In ice skating class, we do pivots. Starting on the toe pick, we spin around using the other leg. We can go pretty fast, and it gets dizzying.
Just like change…
We get so wrapped up going in one direction. Even though we’re in a single direction, we may feel like we’re splintering off in many directions.
So how do we reverse this trend toward panic and overwhelm?
We merely switch directions.
It really IS that simple.
In ice skating, if we get dizzy pivoting in one direction we simply change and start spinning in the other direction.
Sure it may be awkward at first, you may be unsteady. But at least the old queasiness is gone.
And within this new direction, the dizzying array of confusion will subside. You will see things coming at you and moving away in an entirely different—opposite perspective.
How easy is it for YOU to change directions? How funny is that?
