Since I am an honest person, yes, yes it does. Now it depends on how hard from person to person. However, changing the way you do things or kicking bad habits will almost never be easy. We are creatures of habit by nature. So when making big lifestyle changes your essentially rewiring your brain.
Make Sure You Want To Change First
I have heard and seen this scenario way to many times. People see the benefits of whatever change their interested in and want those benefits. However, they really aren’t willing to give up what’s necessary to get there. If you want to change make sure you also want to get rid of the things that are holding you back.
The best way to destroy your own perception of yourself and your own self worth is to set yourself up for failure. Now failure will happen from time to time and that is normal. Yet, any intelligent person should make it the lowest possible outcome in any situation.
Tips To Make It Easier
Taking It Step By Step
An extremely valuable way to make change easier to break it down into smaller steps. This gives you the opportunity to reward yourself for small victories. Rewarding yourself for these small victories is pivotal in keeping a positive mindset. The more positive your perception of whatever change your working towards, the more likely you are of sticking to it.
Get A Support Network
This can mean a lot of different things for many people. However, for most this means your friends and family. If your doing something like quitting smoking, those closest to you should do their best to support you. Tell your friends and family that smoke that you can’t be around them when they are smoking. They should understand and if they truly care about you they will refuse to tempt you and definitely not offer them to you!
Still though I know that there are exceptions or just situations that you won’t be able to avoid. So if you think it will help try reaching out to a support group. Being around people who are going through or have been through it should help you keep on the right track.
I know I didn’t provide a ton of tips, but the two I did are probably the best. They really helped me in making a positive change for myself.
I hope this post helped someone out there. If you need more advice there are plenty of resources on this topic out there. Just don’t let reading about change stop you from actually doing it. I wish you all the best in your endeavors and true happiness!
