Change can be a difficult process for everyone. Often times, the excessive planning and thought process that goes into our personal goal can limit us from actually achieving our goals.
When it comes to wanting to change, you need to think about the core reasons you want to change. What are you hoping to achieve with your resolution? For many people, the core desire for change are reasons like acceptance, love, or happiness. One of the biggest shifts you can make in your thought process when trying to achieve personal goals is thinking about what you can do to better the world, or enrich your personal life, instead of seeing what the world can give you.
We must also be aware of our conflicting thoughts and desires, instead of judging ourselves for our inner conflicts. For example, we know that it is bad to procrastinate, but many of us procrastinate regardless. But being aware of our conflicting interests is going to do more good for everyone, instead of beating yourself up.
When done right, change can lead to positive outcomes. These positive outcomes include having a new outlook on life. When switching your focus, you open up your perspective. You are also willing to be more receptive to new things and new information. This is because you’ve expanded your thought process. With being more receptive, you might build new hobbies and interests you enjoy doing. For instance, you want to change the way you think about yourself and your life, so you decide to start volunteering. Instead of being all about yourself, you want to better your community and those around you.
