Why Changing Habits is Hard

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Tue, Apr 29, 2014 @ 10:07 AM

motivational speakerChanging behaviours and habits is very challenging. The problem is the things we should do to effect change are often uncomfortable or boring. Which is why most change efforts fail.

Just look at the statistics ...

Marriage counselling works for fewer than 1 in 5 couples

85 %of people have bosses who tried to get us to change but failed

98% people fail at resolutions to change habits

70% people who take out a home equity loan to pay off debt end up with the same amount of debt  or more within a few years

Behavioural scientists have discovered this is because people are in the dark about what is influencing their behaviour. Without knowing it, circumstances and situations are influencing our behaviours and sabotaging success.

According to the book, Change Anything, the authors say the first step to change is understanding these subliminal forces. Ultimately YOU need to study YOU to discover those critical moments that have you reaching for a chocolate bar when you are trying to lose weight.

You need to study what works for you and more importantly what doesn't.

The authors create a compelling case that studying your behavior is the best way to see your patterns and break bad habits
