If problematic behavior become so disruptive within everyday life, why then, is it so difficult to change those behaviors? I'm not talking about chemical addictions, but daily behaviors that cause the individual pain. A feeling of being incapacitated to change. Would this have more to do with feeling as though one deserves a healthier life? If so, how does the cycle end?

ANY behavior can be changed, if there is enough emotional pain associated with the old behavior, and enough emotional pleasure associated with the new, desired behavior. Until that "tipping point" is reached, change can seem frustrating.

Therapy can certainly help one to facilitate this type of positive behavioral change. It should also be noted, however, that some of the difficulty with change can be associated with "old, dysfunctional messages" that need to re-evaluated, nearly similar to updating the operating system on a computer.

For additional clarification, I encourage you to visit THIS posting on my website.

Everyone deserves success be it in a health, wealth, and spirituality. But the problem is as children we are so conditioned between the formative years phrases like:

•Don’t take money from strangers
•Children are to be seen and not heard
•Don’t pry in other peoples affairs
•Don’t embarrass us
•Don’t make noise
•Listen
•Get your Head out of the clouds
•Stop dreaming

At this early age we fall into line with that philosophy. To rid ourselves of this programming I have found a program called “Success Operating Program” by Myron Golden. I haven’t received the program yet. I will let you know how it is in the review I will post on my blog. Stay tuned.

I'll be interested in hearing how the Golden program works. As far as commercial, self-help programs go, the BEST that I have actually discovered, in order to create positive behavioral change, is Anthony Robbins' 30-day audio program. Personal Power II can be purchased here.

I do agree that the Anthony Robbins' Personal Power II is one of the best commercial self help collections out there but he wasn’t always a teacher. He promoted seminars for the great Jim Rohn.


Anthony Robbins is quoted saying:


"I truly believe Jim Rohn is an extraordinary human being whose philosophy can enhance the quality of life for anyone who exposes themselves to it. He certainly had a positive impact on me at a time in my life when I was first forming the philosophies that guide me today."

Author of 'Unlimited Power'


You can hear Jim Rohn Speak HERE.


You can find information about Jim Rohn HERE.


I will be seeing him live in January 8, 9 & 10, 2009 in Dallas, TX. I will have a review posted after the weekend!!!

The basic premise would be "have faith that change is possible and find the method that works best" for me? I don't believe it could be that simple and certainly not an answer that one could find that is a survivor. Perhaps that is where the professional help is needed to identify the underlying dogma.

iamjerry1 said...

If you don't "believe" that it is that simple, then it is not that simple. The professional help can assist with re-evaluating old, limiting beliefs and resolving disturbing memories, in order to reaffirm hope.

J. D. Ward Marketing said...

Simple or not you have to ask yourself, "Is what I am doing working?" If the answer is no then do something else.

One of the best qoutes that I follow every day is from Jim Rohn.

"To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?"

I know it sounds simple but the simplest answers always bring out the best rewards.

idoexist said...

Perhaps life has been so complex, that simple escapes me. However, I am beginning to see, through this dialogue, that perhaps it is simpler than I thought.

It can be painfully obvious when something we are doing doesn't work as it overflows into most aspects of our lives. If I understand correctly, what you are suggesting is to be "mindful of the wall as we focus on the curve".

Simplifying the internal dialogue, simplifies the outlook and direction?

J. D. Ward Marketing said...

The internal and external dialog is the key. What we say and what we think is what we bring about. I recently removed the words need, desire, and try out of my vocabulary. I replaced them with deserve. It is a tough process at first but after a while it turns into a habit. Start with little things.

The best thing is to keep reading and keep adding to your library. I am currently reading "More Heart than Talent" by Jeffery Combs. It is an awesome book and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to change their life. He offers personal coaching and mentoring on his website here which I am going to hire him in the near future. I recommend any product he offers because I own most of his collection for my library.
