Changing is not easy. Suprise? Surely not.
You need to decide to change and you need to be ready for it. You can decide to change but also other people can “decide” for you. An example at work? You are asked to learn something new or you need to perform a new task.
You need to invest energies if you want to maintain your new behaviour over time. If adopting a new behaviour is just a response to an external event, you are reacting more than changing. In other words, if the results of a change were immediate and visible, you would just modify something or react
Dedication and hard work lead to the creation of new actions and habits. You must keep working and remaining patient even if you fail during this changing process. Only if you’d continue to invest time and energies, you will change.
