Bungy Jump Into Change
I LOVE bungy jumping! There is a thrill and a rush that accompanies a jump that is indescribable. You have to do it to understand the feeling.
Before you do it, you will sit on the fence, watch others and engage in self talk: "Let's do this!" "Nah, not for a million bucks!" Back and forth, back and forth.
If you do it, you will either love it or hate it. If you love it, you will want to do it again . . and again . . . and again. If you hate it, you will never do it again.
That could also be a good description for how humans relate to change. Although it is the only thing constant, many of us struggle to develop a strong and effective relationship with it.
We Are At Weathy Affiliate To Change Our Life
When we made a decision to join Wealthy Affiliate (WA) we, (consciously or unconsciously), made a decision to change. We are all here because we want something different for, or in, our lives and we believe that WA is the vehicle to achieve that.
With that proviso, we should ensure that we are able to adapt and change. More importantly, we should prepare ourselves for the differences that will inevitably come, once we do the work and the time.
Covey reminds us that to get different, we must do and be different. In other words, our behaviour must be congruent. That is, what we think and feel should also be the way that we behave.
Goals, values and attitudes should feed into actual behaviour with little or no disconnect or nuance.
Achieving this takes time, discipline and a strong mind.
Through neuroscience we unnderstand that activity in the brain is intimately intertwined with behavior and how the mind processes. As the mind interprets our internal and external stimuli it initiates our behaviours. These behaviours can either be natural or learned.
In other words, we have the power and the ability to control and manage our thoughts and ultimately our behaviour. It CAN be business as UNusual. Clearly, what we think and how we speak to ourselves matter a lot, and, it is all in the mind.
Remove The Doubt And Affirm Your Change.
COVID-19 has the world in straps. Whatever country I go to, the current situation is the same. This will take a while to pass. Already doubt and negative speculation have set in and they may be creating a stumbling block along your pathway to change here at WA.
These times call for strong minds and lots of positive self-talk. A simple affirmation such as: "This too shall pass." is enough to keep us positively grounded and in eye contact with our goals and objectives.
We may have to wait things out for a while but in the meantime, there is a lot that we can do to keep pulling and pushing towards the change that we want. This is not a time to allow the external to control you. This is a time to manage it as best as we can, using the support that you have here and in your personal social framework.
Write your affirmations. Speak your affirmations. Share your affirmations.
I look forward to continuing this journey with you and to supporting your success. Please reach out whenever you need to. I am always available, if even for a quick "hello".
