Recently my husband and I moved from Quebec to British Columbia. We drove across the country because I couldn’t bear the thought of shipping our dog, Cindy, out by air. During the nine days of travelling not only was our routine changed, so was Cindy’s. Instead of putting her out in her huge backyard, we had to walk her every morning to do her business.
Apparently she got used to that habit and when we moved into our home she decided that going out to the front lawn was no longer serving her and she now liked the habit of being walked.
So what’s the lesson? We can change our habits more easily than we think. If the dog can adapt so can we. Now, we are humans and that being said we are more resistant than animals. Animals adapt to survive. Your goal is to survive and thrive. You can adapt just like Cindy.
What habit do you need to change so that you can not only survive, but thrive? Make a list of those habits, choose the most important one and make a plan to change it. You don’t have to do it alone, find a good friend to hold you accountable until you’ve achieved your goal.
Until next time – be audacious!
