Making Changes – Six Easy Steps to Lasting Change

125x125_4I’m a firm believer in the Law of Attraction …

and the idea that what you think about most, what you really focus on, is what you get.

Or to quote someone much wiser than I,

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” (Norman Vincent Peale)

If, for example, you want to build up your self-confidence, then you need to change the way you think about yourself.

So how do you do that?

Here are six steps to personal growth and lasting change that you will go through regardless of what it is that you are wanting to change in your life.

1. A growing awareness that something needs to change…

You can’t make a change unless you are aware that a change needs to be made. (Well, you can … but it won’t stick.) Call it gut instinct or intuition or whatever other name you want to give it, but it’s all the same. When it’s time to make a change you will know it.

You’ll also start seeing ways that you might accomplish the change as well. For example, when you realize that you need to build up your self-confidence you might start to think of ways you can create more positive self talk. Or you might start seeing a more positive self-image for yourself.

You will also, at this stage, start noticing what you do not want in your life. Pay attention to this because knowing what you don’t want makes it much easier to figure out what you DO want. Having this awareness makes it that much clearer what your next step should be.

2. Examining your thoughts and feelings helps develop clarity around the issue.

Ask yourself questions about why you feel the way you do, and what you would like to do differently. Pay attention to the answers and any emotions that come along with them.

Write down your answers in a journal while they’re still fresh in your mind so that you don’t lose your first instincts in the process of changing and growing.

I’ve learned the hard way that your first impressions are usually the most accurate, so it’s nice to have a record of them as a reminder when you start resisting change and trying to rationalize why things should stay the same.

3. Set an intention for success.

Setting your intentions can make or break you when it comes to making lasting change. Put your heart and emotions into creating a strong intention and say it out loud like you really mean it and your life depends on it. When you really put your heart into your intentions, the Universe can’t help but hear and set the wheels in motion to make sure you get what you are attracting.

4. Take action on your intention.

One of the biggest reasons that change doesn’t stick is because people don’t take action. I’m guilty of it, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.

You must take action on your intention to get the results you want!

Taking action might feel uncomfortable at first because you are actually doing something that brings about change. It’s not always easy, especially when you are trying to break long-established habits.

The best advice I can give you here is to stick with it. Take one small action to boost your self-confidence every day and before long you will see positive results.

5. Keep making improvements until it feels exactly right.

Making changes in your life is largely a process of trial and error. Keep trying new things. Test what makes you feel confident and strong, and notice what makes you feel on edge, like something is still not quite right. Keep the positives and toss out the negatives and try something else.

6. Integrate the changes so they become a permanent part of your lifestyle.

Once you hit on the right buttons to build your self-confidence, then keep practicing in order to make your new mindset a permanent part of your life. Thinking positive, uplifting thoughts about yourself should become second nature with practice.

Making changes in your life is largely a product of self-awareness. By following through on the little nudges you get from your mind and intuition, you will be able to make the positive changes that enable you to live life to the fullest.


This text is quoted  from the Acorn Stash, with Gratitude.

Another book from my book list that will help you get a grip on this part of your life is this one,

Think & Grow Rich

I have mentioned it before and the title is a bit off putting for some, but riches covers a whole gamut of results, Not Just Cash in the Bank!


This self awareness is vital to success in any area of your life , no more so than The field of Digital Marketing, and the social signals that Digital Marketing is the way forward, are all there…

This is why within the S.F.M. Mindset is considered such an important part of the training, and is at the core of what we do…

Training be it of self and how we think or in technical how to areas like web design, automation, is all within the system, the support is all there.We are just waiting for you!

If You have Got Your Reason Why? Take Action I Look forward to meeting you soon

Take care
