“The greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we could become.”Ben Herbster<br />
Although you can make a positive change in your life at any time most people get an extra dose of enthusiasm around this time of the year. That’s only natural. But how do you go about making changes that will stick? Here are 9 Principles of Actions that will help you to stay on track and help you overcome or avoid some of the most common problems that people encounter when they are trying to make a change.<br />
Principle # 1 : Choose something YOU really want.<br />it is a lot better to focus on what YOU really want. Both to steer your life in the direction you yourself want and to create positive internal motivation instead of external pressure you feel you have to live up to. By thinking and by experimenting and just trying things out will make that change stick. .<br />
Principle # 2 : Choose a main focus.<br />Think about what area of your life that you really want to focus on. It may be the area you know deep down that needs to most improvement. Or the area that you think you will reap the greatest rewards by improving.<br />
Principle # 3 : Find a way that fits you.<br />Different things fit different people. Experiment and find what works for you and what fits your personality. This will make it a lot easier to stick to your positive change and develop <br />a relaxed consistency.<br />
Principle # 4 : Set the goal but focus on the daily process.<br />Focus on the process and you will be a lot more relaxed and prone to continue than if you stare yourself blind on the potential results that never come as quickly as you want to and puts you on an emotional rollercoaster from day to day.<br />
Principle # 5 : Let other people help you out.<br />You can also tell people your goals – face to face, via email, on Facebook or your blog etc. – to get accountability and motivation to take action. And you don’t have to go it alone. Finding someone – an accountability buddy – who wants to make the same change that you want can make things easier.<br />
Principle # 6 : Use laziness to your advantage.<br />I also know that I am too lazy to go to the gym or go out running three times a week. So I workout at home. This has helped me to have very good consistency. Such small, invisible barriers can have a great impact on your daily life in the long run. Remove them or use them or to your advantage.<br />
Principle # 7 : Use reminders in your environment.<br />Simply write down your goals on paper and put them where you can’t avoid seeing them every day. Your fridge, bathroom mirror and workspace are such places.<br />
Principle # 8 : Don’t beat yourself up when you slip.<br />The important thing here is to not be too hard on yourself and keep on beating yourself up for a week. That could certainly lead to giving up altogether. Instead, learn what you can from the experience so you don’t have to repeat it too many times. Then get back on the horse again the next day. And keep going.<br />
Principle # 9 : Take one small step today.<br />Don’t get stuck in planning. Or thinking that you will get started tomorrow or next week. Get the ball rolling instead. Do that today by just taking one small step towards what you want.<br />
I hope these principles will be helpful to you. When you are in distress, check to see if you are violating any of these principles, or if viewing the situation through the filter of these principles creates a shift for you. Be well. <br />
