Afraid of Change? Slowly "Stretch" Yourself Toward The Life You Want

Afraid of Change? Slowly “Stretch” Yourself Toward The Life You Want

Afraid of Change? Learn How to "Stretch" Yourself Toward The Life You Want
Afraid of change? Practice something called Kaizen – where you take things in small steps – and slowly stretch yourself toward the life you want.

Kaizen is the belief that small little “stretches” of new behavior over time can create huge changes over time.

When you think of “change” in terms of the language of “stretching” then change starts to feel less scary and overwhelming.

Start today to make big changes with small shifts.

  • meditate for 3-5 minutes each morning
  • work out for 15 minutes every other day
  • write that book for 20 minutes a day

FACT:

You don’t grow your life unless you stretch who you are.

PROBLEM:

Stretching means you feel (ugh) discomfort – for a little bit of time -dealing with the pain of the unknown and working new emotional and mental muscle groups.

FACT:

Most people are…

(1) fearful of the unknown

(2) comfy with putting in the least effort

(3) not willing to put up with short term pain for long-term gain.

FACT:

Not you, right? 🙂
