S:0515 Quote: Change

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“People cannot sustain behavior that is inconsistent with the way they see themselves.”

Mike Spence

 

Coaching Point: Have you ever made a change and then reverted to your old behavior? Sure, everybody has because their inside was not in line with their outside. When you want to make a permanent change in behavior, also make a change in how you see yourself. That is, picture yourself benefiting from the new way of being. Feel what it is like when you get the payoff you want. Actually hear yourself saying words which reflect your new and more desired outcomes. When you change your image of yourself, you increase the ease of making a permanent change.
