Why is change sometimes so damn hard?

For some of us, there is an area of our life where change seems too damn hard. Maybe it’s getting healthy, maybe it’s changing that pesky habit, maybe it’s getting that promotion. We look to friends or others in social media who are succeeding in those realms, and think, “they have no idea how hard it is!” and “why is it so easy for them?”.

Change is hard because of our expectations.

We tend to think that we should see a linear relationship between our efforts and our results. In other words, more efforts, more results.

From Couch Potato to Gym Bunny

From Couch Potato to Gym Bunny

My client was getting married in a year, and desperately wanted to be in shape before her wedding.  She knew that one of her biggest challenges in losing weight was that she had no motivation to exercise.  The last time she had been to the gym was 3 years ago.  She recalled that she did not want to be there, and couldn’t wait until it was over!  It had been about 10 years since she had exercised regularly.

She never knew her dad, but had inherited her dad’s lack of desire in being healthy.  After releasing it, I asked her how she felt about working out, and she said neutral, which often happens before they’ve had a chance to process the work.

From Unsanitary to Motivation to Clean!

From Unsanitary to Motivation to Clean!

I had a client that came to me for a variety of issues. After listing a number of things she wanted to work on, we asked her subconscious where to start. I got that we needed to work on something that she had not listed. I discovered that we needed to increase her motivation to clean, and then she let me know why that came up.

She had a pet that wasn’t toilet trained and she did not clean up after her.  She had not cleaned her place since her husband left her a year ago!   There was mold, feces and urine everywhere and she didn’t seem to care even if she stepped in it!  Her habits were disturbing and unsanitary enough that her family even tried to get her institutionalized!

How did she get the motivation to clean?

Healthy Choices Made Easy

Healthy Choices Made Easy

Terry came to me concerned about her weight. She had lost 40Ibs through weight watchers, but she was constantly worried about gaining it back, and she wanted to lose 30Ibs more.   She would get intense and regular cravings for salty foods and sweets, and was always thinking about food.   Then when she would eat, she found herself eating far more than she should have, whether it was at restaurants with friends, or at home alone.   At the worst of her eating habits, she could gain weight very fast. Just before we addressed this issue she had gained 11Ibs in 2 weeks!

(See my suggested articles below if you need ideas)!

If yes, are some of these goals ones you have been struggling with for a long time?

If so, are you sure you are taking the best approach?

You may have noticed that some habits are easier to change than others.   Why?  Because lurking below the surface of your conscious mind, is your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind contains your feelings and thoughts from your past that could leave you either feeling empowered or helpless in the face of a new goal.
