Factors in Change: Action and Circumstance
Change is very much possible, in fact, one can change in an instant if he or she so desires.The problem is not with the change itself but with maintaining the new behavior, i.e.,such that one does not revert back to the old behavior. The question of change is not oneof whether or not change is in fact possible but rather how to best go about it. Now some argue that you can’t change your circumstances and that one ought to focusonly upon changing his or her actions. This isn’t necessarily the best advice. One often(perhaps more often than not) has the power to change both his or her actions
his or her circumstances (granting circumstantial change may in fact be more limited).When you have set a goal for change, you are seeking a certain result or set of results.Change
results oriented (again, others claim otherwise). As most changes are notinstantaneous but rather cumulative, progress can be noted by the presence of results.Results demonstrate progress and progress stokes the fire of motivation. When one seeshim or herself making progress this incites enthusiasm and the result is that more energyis available and this energy can be channeled into attaining the final goal with all themore passion and fervor.
