Release the Brakes
What do we mean by Release the Brakes? You may instead say:
- Step Out of your Comfort Zone
- Get Yourself out of the way
- Chang to a Right Mindset
- Remove obstacles
- Overcome self-sabotage
Essentially meaning to change behaviours. I hear you, ‘Easier said than done’ you say. Jack Canfield takes you through the following steps:
- First step is Raise Awareness
- Second step is Influence Attitudes and then
- Final step is Change Behaviours.
As Einstein stated “The significant problems we face cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them”.
Personally, I find, generally, I am well aware of my awareness to what I need to improve on; what I need to release the brakes on. For me, it is about the final step, changing behaviours. The best way I find I achieve this is to include a step into my normal daily routine. That way I’m not overwhelmed by having to achieve the whole goal but just one step each day.
For example, I have in my daily routine to do a 20 minute yoga routine and aiming for 5 per week. But because it is in my daily routine, I often achieve this and many times exceed it too! I talk about daily routines and habits more here.
