Creating Your Successful Change
About this time in January, for many of us, our New Year’s aspirations that shined so brightly on 12/31 /14 have started to dim. As the sheen of your new intentions have started to loose their luster, you may be asking yourself why?
“This was something I really wanted to change in my life. Why isn’t it working?”
Creating a lasting change is hard. If someone tells you otherwise they are misleading you.
The stark reality is, that for a change to succeed, we need to understand how our brain works.
We literally need to re wire our brains in order for create successful change.
Essentially our beliefs get hard wired by time we are 5 years old. Understanding that your beliefs serve as your behind the scenes operating system, is a critical first step to create successful change in your live.
Naming and updating your beliefs is the next essential step in any effective long term change.
Suggestions for Creating Your Successful Change

2. Be Kind to yourself
3. Ask yourself regarding the desired change What are my
4. Design your change action plan around the answers you receive.
5. Commit to the new behavior for 40 days. This will give your brain/nervous system the opportunity to re wire your responses.
6. During those 40 days. Create a immediate reward or validation . For example it could be you get to sit down and read, take a bath, have a quiet cup of tea. Maybe up front, you write yourself 40 different – you did a great job messages and you get to pull them after your completed change behavior for each of those 40 days.
7. Spend time in nature
8. Take to integrate- have fun, be quiet- yes quiet. This may mean reading, taking a nap, going inside for some just me time. Now for those of you who are moms- that may mean just 10 minutes in the bathroom with the door closed. However you chose to get it, quiet time is an essential ingredient for our nervous systems to create lasting change. Our nervous system needs to prune, grow and re integrate.
