Overcome Self-Sabotage and Succeed with Change

March 12, 2019 | By More

Most people have a good idea of how to turn their life around. The solutions are usually fairly obvious and straightforward. Everyone knows how to lose weight, make more money, or keep their house tidier. The challenge is following through.

Why don’t you follow through on your decisions? Choose the reasons that resonate with you and see how you can resolve them:

You are not making a true decision. Making a true decision means cutting yourself off from any other option. Most of us fail to commit sufficiently to our decisions. We are too half-hearted and give up way too quickly.

Understand that a real decision is a commitment you have made to yourself. Show yourself the respect you deserve.

Are you unclear on your values? Understand your values and you will follow through more often.

Knowing your values increases the quality of your decisions. It will also keep you going when you hit an obstacle. You’ll be less likely to give up if you’re living according to your values.

Your emotions get the best of you. Successful people are either less swayed by their emotions, or they have more control over their emotions. Take your pick. It’s hard to be successful without one or the other.

Meditation is one way of getting control over your emotions and yourself.

Focus on making positive decisions regardless of how you are feeling in the moment. The tendency is to make decisions that reduce your anxiety in the short-term. Unfortunately, this leads to long-term failure. Keep your focus on the objective.

Do you follow through on your intentions, or do you find a reason to quit? You probably already know enough to make dramatic changes to your life, so the real challenge is managing yourself and following an effective process.

The power to change your life is within you. You only need to adjust your approach. Perseverance is a significant part of positive change.

What could you change in your life if you followed through on your decisions? A better question is, “What couldn’t you change?”
