I love the expression: ‘the only constant in life is change’.
That makes you wonder why we have such a hard time changing.
In nature, we see change constantly.
Change is required to ensure life.
And yet many people struggle with change. Mostly because our brain wants to keep us in the situation that is known, in which we don’t need to think too much, in which autopilot serves us best.
So how do you change?
First, you’ve got to want it. There has to be a need to change. As long as there is no desire nor necessity it’s almost impossible or the change won’t be profound, and you will soon slip back into your old habits.
Second you need to create a better alternative. The beauty of creating a better alternative is that it doesn’t need to be a reality yet. It can happen in your mind.
You can imagine how your life would be if you change.
How you would feel better.
How your problems would disappear.
This is an important step in the process. As long as you can’t visualize what your future will be after the change, your mind will block you, and as you know everything starts in your mind.
You need to provide your mind a clear and better alternative.
And last but not least.
Not everyone is capable of changing by themselves. Most people need help, guidance, or at least some encouragement.
Don’t be afraid to involve others in your process of change.
You can do it by yourself, but it will take much longer and it will be much harder.
Now, do you still think it’s hard to change?
