Overview

In search of an easier way to approach change...

What makes change so H.A.R.D.? We struggle to lose weight, change jobs, improve our relationships or our financial condition and even give up addictions. We succumb to our habits and accept a life of mediocrity, wishing it could be different and incessantly hoping for that magic solution.

The reality is that we are creatures of habit and change can be uncomfortable. Change requires hard work, consistency and time. We perceive it as a chore and most of us just don't want to work that hard.

Yet, there have been times in your life when you have made great change and it has brought you to a much better place. You were willing to do whatever it took to achieve the outcome you desired and you did it! You succeeded.

Hard or easy, it's how you think about it!

Your thinking is what makes change H.A.R.D. In this book, Julie Donley provides a roadmap to understand your mind and how your thinking creates the obstacles to change. She describes the psychological and emotional aspects of change and explains the thinking that accounts for the real-life problems we encounter. She then guides you to confront and overcome the obstacles to success with eight strategies needed for making the changes you desire.

In this book you will learn how to:
- Gain personal insight and understanding into how you sabotage your efforts
- Identify your motivation for making a change
- Shift your perspective regarding time and expectations
- Create the internal and external supports required to achieve the results you desire
- Manage your emotions as part of the process of change
- Tame your fear and learn to master your negative inner dialogue

This book is an easy-to-read, how-to manual providing insightful guidance on your journey toward a happier and healthier life. Author's warning: you may want to relinquish old ways of giving yourself a hard time in exchange for an easier way. Are you ready to play a new game? Are you ready to give up H.A.R.D. for EASY?
