Intentional change is emotionally rigorous – it doesn’t exactly feel good and can even be shockingly painful. If you’re unwilling to put yourself through emotional experiences, shift your perspectives, and make purposeful changes to your behaviour and environment, then don’t expect huge changes (at least in the sort run).*
First of all there’s the idea and excitement.
This is followed by the realisation that this isn’t going to be easy.
So we need to figure out a plan to make the idea reality.
It’s not impossible.
It’s just difficult.
But then the worthwhile things in life always are.
