There are thought to be five stages we go through when facing a change as athlete. As we go through these stages, it is suggested that we progressively adapt to the change.

The five stages consist of:

  1. Denial: this refers to the initial fight against the new proposal of change
  2. Anger: feeling insecure and frustrated because of the new change.
  3. Dejection: the depressed state an individual feels when recognizing that a change is going to occur.
  4. Acceptance: knowing the change is going to happen and preparing for it.
  5. Learning: reflecting on the idea that change may be beneficial on performance.

How are you adapting to change?
