take you in a new direction, helping you to let go of the past and embrace the future with hope and vigour. Without our knowing, much from our past drives our current behaviour.
What to do when reality dictates that different behaviours would be more effective right now? Change your behaviour? Easier said than done!
First there’s a need to recognise current behaviour (Awareness) and what triggers it. Before we can change we need to know what we do and how we react.
Our first reaction to observing ourselves is often self critical "I shouldn’t do that", followed by an intense desire to stop. Our resistance reinforces our "bad" behaviours and they persist. Understanding that we react out of our past experiences and doing the best we can, (Acceptance) leads to understanding.
This opens the door to change. We can now identify and implement new strategies (Action). Changed behaviours guarantee better outcomes.
