I have a client who has been rocking her process over the last few weeks-she has broken bad patterns, set new habits into motion and achieved many short-term victories.
She was on the right track and building a strong foundation for lasting change. Believe it or not, this can be a dangerous place to be when engaged in any new process of change.
With all this positive momentum came a false sense of security-she literally caught herself thinking “I’m all good. I got these bad habits kicked.” And with that thinking came a slippery slip of decision making….she took her eye off the ball, stopped doing the work, stopped using the tools and thus, fell off the wagon, landing face first right back in her bad patterns.
In this week’s ‘MoMonday Video: Keep Your Eye On the Ball’ (click here to watch), I teach you how to navigate these slippery slopes successfully.
Remember, when you turn that corner in the change process and start to experience the positive effects associated with your new behavioural patterns, it is more important than ever to keep your eye on the ball.
Stay focused and be intentional. In other words, don’t let your foot off the gas pedal. Just because you have turned the corner does not mean that you have crossed that finish line.
When change starts to occur it is merely a sign that what you are doing is working-so keep doing it.
Until next time, make every performance count!
