The Connection Habit Challenge
Change is hard
I’ve seen it in my own life. I’ve seen it in the work I’ve done with coaching individuals from where they are to where they want to be. I’ve seen it when I was a school teacher. When it comes to people:
People, including me, do not change easily!
In fact there are some theories suggesting that in order to change, you’ll have to cross the 51% pain threshold. If you think about your life being measured on a scale of pain and pleasure, then you will only be urged to change when there is more pain than pleasure. You can experience 40% pain, but the fact that you still have about 60% pleasure means you’ll probably not be urged to do anything about the pain any time soon.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Habits = Success
The most successful people in life are those who have found a way to change and better themselves even before they reach the pain threshold for change. The way they do this, is by creating a clear and compelling vision or goal and then taking action towards reaching those goals.
Many people have goals, but the ones who are actually effective in achieving those goals are those who can implement habits that take them there.
We all have habits, those things we do without thinking about it. A habit is like the brain’s auto pilot mode. Habits can be good or they can be bad.
Tell me about a person’s habits and I’ll tell you where that person will be in a couple of years from now if they don’t change.
The only way to bring lasting change to your life is to start replacing our destructive habits with empowering habits.
That’s why I have created the Connection habit for couples. It’s a simple framework of thinking that you can apply to your life and relationship each day of the week to ensure you grow stronger and more connected in your marriage.
The five focus areas are:
I believe if we focus on something in those areas of our relationship each day, we’ll resolve all of our little relationship issues, experience well-being, and live happy and connected lives.
