COGNITION - INTRO

Do you make decisions quickly, not quickly enough, issue strong judgements, think poorly of yourself or too highly perhaps? These are just a few ways to consider “how” you think. The important part is to critically evaluate your unique cognitive process as it relates to the changes you wish to create in your life. Both the way we think and what we focus on will impact our ability to change.

HEART - INTRO

10

Our emotions play a big part in our ability to succeed. When we are confident, grateful, curious and positive, then we will have a greater chance of achieving change. When we are negative, angry, reactive, or closed off from our emotions, we may have a harder time moving toward positive change. Exploring our emotional self in all of its variety helps us understand what emotions are influencing us, what we might be avoiding and what we can do to realign.

ACTION - INTRO

Thinking and feeling are important, but it is the actions we take that guide our thoughts and feelings. Our action, or inaction, plays a significant role in our ability to push toward our desired outcome.

NOURISHMENT - INTRO

20

It is not news that what we eat, how we move, how well we sleep, and our general lifestyle all influence us from day to day and over the course of our lives. This influence is especially pertinent to the process of seeking and maintaining positive change. How we treat our body affects our motivation, energy, creativity, strength, and focus. Considering how we nourish ourselves is vital.

GUTS - INTRO

25

When moving through a change, consider if you have the guts to ask the hard questions. Can you explore the important depths of your lived experience? The opportunity is to examine your strengths, values, passions, fears, insecurities, blind spots, and shadows. Can you do what’s necessary to allow your most authentic self to come forward? Guts are required.

ENVIRONMENT - INTRO

30

When it comes to positive change making, our environment goes beyond the people we choose to be around. Our environment includes our family members, friends, partners, workplace, city/town, community and even where we spend our time online. The people, places, things and ideas we surround ourselves with are always influencing us. This influence can propel us toward what we want or actively prevent us from achieving our goals. Choose wisely.

SPIRIT - INTRO

35

You can identify as Spiritual, Pagan, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist, etc. No matter how you define yourself, your sense of meaning and belief system informs how you go through the demanding process of creating positive change. Examining how your belief system affects you, is always helpful. How we frame the world and grapple with the hows and whys of our existence is a core component of how we interact, make decisions, and apply meaning to situations.
