At any point in time, we’re either going through a transition, we just came out of one, or we’re about to go through one. How do we handle the difficult transitions in life? Today’s guest will show you how.

How to Navigate Life's Difficult Transitions with Brian Holmes

The title of the episode is “How to Navigate Life’s Difficult Transitions” and the title says it all. It’s one that truly applies to everyone. My belief is that all of us are either in a transition, just came out of a transition, or about to enter one.

In today’s episode, we discuss:

  • Why change is so scary
  • The four stages of transition
  • The secret ingredient of navigating transition
  • Why discontentment is healthy
