“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always have what you’ve always had” – Henry Ford
The hierarchy above illustrates the levels of change, the degrees in which you can initiative change and the effect it has on other factors of your life. Each time you change a level it only effects change to the levels below it; for example if you change your behaviour you will only change your environment you aren’t effecting change through any other level but if you shift your identity every other levels shifts as well. To create long lasting and effective change you need to work on changing the top of the hierarchy and be prepared to adapt the lower levels are they consequentially change.
Activity 1: Create a mind map of what you want each level to look like, detail it; how will you feel?, Where will you be? Write it all out in the present tense as if this is what you life is now. Speaking will certainty opens the universe and subconscious mind up to understanding that this is happening and that you are accepting of this, so that when it comes along (and it will) your mind doesn’t trick you into hiding from it or being scared of it.
Activity 2: Take note of what you need to change from your current life to make this a reality and pay attention to what levels they are – where does you change need to start from?
Activity 3: Create a plan on how to implement this change into your life and remember to factor in how your changes will effect the lower levels. You deserve to be who you want to be and to have the life you want to be, don’t wait for it to come along by chance – do what you need to do to make it happen.
