Thinking about them, and all of us who want to change something in our life but are undeclared as of yet, I went into some old "paper" files and found a long forgetten list entitled: 12 Principles of Change. I don't know where I got it...I don't claim initial ownership of it, but I do take responsibility for getting the list to you over the next few blogs. I have listed the top four principles below.
Read them, then read them again. They look simple until you reflect on them and apply them to your life. The Top 4 Principles are as follows:
- Purpose- We are happiest when moving toward a goal.
- Perspective-Situations may look different depending on our point of view.
- Balance- Nature hates imbalance. Most problems are a sign that an imbalance has occurred.
- Escalation- Doing the same thing usually gets the same result.If we are not succeeding we need to change the balance of forces.
Just a few thoughts to get you going on your road to change and rewiring! Use these principles to coach yourself!
