The reasons why people say they want to change but never seem to break through can happen are vast.
But the simple reason? This can be broken down into 6 areas…
1. THEY LACK CLARITY OF VISION
What it really looks and feels like to be where they want to be. Without clarity of where you want to go on the map, how do you ever expect to get there? This must be YOUR vision, not the vision of anyone else, or what you think is expected of you. YOU and ONLY YOU should be at the centre of what a meaningful and fulfilling vision looks like to YOU. Many people sabotage their success because their goals and visions aren’t their own, they are what they think they ‘should’ achieve, not what they most DESIRE deeply as an individual to achieve.
2. THEY DON’T HAVE ANY SORT OF TIME FRAME TO AIM TOWARDS
This is key to see progress and make the changes you wish to make measurable. Without this measurement, what will give you the drive to make it happen NOW?! It’s like saying I want to lose 10 kgs but never setting a time frame of checking in to measure your progress. That’s where the ‘I’ll just start on Monday” kicks in, and we all know how elusive that ‘Monday’ is don’t we?
3. THEY DON’T KNOW WHY THEY REALLY WANT TO MAKE THIS CHANGE HAPPEN
Their real driving, tear-provoking reasons why they will do whatever it takes, why no obstacle (and there will be many) will get in their way. Why enough is enough and NOW is the time to make the change.
4. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT IT’S GOING TO COST THEM IF THEY DON’T MAKE THE CHANGE NOW
What consequences and pain they will face if they continue to stay stuck. They don’t use the pain to motivate them into taking action. After all, it is human nature to put things off and avoid change because the unknown is ‘scary’. But when the pain of staying the same begins to outweigh the pain of making the change, you will be motivated to get up and start taking action. Don’t wait until you are consumed by the pain, get attached to it NOW!
5. THEY DON’T KNOW WHO THEY NEED TO BECOME TO GET THE RESULTS THEY ARE SEEKING.
After all, who they are now is who has got them their current set of results in life. If you want to achieve a different set of results, you’ve got to get absolute clarity over what traits and behaviours are absolutely necessary to achieve the change you want. These may reflect the opposite to how you have been showing up. If you’ve been being lazy and full of doubt, perhaps it’s time to become RELENTLESS and self-believing?
6. THEY DON’T KNOW HOW THEY WILL MAKE THE CHANGE.
AFTER they have uncovered their answers to the above, they must focus on the HOW-to’s of achieving their desired change. A strategic plan to make it all happen and start taking the ACTION required. Most people start with the how-to’s and get so overwhelmed because they haven’t taken the time to get ABSOLUTE CLARITY over their specific and emotion-tugging WHAT, WHEN, WHY, COST & WHO before focusing on the how’s. You must create a plan, remain consistent with your effort and immovable on the result you are looking to achieve, but flexible in your approach as to how you will achieve it. Plan A, B, C, D — Z if you must!
