement and success DFL
I chose to define Transition in terms of development evolution passage progress
Many fear it because transition Is difficult – growth always is.
Recently I Lectured on Positive Transition To Military personnel transitioning to the Civilian Workforce
I challenged them to think differently about the U know they face ahead of them
To see transition as a challenge and acknowledge that Challenges to allow for growth and opportunity
To go out with enthusiasm a plan and an adaptable mindset.
Not to just accept the conventional transition of getting a job but to consider transforming into and entrepreneur.
Not to accept the conventional definition of an entrepreneur but to consider my definition
One who finds a way to get compensated for their passion and happiness.
Then consider a team behind their endeavor, one that has the experience and tools to increase the probability of success.
I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.’ Muhammad Ali
We have to be realistic and understand transition takes time but I have the benefit of having gone through some tuff transitions and I have discovered
Small steps in my journeys have lead me to extraordinary places. DFL
Remember you have to include yourself, don’t wilt or retreat during this process
If you see the world as them and me you’ll always be excluded if you see it as us you’ll always be included DFl
That said we must dream and work.
Your not who you were which allows you to be something more DFL
My humanity is incessant self overcoming. Friedrich Nietzsche
No matter the transition you face now or in your future prepare yourself daily because they are coming and they don’t stop it’s like standing at the shore and meeting the waves you have to be ready to face the relentless surf with mindful intent and you will either struggle against it or learn to play in it – that is a choice
Don’t let your ego isolate you from the people and organizations that can help you. Out of pride we sometimes make the wrong decision not to seek help.
I want you to be self reliant but also capable of networking and reaching out to others. It is a complex tight rope to walk but becoming skill can make the difference of falling or moving forward.
Finally don’t let anyone pigeon hole you look at the opportunities and be confident your skills can be transposed.
Don’t let the critics dictate your dreams.
Many dreams are symbolic and at the same time real because reality is shaped by belief and perception DFL
