Raise the rest of your life to meet you

Fear of change

“I hated that job, and I clung to that job.” The familiarity of that statement echoes true for so many of us — whether it’s work, a relationship, or a habit.

At 29, Peter Dinklage was a data processor, and he was miserable. Paralyzed at the thought of pursuing an acting career. He didn’t know what would happen, and that stopped him until he couldn’t stand it anymore. You, too?

The courage to make a change can only rise inside you — though sometimes the first spark comes from someone else. Peter, aka Tyrion Lannister in “Game of Thrones,” offers that spark in this moving commencement talk he gave at Bennington College.

Peter’s advice is brave: “Don’t bother telling the world you are ready. Show it. Do it. Trust me, the rhythm sets in…Raise the rest of your life to meet you.”

Are you ready for that change? Yes? Unstuck would like to help.

Change starts with a spark, but it happens through perseverance. By clarifying purpose. Building belief. Confronting obstacles. Reducing fear of failure. Devising a system for success.

“Making a Change,” a digital Life Course from the makers of the award-winning Unstuck app, will guide you through all of that. It will help you think about change differently so you can face and overcome the unknowns. It will serve as a touchstone so you can make changes in your life.

Interactive exercises are at the heart of this Life Course, making the results personalized to you.

  • You’ll discover what stops you from taking action.
  • You’ll stop seeing the unknown as a reason to quit.
  • You’ll pinpoint what your purpose is — the foundation for motivation.
  • You’ll build your belief so that fear of risk or failure won’t stand in your way.
  • You’ll create a simple plan and your own system of motivators to see things through.
