Most of us have good insights about what we need to change. But those pesky repeating mental patterns that result in stress, damaged relationships or other unwanted outcomes can make it difficult to act on or sustain a positive change.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been through the following scenario many times: You feel the need for a change and get that “ah ha” insight on what to do and you’re motivated; then a challenging situation arises and you go through the same mechanical response that has stopped you before and start doubting your decision. Or you try acting on the insight for a bit, then get distracted or forget, and you slip back. So things keep on going the way they have been and dissatisfaction with yourself sets in.
I found that by using these 4 steps, you can actually “anchor” a good insight you’ve had so you increase your ability to act on it, rather than allow it to fade away.
