The final transition phase as defined by Frederick M. Hudson, coach and consultant, is called GO FOR IT. This is the time when we have renewed energy and drive in our personal life and/or career. We have experienced an ending like a redundancy, gone through the doldrums, spent time cocooning and getting ready and now, here we are at a brand new starting point. When we are at the end of a career or life phase we can't believe that we will ever feel renewed and re-energised but it is a cycle and eventually the wheel turns round.

Remember a transition cycle can be a mini or major cycle depending on what else is going on for you e.g. you could be starting a brand new decade or newly single after a break-up or divorce ( major) or getting a promotion within your company (mini)

Whatever has gone before, as you enter this next phase you will notice shifts and changes in your energy, confidence and courage to try out new things. There will be a feeling of fulfilment but you may also be challenged by all the things you want to achieve! Risk-taking also increases with your newly-found confidence.

The main results I want my clients to achieve in the GO FOR IT phase are reaching the new goals they have set and enjoying the experience of success, however they define it. As individuals we can differ in our perception of success. We may want to redefine success, especially if we notice that our definition is outdated and/or based on other people's views rather than our own e.g. our parents, boss, friend or partner. The important thing is to celebrate being successful. High achievers are prone to skip the 'celebration' step and swiftly move onto their next goal!

You may be one of these and recognise this trait. I would like to encourage you to stop, take in what you have achieved and mark it in a way that has significance for you.

  • Here are some tips for navigating the high energy "go for it" phase:-
  • explore new networking groups and events
  • find ways to improve your time management skills to get more done
  • make sure you block out some work-free evenings and weekends
  • investigate which new professional organisations you could join

Autumn is a time of transition. The children have gone back to school, young people begin a new university term and we have arrived in a new season.

I want to share my thoughts on the topic of "letting go."

We may think we are ready to let go, but for many of us, when the moment arrives there is a heaviness and level of resistance that shows up.

Last autumn, I set myself the task of sorting out my storage. I had been living back in London for a year but I still had some personal items stored away.

Letting go of this personal "stuff" was a process because when I connected to "my things" they made me feel SECURE but I didn't really need anything that was there for my new life. In fact I had the urge to buy new things to match my NEW ENERGY.

My storage represented the parts of my OLD LIFE that I was NOT ready to let go of.

I am sharing this with you because there may be some exciting shifts that you are ready for but if you are still "holding on" to the past in any way then the new can't come in fully.

Here are some questions for you to think about:-

  • What are you holding onto that keeps you feeling safe and secure?
  •  What are you ready to let go so you can finally start a new life chapter this Autumn?

Once you decide to let go of some "stuff" you will start to feel completely different!





SO if you are still holding onto things, people, places... even after you KNOW deep down that you should let them go, now is the PERFECT TIME to release this old energy.

Many of my clients tell me that they know they need to leave their husband/partner /job and move on but they feel very insecure about making the transition. What's holding them back is FEAR; fear of the unknown, fear of being alone and it is scary. We all want to feel loved and secure and supported.

The good news is that you don't need to continue to carry the shadows of the past around with you and by facing your fears with support they will diminish and be replaced with new feelings of excitement. I also use a new process in my work with clients that helps clear away fear and release anxiety.

If you know you are holding onto the past and you are feeling READY to begin the process of letting go contact me   now to find out how I can support you, so that you can start creating YOUR Vibrant Life NOW!
