Are you creating change?
For some people, change is scary. It conflicts with our daily routines and leaves doubt in our minds that everything will be okay. In terms of personal development, however, there is no greater occurrence than change. It forces our brains to think differently and our minds to grow at an extremely high rate. Below are some tips I have compiled to create change in your life. Make sure you pick your favorite tip and instill it as part of your everyday life. Enjoy.
- Know what you want. Make it exact and specific. Write it down and be clear about what you want and why you want it. What do you want?
- Keep promises. Most importantly, keep promises and appointments with yourself. If you set a goal or have a deadline, stick to it. This will get you in the proper mindset to make significant changes in your personal lifestyle.
- Sit quietly. Even if it’s for five minutes each day, sit quietly and turn off your brain. This will help prioritize your thoughts and what’s important to you. Create these small disciplines for yourself and hold yourself accountable for completing them regularly.
- Replace bad habits. Many people want to quit smoking or lose weight. Instead of just cutting out something (ex: smoking), replace it with something more beneficial. For instance, if you are trying to lose weight, every time you have a craving for sweets, have a piece of fruit instead. This will subconsciously replace this craving with a healthy one. What is a bad habit that you can do without?
