Sustainable and effective change is a journey and in most circumstances it is a never ending journey.
That is why dedication is so important.
To ensure change is implemented you must be dedicated to it.
Dedication will keep you going when times get tough as they inevitably will.
This may sound like hard work, and yes it is, that is exactly what is required to create and sustain effective change.
So how do you ensure you are dedicated to change? What will keep you going when the road gets bumpy and times get tough?
Knowing why you are changing and continuously revisiting this reason for change will ensure you stay on the path and stay dedicated to realise the change you envision.
Simon Sinek’s ‘Start With Why’ Ted Talk has had over 1.2 million views on YouTube.
In this popular video Simon talks about starting with your ‘Why’ when you are doing something. It is one of my favourite Ted talks and is absolutely worth a watch. ‘Why’ makes sense as a good place to start anything!
Life will get in the way, you will get in your own way, others will get in your way.
Keep going, keep your reasons for change at the front of your mind, keep working hard.
Just like Pinky in the image above, your path to change may be tough and long but keep going, you never know how close you are to that breakthrough!
