Have you ever said to yourself, "If only I would have known that sooner I could have avoided it or done something different?" I have- plenty of times. But isn't that how we learn? Yes, it sure is, but there comes a time when you realize that you keep doing the same thing and getting the same result. And no, they haven't invented a time transporter yet that we know of to go back and change our experiences, so we must look at what we can change today!
When will it stop? Well it stops when you make a definite decision to intentionally change what you are doing that is causing you the negative outcomes in your life.
The blessing in this is that unlike the irrational and highly unstable people that need serious psychological attention, you can change your behaviors to have positive outcomes. Yes, there are many people who because of their deep troubling traumas can never feel like they are worthy or deserving of any good in their lives or having the ability to transfer good to others. "How tragic!" you may say, but it's a fact. Some of these people even have children that get caught in their web of instability and the cycle continues.
For instance, if you have found yourself short of financial stability, emotional stability, relationship stability, and spiritual stability you can deliberately look at the area that you want to change in a positive direction. It will take time, but getting better results is always the goal. Rest assured if you wanted to improve your financial stability and you took on a system that would allow you to gain the knowledge, applied it, and followed through with it you would see results. Keep in mind that in order to change a behavior for another, you have to do it consistently for over 30 days. So if it's credit card spending you want to control- go thirty days without using one, etc!
I am optimistic that there will be a break through for those that have little to no control over their self defeating behaviors, but since you do have control here are a couple of strategies-
1. Make a decision what you want to change
2. Know what your willing to do to achieve it
3. Have some accountability strategies in place
4. Write down your short term and long term goals
5. Look at your goals twice a day- when you wake up and when you go to bed
6. Reward yourself for following through
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
