A recent survey polled men and women across the United States to discover what major life changes they are planning to make in the New Year. The survey, conducted by Identigene (www.DNAtesting.com), found that nearly half (46 percent) of Americans are planning to make one or more major life change in 2014. For many, these changes can be difficult to confront. Here’s some advice to help make the process easier.
Stress and nervousness is common
Among those surveyed, nine out of 10 people say they are nervous about making their major life change. This nervousness is normal. Just remember, even though changes can be difficult to confront, they are vital to personal development.
Twenty percent of those surveyed said they lacked confidence they could actually accomplish their change. Taking even small steps toward your goal will help you see progress, overcome nervousness and build confidence.
You are not alone. Of those surveyed, more than half (59%) plan to speak with a family member or friend as a resource for helping them make this change. A close friend or family members can be a great source of emotional support during this time of change. In fact, someone you know may be going through a similar change.
