We all awkwardly face the challenges of personal development. A toddler’s coordination skills as simple as holding a spoon, a pre-schooler using their motor skills to write their ABCs with a crayon, a teenager’s ability to multi-task in driving an automobile for the first time, or even dribbling a basketball can be challenging. Yet all are possible with consistency of repetitious actions until the awkwardness is slowly replaced with learned skills.
Repetitious behaviors or actions help establish subconscious programming not just with motor skills but also in patterns of disciplined thought, speech, and cognitive restructuring. Consistency certainly does matter in relation to self-development, when disciplines are persistently applied daily until behaviors become natural rather than forced.
Your own will-power will be put to the test but let’s face it. Becoming our best (or better at least) requires our willingness to change. Perfection? That’s a stretch for anyone to achieve perfection. It’s lofty to assume we can completely eliminate all our own personal cognitive distortions.
It’s Not About Perfection
It’s more about mindset, healthy disciplines, and consistently making an effort to challenge ourselves, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and yes, even spiritually. The alternative is digression, an unhealthy decline instead of advancement. A negative attitude will resist change.
It’s not difficult to rewire your brain to be positive, productive, and proficient. Proactive, consistent persistency in correct, repetitive, positive patterns, and staying on course for approximately 12 weeks will change your life.
