Have you ever tried to change a habit…or start a new DAILY practice….SUCH AS…a new workout program, eating healthy, or blogging, ONLY to end up falling off the wagon at some point?
You and I both know that “change” does not come magically just because you decided to get on a treadmill one day. (or for 21 days).
I have discovered that changing a habit is much muuuuuuch more possible when we understand the cycle of change and the transitional process that occurs naturally (despite our best laid out plans and well intentioned efforts).
We desire to be better people and THAT requires change.
We experience change when we put efforts towards TRANSITIONING from a current state of being (from what we currently know and have always done) to a future state (what we desire to be, do and have).
In order to arrive at a desired “better”/new way of being, it is important for us to view change as a process.
We need to break CHANGE down into its individual components so that we can (at any point in time) pin point where we are…and therefore….have a better handle of how to get ourselves back on track through CONSTANT CUSTOMIZATION and review.
You can also say that successful change also requires successful change management.
In fact I have discovered that the management of change is actually what increases the chances of change rather than change itself. Not sure if that makes sense, but lets break it down. (more…)
