Despite the uncertainty most of us are feeling about the upcoming year, have you been working on making resolutions for 2022?
Research tells us the majority of us will not stick with those resolutions. This can lead to feelings of guilt and shame. I am talking about lifestyle and habit changes and the role your beliefs about yourself and your capabilities play in it.
Many people want to make life changes because it's causing them mental or physical distress. A massive predictor of your success in what you set out to achieve is based on a number of things...
It takes self awareness to address things in your life - it is hard to be as objective about ourselves as we need to be to make change. It can be helpful to ask a trusted friend or family member for feedback on your blind spots, especially in the areas you want to make change. We form ideas on how the world works as we grow up, we are taught by those around us how to handle challenges and what we are made of. These beliefs are the hidden stories that run the scripts of our lives. I would like to introduce you to choice. Someone wise once said "Beliefs are a choice and every choice can be changed." As humans, we are designed to learn and grow. When life gets messy and uncomfortable, we grow. You can get better at anything you set your mind to. We are actually quite adaptable.
Ask for help. Make a plan. Don't tackle everything at once. Pick one small thing at a time to work towards.
You TOTALLY have this! Your self doubt ends here.
We're here if you want to talk :)
