1. Know that life transitions happen naturally, because they indicate to you that you’ve mastered one stage and it’s time to now move on and grow, because life itself is growth.

2. Know that although you don’t know how you’re going to conquer this next stage, you’ve conquered every stage prior to this, and you have the tools to enter unknown situations and figure them out — it’s what you’ve done all your life.

3. As you grow older, life slowly stops giving you as many clues as to when it’s time to transition and grow, so if you want to keep growing, you’re gonna have to seek out new unknown situations yourself. The more time you spend diving into the new, and not trying to bring the old back, the more you’ll keep on growing; but it’ll take more and more effort the older you get.
