#080: The Four Stages of a Successful Transition [Podcast]


Four Stages

Whether it’s career, relationships, church, or just life in general, how do we know when we are in transition? How do we identify and embrace when a season is coming to an end? What does the process look like, and how can I be successful in navigating change?

In this podcast episode, I want to share with you The Four Stages of a Successful Transition.

Over the course of my own life, I can identify several times I’ve experienced significant transition. As I reflect, I clearly see there were four specific stages through which I had to navigate completely before I was able to arrive at the next level of my life.

4 Stages of a Successful Transition:

1. Discontent:
…..What I’m presently doing is no longer satisfying. There’s something greater God has called me to.

2. Disconnect:
…..I have to let go of/disconnect from anything from my past that is hindering me from pursuing what lies ahead of me.

3. Discovery:
…..What is most important? Am I advancing the cause of God in my life?

4. Deployment:
…..Engaging in/actually doing what I’ve now discovered as my new avenue. This is a total step of faith!

Closing Thoughts:

Are you in a transition or season of change right now? What stage do you feel you’re in?

God has invited you on a journey and the entire process has multiple stages. Walk it out – – your next level is awaiting you!
