How to Change For Good - Part 3

 Benjamin Harvey shares the three final roadblocks to creating authentic change and how to remove them with ease.

We all want change in our lives, sometimes as quickly as yesterday! But in our haste to move forward, most people don’t realise the key to change is often what holds them back. Over thousands of coaching sessions I have seen that if you release just one of the final three roadblocks you will surprise yourself with the speed of your results.

Roadblock #7—

Unfocused learning plan People are often attracted to what I call ‘bright shiny objects’. They get excited about learning a technique, then halfway through they are attracted (or distracted!) by another one. The result is they never get to grow their results. It’s like spending your interest every month instead of letting it compound! The truth is that there are many paths that reach your destination. You just need to pick one and stick with it.

Solution:
Create or find a learning plan that has clear steps of what you need to do every day or week. Realise that being excited about something new is rarely an accurate measure of its value. Instead, write down your idea and review it in a few days’ time.

Roadblock #8—

No reporting structure Imagine your high school teacher said to you: Here is your half-yearly assignment. I am never going to actually check if you have done it. Would you do the assignment?
Please stop and think about the answer. The same also applies for things you give yourself to do.
In most cases, less accountability is followed by fewer results. The reverse is true too. It explains why people work harder when the big boss comes, or how people mysteriously do more exercise when someone is watching them.
This doesn’t mean pressuring yourself throughout the day, but it does act as a great kickstart to get things moving. Just like booking a personal training session gets you to the gym (which is often the hardest part).

Solution:
Ask yourself How can I have more accountability? Perhaps it’s finding a goal buddy, scheduling something in, making a promise to yourself, finding a coach or simply telling a friend.

Roadblock #9—

Not enough pain or pleasure When do you buy more toothpaste? If you’re like most people, it’s only when you nearly run out! Until then, there’s just not a big enough reason to make it a priority.
Similarly, if you don’t have enough pain (or pleasure) driving you to change, you won’t.

Solution:
Write down what you intend to change. Then ask yourself, How will changing this affect my finances, relationships, lifestyle etc? Feel the pleasure of having it and the pain of not having it. These feelings will give you the power to act.
So what's the next step?
Set aside some time to implement these three roadblocks and watch your results improve.
And above all, remember to have fun.
