It's not the only hardest to make a change in your life. It's also hard to maintain the change, to integrate it into your life. On the way you will encounter obstacles, disappointments, doubts and even mistakes. It can be difficult not to get discouraged and surrender. Not to mention that you can find your daily life along the way. Many issues may arise that distract us from focusing on the change we have committed ourselves to doing.
In order to make the changes we have chosen part of our lives, we need to do this constantly, whether we feel interested or not. So how can we make changes?
The best way to stay on the go is to set up a system that will help you.
You can also use audit methods. Find a new way to look at the trays and disappointments that occur. Take the time to find a learning experience in the barrier. Change your expectations about your behavior – do not expect perfection. Recognizing that some of these results are inevitable and that the mistakes we make are part of the learning process. Sorry for yourself and rebuild your commitment to the change.
Do not allow you to make excuses or to blame external influences for this disappointment. Blame and excuse allows us to fall into "victims" and not take responsibility. The problem does not have an individual point of encouragement, but not to acknowledge it and allow us to believe that something outside of us is responsible. Accept flow as part of being human and keep moving on.
Personal liability. There are a few methods that you can use to keep in mind the maintenance of the change you've implemented. The first of these methods is the simplest: create a mantra-short, simple reminder of what you are trying to achieve. For example, if you are making a change around your eating habits, you could create a mantra that says: "Healthy practices create a healthy heart." Repeat this phrase often and especially when you find yourself moving into an old habit.
Another method is to write your commitment and review it regularly. This is the idea behind a vision. Take your vision (or change) on paper and look at it every day. You can send written commitments to strategic locations to help you focus. For example, icons in a refrigerator can help them with healthy eating habits or notes on your mirror can remind you of your commitment.
The goal is another way to create personal responsibility for your actions. Break the change into small steps and keep track of your progress. Be sure to celebrate each little step. It will build trust and create awareness of each part of the changes.
Self-renewal. It's hard to maintain the focus and energy needed to maintain changes when you let you run down. Hassle is an easy way to drain us and lose sight of our commitments. So it's important to organize activities that can recover and help you recover.
These actions vary for each individual, so you need to be aware of what you do to take care of yourself. Some have found retreat in nature, written in a diary or movement of useful activities for renewal.
While you can create activities that help you recover from shock, it may also be useful to have self-reliant practices that can prevent your feeling from running down. Creating practices like meditation or a normal exercise can help you reload before you even see what you need.
Your Customer Service. Sometimes you need other people to help you stay on target. You can create a team to support your change in two ways.
First, create a group with shared responsibility. This is the term behind a weight-loss or 12-step program. Sharing commitments with others who have similar goals can help you be committed. The others in the team can focus on you and even push you when you feel lack of motivation or when you recline a little. Have a forum to discuss feelings, obstacles, and self-confidence with others who understand can help overcome these barriers.
You can also create your own team of supporters by making a "public commitment." You do not need to send it to the world, but you can share your goals with friends and family members who believe in you and will support you when things get tough. Talking to these supporters can help you get an improvement. They can encourage you to stick to it.
It's important when it's important to change your life to be patient. The change takes time and may include temporary withdrawal and lack of motivation. Accept it and find ways to stay alone, knowing that the change you make is for the better. And above all, thank you for what you have and for the power you have that allows you to create your future.
