Change can be harder than we think.

It might involve personal health habits, family relationships, social
settings, work groups, and more.

We don’t think about changing on our best days. It usually happens
when we’re upset and it’s been building for awhile.

We admit there’s a problem and decide that it’s only going to change
if we do something different.

We tailor a reasonable solution, however, the resistance to change is
strong. We have an established way of doing things and those
around us have “an investment” in doing things the same way.

So, what do we do?

Persist. There is an old saying that success is not based on genius
but persistence.

Believe that we have our own domain of control in what we say and

Expect failure at the beginning and assume that the resistance will
be much greater before it subsides.

Don’t give up!
