Becoming Limitless

Decision is a moment in time; change is a process Becoming Limitless Review of time. Change has four phases: deny, resist, explore, and commit. Moving through the phases can take weeks or months. Where are you in the change process? If you refuse to recognize the need for change, you may be in denial. Blaming others or complaining about a situation could mean you are resisting. Although resistance is normal, you overcome it by acknowledging and talking about it. You shift to exploration when you begin to see possibilities and look for alternatives. Finally, the commitment phase begins when you focus on new ways of doing things or adapt to new situations. Change is easier when you have support and encouragement. Some change is difficult to accomplish on your own. Surrounding yourself with supportive people makes change easier. Many successful people enlist the services of a coach. A coach will help you discover what you want, set realistic goals, overcome the things that get in your way, stay on track and stay motivated every step of the way. Everyone needs help; admitting it does not make you less successful. The beginning of the year is always a great time to take a fresh look at your life and set some goals for yourself that will get you closer to your dreams. Unfortunately as we all know too well, most New Year's Resolutions do not stick. I've seen research saying that as many as 90% of people give up on their New Year's Resolutions before the month of January is over! This has led to setting New Year's Resolutions being seen as a pointless exercise which most of us have decided to abandon. However, setting New Year's Resolutions is a great practice because it's a chance to actually reflect on where you are and how far or how close it is to where you would like to be. In the hustle and bustle of life we have few opportunities during the year to slow down and assess our life so this time of the year is perfect for this important process of reflection. As the old saying goes - "if you don't know where you're going how will you know when you get there?" There is something motivating about setting goals that drives you to get out of your seat and do something about your life.
