How to commit to change

When we feel insecure, we tend to retreat to our comfort zones. Over time, that erodes our confidence and stops us learning, leaving us less able to adapt to change. Our comfort zones aren’t really safe at all: so how can we leave them?

You can learn to make choices that take you forward—to commit to change—by facing what makes you uncomfortable. And you need other people to help you along the way. With coaching and peer support, you can:

  • Identify and commit to the changes you want, be honest and give yourself space to dream.
  • Ask for the help you need by opening up to others and inviting them to be part of your story.
  • Use mindfulness and reflection to change how you respond to discomfort, and retrain yourself to see uncertainty as a gift.
