A habit is a thought and action that has been repeated so many times it becomes automatic and normal. We become so accustomed to doing this action we are not aware we do it. Challenging these habits will be life changing.
Hello, My Friends
Challenging Norms, what is normal for you may not be normal for everyone.
What makes a norm, normal?
Generally a norm is normalised by the people around us.
We learn more by doing than by being told what to do, and we learn by watching what other people do.
Being told one thing and observing another, we often do what we observe.
To challenge a norm, means to put pressure on that thought, action or belief.
Once an old norm, has been found to be outmoded and the choice has been made to replace it, finding and focusing on the new behaviour becomes the centre of attention.
Take for example cigarette smoking,
Once cigarette smoking was all the rage, all the ‘cool’ people were smoking.
Advertising was geared towards showing people what they were missing out on if they weren’t smoking.
It took a lot of pressure to ‘encourage’ people that smoking wasn’t as healthy or ‘cool’ as it was deemed to be.
As legal requirements changed around smoking venues, peoples attitudes began to change, somewhat resistantly at first.
Now it is not so normal to be a cigarette smoker.
Do you have a habit that you want to shift gears on, and haven’t had a lot of success in yet?
I can help you to unravel the emotional ties to your habit, and together we can create a new way of being without the habit.
As a life coach, part of what I do is challenge your normal thinking. You don’t know what you don’t know, until you do.
I help bring clarity to what you do know, and shed a light on things you may not know.
If you are stuck, challenging your normal thinking can produce results you weren’t aware of.
Let’s begin a conversation about what habit you want to change.
