how can we use what we learned about our self-picture to help us make positive changes in our lives
Making a change isn’t that easy and it will require effort. You have to accept that. And work from that model of reality. [ If you think that things will fall into your lap effortlessly or by some kind or magic then any effort or action will feel so hard and difficult that you will probably not even try. Or if you try and fail, you’ll just quit instead of trying again.
So check your reality.
Are you looking for an easy answer or a magic pill? Or will you work hard while at the same time listening to advice that can help to make the process easier and allow you to work smarter?
A few tips for finding a view of reality that will help you:
1. What have other people before you or around you done to improve their situation?
Ask yourself this question. Talk to people who have made the change you want to make (lose weight, quit smoking, improve the social life etc.). Or if you can’t find anyone, read the top rated books on Amazon.com on that topic or read blog articles. But make sure that you take advice from someone who has actually been in your shoes and gone where you want to go. ]
