Ever heard of the quote “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you”? There is some real truth in this quote.
If you’re working towards changing habits and find you’re knee deep in the challenge of making the change stick, then I think you will find some real value in today’s blog post.
How To Create Lasting Change
Many people talk a lot about wanting to change habits but when it comes to actually making permanent change, they often find it a challenge to stick with it long enough to get there.
Perhaps you had some really good first few days but by day 3, you are DONE with the new you, done with the new diet, done with the lifestyle change, done being on time, done getting up earlier… whatever it is!
Because you have to reprogram your subconscious mind in order to make it a permanent habit.
Shift Your Paradigm
If you’re into personal development and you listen to Bob Proctor you’ll often hear how you need to shift your paradigm in order to create long-lasting new habits. It’s true.
My thought is YOU CAN absolutely change things. You can change your habits once you break through the glass ceiling of what’s holding you back inside your subconscious mind.
But in order to do that, you first need to break out of doing what is comfortable. And that part is not easy.
There will be days early in the process when you want to give up and go back to what you were doing before you decided to make these changes.
That’s because your subconscious mind wants to protect you. It wants you to feel “normal and safe” again.
In most cases, taking a step or two backwards from your progress also means going back to feeling pain again, that same pain you’re trying to free yourself from.
Ever been disappointed you’re not losing weight, upset that you’re always late for appointments, disorganized and overwhelmed because you don’t prepare? You need to shift your paradigm in order to make the change stick for good.
How To Make Lasting Change Stick
I recently made some changes in my routine and after a few days of trying to merge my old habits with the new ones, I burned myself out.
All because I was trying to stay up late and get up early. Not to mention I was already running low on steam from being sick.
Lack of sleep and illness finally caught up to me and soon I was back in the old routine again. My whole day started out being late because I woke up late and the cycle was starting to repeat itself.
What I recommend for you if you want lasting change, is take small deliberate steps towards your goal and implement them quickly. If you try and make too many changes too fast, you’ll struggle and more often than not you’ll quit.
