Why Is It So Hard To Change… For Long?
People start coaching or counseling eager to jump in and make new things happen. That is admirable, and enthusiasm is certainly the catalyst for great things. We must have hope in order to even try to change.
We all start out with grand plans and make sweeping, dramatic gestures to mark our transition into a better life: Buying personal productivity solutions, new workout clothes, cutting up all the credit cards, throwing away the half eaten bags of Ruffles, making solemn promises to be nicer to your partner, or flushing the cigarettes down the toilet. Things are going to be different now. These rituals of change feel like the door to a new life, and we feel very pleased with ourselves for several days.
But then…. it gets frustrating. Things get hard, get annoying, get boring, or we get upset and sure enough — snap right back into our old patterns. It’s easy to feel discouraged and get tricked into believing that you can’t do it.
But you can, my friend. You most certainly can.
You can have it all. You can have better relationships, lose weight, save money, achieve your goals, be healthier, sleep better and feel happer.
Your ability to change your life is the same as everyone else’s. What is the key to making lasting change? Listen to this episode of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast and find out.
