So why change? There are many reasons change can be good (and sometimes bad) for you. Physical, social, mental, spiritual change, etc are all dependent on the habits that we develop over time. Sometimes we develop these habits intentionally like when we are learning an instrument and we’re getting our muscles/nerves to react a certain way (muscle memory) .
Other times we may develop time unintentionally like if someone unfortunately deals with so many untrustworthy people in his/her life that they form a defensive habits.
With persistence and perseverance change that is uncomprehending will begin to develop into habits and become comfortable over time. Just trust and have faith in yourself.
Most things will feel uncomfortable at first try. Even walking for a baby will feel uncomfortable in the beginning, but the baby will eventually feel comfortable over time and accomplish that goal. Take charge of your life…….One change at a time!
I challenge you to take action. I’m not just going to give you a few encouraging words, this is going to be interactive. I don’t want you to ‘feel’ motivated; I want you to BE motivated. How many times have you heard or read something that made you super excited and hyper, only to forget the idea within a handful of days? We’ve all done this, but why? If we know something is important what is preventing us from doing it?
There are three main points that stop us from doing. One, we don’t know where to start. Another reason is fear immobilizes us. The last point is the task may be important but not urgent.
The way to move out of these hindrances is to leave our comfort zones. Comfort zones ARE what prevent us from breaking old habits, forming new habits, and truly understanding ourselves.
One of my favorite quotes comes from “The 4-Hour Work Week” – by Timothy Ferriss. I highly recommend the book to anyone that hasn’t already read it.
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” – Timothy Ferriss
Change is not easy, but by going out there and doing what makes us feel uncomfortable in the short run, we can obtain a much bigger goal and achievement in the long run thanks to our emotional (or physical) struggle.
Stay tuned and good luck!
