Can You Change in a Single Moment?
Change is a curious thing. In most areas of life you dread it, yet in
others you pine for it.
You're told that change is hard, that it takes time. You're also told
that change is the most consistent thing that you'll encounter. You
wonder how to make lasting changes that will improve your life.
I'm here to argue that change can happen in an instant.
I know this goes against mainstream belief. Most people believe that
change has to be worked at for months or even years. We expect to try
and fail numerous times before we ultimately give up or succeed.
Think about it-how many people do you know who struggle with their
weight? They want to make a healthy change by getting in shape, but the
change never seems to take hold.
Is there something in your life that you want to change? Do you have
weight to lose? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have a pair or
pants that you wish you could fit into?
What is preventing you from making a positive change in your life?
According to professional speaker and author, Anthony Robbins, it's the
getting ready to change that takes time. In the end there's an instant
when the change occurs. Robbins goes on to outline three specific
beliefs that you must have in order to instantly create a lasting
Belief #1: Something must change.
Do you kind of want to get into shape or do you absolutely have to lose
the weight? Does dropping a few pounds sound nice or is living another
day in your current body simply out of the question? In order to make a
lasting change you must be convinced that the time is right.
Belief #2: I must change it.
It is vital that you take full responsibility in making the change.
Sure, others may assist you, but in the end you are the one who is
going to make it happen. You have to want this change enough to make it
your personal mission-no one else will do it for you.
Belief #3: I can change it.
Don't let past failures get in your way. The truth is that you can do
amazing things when you put your mind to it. Believe that you are
capable of losing weight or making any other positive change in your
Why do most people fail to make lasting change? They leave it up to
willpower. This works for awhile, but you'll always revert back to
what's comfortable. The solution?
Change what you're comfortable with.
You've probably heard that humans are motivated by two things: 1) to
avoid pain and 2) to gain pleasure. When you want to change a behavior
pattern the key is to associate pain with the behavior that you don't
want and pleasure with the behavior that you do want.
You know that you want to lose weight and that to do so you need to
quit eating comfort food late at night. You also know that you need to
start exercising on a regular basis. Up until this point your brain is
trained to associate pleasure with eating comfort food late at night
and to associate pain with exercise.
It's time to retrain your brain to feel good about exercise and to feel
bad about eating late at night. Think about all of the negative things
about being overweight and connect these unpleasant thoughts to your
late night snack. Now think about all of the wonderful things about
being in shape and connect these pleasant thoughts to exercise.
