But when conditions change, when people introduce new demands or different expectations, and when our ability to do becomes weakened by disease or injury, anyone’s mental strength can easily be exceeded and, therefore stretched, sometimes to breaking point.
When that happens, what we want is someone to give us that strength through empathy. But that depends on the experience, expertise, and availability of the advisor, and their ability to get into our private psyche. What we really need, however, is insight, a depth of understanding appropriate to the challenge.
Understanding Change offers you a formula to achieve just that. It shows you how to feel comfortable in new or challenging conditions and how to appreciate your own capabilities for examining and understanding them. In essence, it shows you how to be your own master. No one, not even the most astute professional, can ever be greater than you. They may know more because they searched more, a feat you can accomplish too. I, therefore, cannot assume I can advise you in this series of discussions, but I can show you how to conduct and advise yourself. Let’s start.
