The Formula for Change

Written on the 20 January 2015 by Studio Pilates

In this article you'll learn the science of making a lasting change in your life and how to get moving forwards and start to kick goals.

The formula for change is as follows: In order for you to make a significant change in your life your dissatisfaction level, multiplied by the vision you have for yourself, plus your willingness to take the first steps, all combined has to be greater than your resistance to change.

The resistance in this formula usually comes from fear. Remember fear is an acronym for false expectations appearing real, or unwillingness to get outside your comfort zone.

Now change won't occur if the dissatisfaction level of your current situation is not painful or frustrating enough. So ask yourself, what is the thing that you would like to change the most in your life? Truly how dissatisfied are you on a scale of 1-10?
To start and continue with this program you must have had a certain amount of dissatisfaction about the current state of your body and health right?

Now you also must have a clear vision for yourself in the future...what the new you is going to look and feel like. If you can't picture this it makes it harder to change.

The first steps in the journey of change are often unknown which always increases your fear factor and without these first steps being known the thought of change often seems too insurmountable.

Now all of these things of course all must accumulate to more than the resistance for change to occur and that resistance can come again from false expectations appearing real, from being in a comfort zone, from internal negative self talk, from fear of what others may think of us...from many things.

You must break through all of these things and check your dissatisfaction level, get the vision of a better you clear in your mind, find out those first steps if you don't already have them and break down the fear. Get out there and make the changes you need to in your life guys...what are you waiting for?
