Resolutions are often plans to make big changes in one’s life.
These changes are seen as a threat by our brains. (It’s true!)
Our lower brains are in charge of keeping us alive. So, they do everything they can to avoid threats.
And, since we’re using the same operating system from hunter-gatherer times, change – even change we know is good for us – is a threat.
(Our brains know how to survive in our current situation, even if it’s not healthy long term. Changing your situation means adding unknowns, which are scary.)
So, resolutions = big change = threat, according to our lower brains.
And, that causes our lower brains to come up with excuses, reasons why we should stop trying to achieve our resolutions.
That’s why we fail.
How do you overcome this self-sabotage?
Break your big goal down into tiny steps.
Easy things you can do daily, which turn into habits.
Once we build a habit, that means there are new neural pathways in our brain. Paths of least resistance that make those actions easier to perform.
They no longer require willpower, a finite resource.
Instead, they become effortless.
The way you live.
Who you are.
And, over time, those little steps add up to reach your big goals!
One of my big goals is to increase my lead gen and revenue.
