Chats About Change
If you're having trouble initiating or navigating your way through change, watch my series of videos with Guidepost's Editor-in-Chief, Edward Grinnan. For example, I answer that ever-elusive question, how do you get started? It may not be how you think.
The very first step in making any change is believing that you can change. Unfortunately, most people don't believe that they can. Perhaps they've tried before and failed, or they're surrounded by people who don't believe they can change—basically, their environment is not setting them up to be successful.
Change is not about actions. The actions of quitting smoking, leaving a relationship, losing weight, etc are easy. It's the emotions that get in the way in the form of excuses—I'm too old, I'm too young, it's going to take time, it's going to be painful, it's going to cost money, someone's going to be upset, it
's not my nature and so on. People need to get honest and ask, what’s the excuse I keep clinging to? Most likely, that excuse is what's stopping you from believing in yourself, and ultimately, from making that change.

Also, pick up a copy of my book, The First 30 Days: Your Guide to Making Any Change Easier, if you haven't already...perhaps for a friend. We all know someone who is in the middle of a break up, a job loss or some other life change.
