70% of people fail to achieve the goals they set. ~reliable planet
New Years has come & gone, the excitement has worn off and many have tossed their goals aside, yet again. Maybe next year will be the year?
The question is WHY is it so hard to make our goals a reality?
It’s not WILLPOWER and it’s not because people don’t care about their goals.
We’ve just been going about it from the wrong direction.
We’ve been sold a bunch of bullshit methods & WooWoo concepts over the years. I do love my hippie WooWoo shit, heck I was raised by hippie ski bums, however it has it’s time & place.
Over & over again we try to change habits with little success. One key pieces in the process of creating change is figuring out why we have the non-serving habits in the first place.
What is driving your non-serving behaviours?
Carl Jung’s famous quote sums it up quite nicely. “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
We all have an unconscious narrative. Unless you are spending time deep diving into your unconscious there are stories that are driving areas of your life in ways that will surprise you.
If there are areas of your life that aren’t working for you, there is a non-serving story attached to it.
See if you can catch what you are saying to yourself, if you really listen. This narrative you have is driving your actions, habits & behaviours.
An FYI, the brain responds well when you ask it questions.
You can ask yourself things like, what story do you want to be telling yourself about specific aspects of your life?
Who do you need to become in order to be show up in the way you want?
The more honest you can be with yourself the better.
The other thing to note, CHANGE IS HARD.
The brain has to work harder when it is doing something new. It resists change.
Know that it is hard, you will struggle & you don’t have to do it perfectly. You will hit bumps in the road, your brain will fight you along the way, it will likely be boring.
Show up, do the work.
Simplicity + Consistency WIN EVERY TIME
