Diving Deep in the Cycle of Change: Understanding the Root of Our Behavior and Empowering Lasting Change
Before changing negative behaviors, you must understand there is a cycle of change. There are underlying factors and motivations driving our actions and behaviors that we may not even be aware of. Building a healthy habit depends on diving deeper into ourselves and determining the underlying behaviors and actions preventing a new habit forming.
The key to any relationship starts with learning to love yourself. Your relationships are what hold you back or propel you forward. Knowing how to select your relationships helps you avoid mistakes that come with negative influences. One of the critical factors influencing how you choose your connections and how you relate with them is your relationship with yourself.
You may need to turn your life around at times in order to achieve your goals and live a purposeful life. Additionally, this can help you to overcome challenges and obstacles that may be holding you back. Every effective growth strategy requires the right ingredients that guarantee monumental growth. Dig deeper to find your gifts and shine your light.
Self improvement is a continuous battle. As you work toward mental growth, you dig into who and what you must compare it with who you are. Who do you want to be? Examine your behavior and work on it towards becoming a better person and finally living the life you desire.
We all hold energy within us, and our vibrational energy either holds us back or pushes us up toward success. Your behaviors create the frequency and vibrations within you. There are different levels to our frequencies: high vibration energy and low vibration energy. Success is an inside journey. With sustainable actions, your results will be consistent.
Vision boards and resolutions can be powerful tools for improving our lives; it’s important to remember that they’re only part of the equation. To truly make progress and achieve our goals, we must also focus on the behaviors and beliefs that are holding us back and take a structured and informed approach to making progress.
Access to friendship, or your inner circle, should be gained through trust and commitment. The people around you can affect you and determine if you have a negative or positive outlook on life or goals. Close friendship doesn’t happen by chance; it requires a high commitment and intentionality to make it work.
Shadow work is becoming aware of what’s hidden and gradually healing those aspects of yourself. It’s making the unconscious conscious and the unacceptable acceptable. To do shadow work is to bring your shadow self closer to you. It is part of who you are, after all.
Self-growth takes work. In life, we often get stuck trying to solve the wrong problems. Growth work is always done in the shadow rather than in our area of strength. The shadow is where we aren’t as strong. As we work towards becoming our best selves, it’s important to remember that growth and self-improvement require effort and discomfort.
Living a life by design does not come naturally or by accident. Many of us have tried all kinds of personal development tactics that leave us trying to solve the wrong problems or leave us spinning in circles. At Designing Genius, we understand that each of us is only one behavior away from genius living.
