Has a sudden change taken away everything you knew? 

You’re not alone: I’ve had so many conversations with people over the last few months who have been forced into major change during COVID-19. I’ve talked to people who have been furloughed, laid off, or who now have a completely new job description that feels mostly like damage control. 

Change is never easy, especially when you have no control over it. But there are tools that can help you navigate it to come out on the other side even stronger.

Today, on The Next 24 Hours podcast, I want to share those tools with you. This episode is essentially what I tell everyone on the phone who I’ve been talking to!

I recorded this episode specifically for those of you who have been laid off recently, but it can apply to any sudden change that you didn’t choose—whether you’ve had an abrupt change in your job description, been diagnosed with an illness or are grappling with a loss.

My hope is that this episode will help you reframe your outlook when a change you didn’t choose comes out of the blue and into your world. 

On this episode, I’m walking you through:

  • The difference between shock and wonder, how you can have more of the latter
  • A strategy to rebuild your confidence when you’re knocked off your feet 
  • How to make sure your next job opportunity is even better than your last
  • The mindset you have to have in order to keep moving forward when everything has changed

If that sounds like something you need to hear, tune in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Google Play—or, share it with someone you know who is in the thick of change and needs some inspiration.
