Three Steps to Easy Change

Are there things about yourself that you'd like to change? 

Your weight, your habits, and maybe even your outlook on life? 

We are trained to think that change is hard, that it takes time. But it really doesn't have to be. 

I'm here to argue that lasting change happens in an instant. 

I understand that this goes against mainstream belief. Most people believe that change has to be a struggle. We expect to try and fail numerous times before ultimately giving up or succeeding. 

Think about this - how many people do you know who struggle with their weight? They want to make a healthy change by getting in shape, but the change never seems to happen. 

What is it in your life that you want to change? Do you have inches to lose? Do you want to have more energy? Maybe a hobby, or a new outlook? Do you have a pair of jeans that you want to fit into? 

What is keeping you from making this change in your life? 

According to professional speaker and author, Tony Robbins, it's the preparation for change that takes time. In the end there's a single instant when the change occurs. 

Here are the 3 steps to instantly create a lasting change and a new you. 

Step #1: Believe that something must change. 
Do you sort of want to get into shape, or do you absolutely have to lose the weight? Does dropping a few pounds sound good, or is living another day in your current body simply unbearable? In order to make a lasting change you must believe wholeheartedly that things must change.

What's imperative is to finding the change that absolutely must occur. If you're not ready to overhaul your entire life, then don't set out to do so. But change what your'e ready to change. Could you workout once per week? Add breakfast? Spend 10 minutes stretching? There's no goal too small - in fact, the smaller the goal, the better opportunity you have to achieve it. Believe something must change, then change that something. 

Step #2: Believe that you must change it.
It is vital that you take full responsibility in making the change rather than assigning responsibility elsewhere. Sure, others may help you, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to want this change enough to make it your personal mission - no one else can do it for you. 

This is why I think a coach is so imperative - but so misunderstood. We're tempted to think that having guidance takes away from the success of the achievement, but nothing can be further from the truth. We must do the work ourselves, and the coach is there to simply push us to our full potential, far beyond the limits we set for ourselves.  

Step #3: Believe that you can change it. 
Don't let past failures get you down. The truth is that you are capable of amazing things when you put your mind to it. Believe that you are able to lose weight or to make any other positive change in your life. 

Why do most people fail to make change stick? They rely on willpower. This works for awhile, but you'll soon revert back to what's comfortable. The solution? 

Again, change what you are comfortable with. 

We are motivated by two things: 1) to avoid pain and 2) to gain pleasure. When you want to change a behavior pattern the key is to associate pain with the behavior that you don't want and pleasure with the behavior that you do want. 

You know that you want to lose weight and that to do so you need to quit eating comfort food late at night. You also know that you need to start exercising on a regular basis. Up until this point your brain is trained to associate pleasure with eating comfort food late at night and to associate pain with exercise. 

It's time to retrain your brain to feel good about exercise and to feel bad about eating late at night. Think about all of the negative things about being overweight and connect these unpleasant thoughts to your late night snack. Now think about all of the wonderful things about being in shape and connect these pleasant thoughts to exercise.
