7 Elements To Permanent Change

Posted on 06. Apr, 2010 by in Uncategorized

How come making a change is so hard, difficult and challenging?

I believe it’s because we simply haven’t been given the process to make effective,      permanent change.  Without identifying these 7 elements, you’re likely to sabotage your success.

Here’s the 7 Elements to Change:

1. Identify and clearly state your goals. I love the SMART formula, Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time Measurable

2. Desire: How motivated are you in attaining your goal on a scale of 1-10 (10 highly motivated).  If it’s less than a 8, I recommend working on your motivation first.

3. Belief: Create a future vision of yourself already attaining your goal.  What are you doing in this vision? What do you hear yourself saying to yourself? What are others saying to you?  How do you feel?  Include all of your senses in how you’re thinking, feeling, seeing, tasting and hearing.

4. Identification: Who do you currently identify with the same problem or challenge?  Also, who do you identify who’s successful at your goal?

5. Self Sabotage: What are you self sabotaging behaviors?  What new actions are you choosing to take instead?

6.  Repetition: What habits are currently holding you back from reaching your goals?  What new habits are you creating to reach your goal?  Remember, it only takes 21 days to create a new habit.

7. Self Talk: What are you currently telling yourself about reaching your new goals?  Is your self talk negative?  Or positive and pumping you up?

I’ll be going into more detail of each element in the next blog.  Until then, a great resource to jump start you into learning the elements of change is an blog talk radio show by Anastasia Netri who interviewed  Andrea Spence on April 5th 2010.
