I hope you’re here because you’re ready to
begin reading and working through
A Year to Change! This is the week you
take inventory before we get started!
If you want to make positive change in 2014,
come and join us. It’s going to be fun and
life-changing, in a good way!
How hard is it to change?
I mean, really, how hard is it?
Helping people to make change happen
is my business, so I’m going to tell you.
I’m not going to lie. It’s not easy.
Creatures of Habit
Humans are creatures of habit.
We just do what we have always done,
even when we don’t like it, don’t enjoy it,
it’s not healthy for us, and we ought to
do something else. Why on earth are
we like this? Why is it so hard to change?!
Because It’s Work!
It’s hard to change because it requires
learning something new, doing something
different, reminding ourselves probably on
a daily basis for awhile to do things in a
different way…and that’s WORK!
(Our brains think doing anything slightly
differently from habit is work!)
And no one works unless they have to.
(Or they’re going to get paid for it.)
You’ll Be Rewarded
I can tell you that if you’re willing to make
one small change each week, learn one small
thing that will make a difference in your life,
and take the time to learn new habits, you will
be rewarded. No, I can’t send you a check!
I wish I could, though…it’d be a great incentive
to get things going! Can you see the headline?
“Psychologist pays people to
make positive change!”
I Can’t Put A Price Tag On It
You’ll be rewarded with more moments of joy,
improved self-esteem, happier relationships and
friendships, feelings of contentment and peace,
better physical and mental health. All those things
that we say we “can’t put a price tag on.”
So, if you’re willing to put in a little bit of what is
called “sweat equity,” you’re going to get out of
this year way more than you put into it.
Maybe for the first time!
I invite you to be a part of A Year to Change!
Meet me here each week for inspiration, as you’re
reading and working the weekly exercises in the
book, and don’t forget to follow me on facebook,
twitter, and pinterest for nudges and encouragement!
You don’t have to do the hard work alone!
