Often when we attempt change we have a tendency to become lost in the challenge. Remember that up to this point you should already have started to use the resources I discussed in previous posts.
But as a checklist it is always worth checking back at just what has been discussed so far. Over the previous posts I have discussed the process of personal change and transformation, I have discussed this in terms of the ETONE model. The model is based on a social psychology theory called Eco-systems theory.
The model suggests that we all interact within our own individual Eco-systems. When contemplating change we can see another Eco-system looming into view. This can cause a tension within us called an Eco-tone.
The process involves building a bridge across transformation to make the journey quicker and easier to navigate. Supporting the bridge are the support resources, which are:
- Changing thoughts/emotions (cognitive restructuring)
- Get clear
- Behavioural activation
- Find inspiration
- Take action
- SMART goals
You should practice all of these daily in order to achieve lasting change. Which brings me too the next support resource. Problem solving.
So what do you do if you feel you’re running into problems with your transformation challenge?
In this post we are going to take a look at problem solving. I have a free resource you can access by clicking here.
Basically you have to name the problem first of all. Next you should ‘brain storm’ all the possible solutions to the problem. Once this has been done you need to shortlist the main list to a workable solution. When you click here you can download a free template.
So now we have looked at a checklist of all the support resources you should be using up to this point and you can add problem solving as a support on your journey to lasting change.
