5 Steps to Positive (and Powerful) Self-Change

| June 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

Recently, on my Facebook Page I suggested 5 steps for positive self-change. 

They are:

  1. Awareness: We must be aware that there is a need for change before we are in a position to begin doing
  2. Desire: The desire to change must be greater than the discomfort of leaving the status quo.
  3. A System: We need a process for predictably achieving our goal based on a logical and specific set of how-to principles.
  4. Action: Thought and intention are great, but without action being put into the mix, no change can possibly take place.
  5. Small Successes: Waiting for a huge victory before celebrating can be counter-productive at best, and debilitating at worst. So, be sure to take pleasure in building on your small successes along the way.

My friend Ali Rodriguez added another one, and that is surrounding yourself with encouraging friends.

So true. Having a support system of people who will root for you, encourage you and even hold you accountable adds significant value to those first five.

Additional thoughts? Let’s…crowd-source some good suggestions. ;-)
