Why it's difficult to change (no matter
how hard you try) - #007
In this episode, I am talking about why it’s so difficult to change (no matter how hard you try).
It’s the time of year when we vow to change starting January 1st.
It’s also the time of the year when we tell ourselves: “This is the year when I finally change, once and for all.”
And unfortunately, we all know how that ends.
Today, I am going to share with you why change is so hard, and why resisting it leaves us stuck in our old ways.
You see, I’ve come to see that we are very attached to our identities and that’s why we resist change so much.
Our identity is linked to what we believe about ourselves and how we perceive ourselves.
Your identity does not want you to change; it wants you to cling to the familiar, even if that is what’s holding you back.
We refuse to let go of our identity because if we are not who we believe we are, then who the F are we?
But what if dropping your identity is the solution to every single problem.
Today you will finally understand why it’s so difficult to change, and what really needs to happen for you to unleash your potential and discover infinite intelligence and pure creative power.
Why is change so hard and why do we resist it.
Why you disappoint yourself every time you tell yourself: "This is the year where you finally change."
How your identity prevents you from changing and keeps you stuck.
Why your identity does not want you to change and wants you to be the same person you were yesterday.
The danger of holding on to your identity to avoid making others uncomfortable.
Why you cling to your familiar problems and identity just to avoid change (even if they are holding you back).
The huge lesson we can learn from kids about shifting identity without judging or questioning themselves.
Why giving yourself permission to change is an act of rebellion that takes courage.
Why, when you resist change you are putting yourself in a little box with labels.
What if you could be everything and anything without asking for permission to change.
What if telling everyone and yourself “that this is who you are” is just a trap that causes you suffering and keeps you stuck.
The importance of understanding that dropping your identity is the solution to every single problem.
Why, when you free yourself from your identity you will discover infinite intelligence and pure creative power.
The importance of understanding that the only reason why you are attached to your identity is that you have been believing your thoughts.
