Have you ever changed a habit because you were forced into it?
Like, you hate shrimp, but then you go over to your new partner’s parents’ house and eat their shrimp scampi because you don’t want to be rude, but then you realize you actually don’t mind shrimp?
I have a client who works in the mental health field.
We have had discussions about the process of people changing their perceptions. About looking at things from a different perspective.
We’ve chatted about the “cognitive triangle” and about changing thoughts and feelings about different experiences.
When it comes right down to it, the most effective way to change your perspective is to CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOUR.
When it comes to shrimp scampi, you might be forced into it. But most often you DO have the choice.
You want to save money? Start with putting money away TODAY, even if it’s $5.
You want to start running? Start with one block. Literally! Run to the end of the block and run home every day for a week. (Need inspiration on this? Watch #BrittanyRunsAMarathon)
ACTION is the leader for changing your perspective.
Sometimes it takes having shrimp scampi forced upon us to make us realized that change is not that bad.
Same thing with changing habits. The action of saving $5 per day, of running down the block, or of meal prepping is the easiest way to change your perspective.
