Tip for the Month: Making Changes
Last month we discussed Chaos Theory
and that it is about finding and identifying patterns in what appears
to be confusion. Our lives operate in a similar fashion. Whether we
call them habits, patterns of behaviour, paradigms or belief systems
we have to be able to recognize them before we can make some changes.
Here are some of the things you can do
to make changes in your patterns:
Take a long hard look at figuring
out what your own limiting beliefs and subsequent patterns may
Visualize a new positive way of
behaving and begin to rescript and reframe. In other words
create an image of what you want things to be like and state it
in a way that this has already occurred. Envision this.
The best way to break a habit is
to drop it.
Once something (e.g. an
addiction) has been terminated, it is important to replace the
activity or behaviours with something more positive. Be careful
that the new pattern isnít just as destructive as the old.
Write down your affirmations ten
times every day for twenty-eight days.
One day at a time but commit to
doing the new behaviours for three months.
Set small milestones and targets
and keep track.
Celebrate every day.
