Sometimes it’s better to take a quantum leap (big change) and sometimes baby steps.
99% of the time though, baby steps are better.
That’s because your ability to follow through depends on your level of commitment.
Thinking about where you are right now — how committed are you? How much “backlash” are you willing to take?
If the answer to that is “not much” then baby steps are the way to go. If there’s no urgency to change, baby steps can still take you to a happy and healthy place, with very little in the way of discomfort.
It amazes me how time flies — the weeks go by quickly! If you make a little change each week then it soon mounts up…
One of the big mindset issues with change is the association of change with pain. If we’re not careful we can end up fearing change, HATING it. This is because we attempt too much in one go.
But when you take baby steps the opposite is true… you start to believe in yourself, you see that change is easy, you become excited by the possibilities and you start to see light at the end of the tunnel…
“These little steps will get me there! This is really going to happen.”
If you invest some regular attention to it and take it to heart, Happy Guide will supercharge your ability to manage change. You’ll soon begin to get WINS and believe you can finally have what you may have struggled to get in the past.
