Why Is Change So Hard
𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐝!
Our minds have routines and habits and perceptions that make changing your behaviors and beliefs hard as fuck.
If you engage on the journey of change, then you need to be aware of your mind’s ways to sabotage your efforts: 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐝𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐭, 𝐚𝐧𝐱𝐢𝐞𝐭𝐲, 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧.
When we decide it’s time to step up to the plate and shift our self sabotaging behaviors, the mind will fabricate all sorts of self doubt, anxiety, and confusion. The reason being it’s behaviors are constructed from habits. In other words it has a difficult time grasping new ideas because it is filtering them through old paradigms.
𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬; 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐞𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥.
For example, if you regularly drink to cope with stress, and you decide to find a new coping method because of alcohol’s harms to your health and wellbeing, then you need to power through all of the little voices in your head that that try to maintain the old routine. Or if you prefer to use food for comfort the same applies. Just… ignore that self sabotaging voice and remember that you set your higher goals at a threshold moment. A moment when everything was clear to you what you truly desire out of life.
𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: Remember that your thoughts aren’t always accurate, especially in moments of high emotional volatility. Eventually the inner tension passes and clarity returns. Once the new habits become integrated there is little self doubt. Just persevere and things will shift like 𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘪𝘤.
