- Achieving personal change
Many of us at some point in our life decide that we want to change something about ourselves that we are not completely happy with. For some people, the decision is to change something about their lifestyle, for others it's something about their personal habits. You might decide that you want to change your communication style or that you want to develop a new quality within yourself, such as cultivating greater patience or focus.
How often have you found that making the decision to change seemed to be the relatively easy part of the process - but actually achieving the change can be quite elusive. Breaking habits that may have been with us for years is certainly not easy.
For example, have you ever made a New Year's resolution to change something in yourself - and at the time of making the decision, you were full of resolve and determination. Maybe you resolved that you were going to exercise more, or you were going to eat less take-away food, or you were going to spend more time with your family. And yet, within a couple of weeks you were back to your old ways and eventually gave up trying to make the change because it all seemed just too hard?
