Have you been told what NOT to do.

Someone gave me some parenting advice recently.

They told me what NOT to do.

Deciding to go along with that suggested idea (although in itself a good idea) left me with no strategy. They didn’t suggest what to do instead.

How often in life do we consider what we shouldn’t do, yet do not have a replacement strategy.

Remember, all behaviour either gives us something we want, fulfils a need, has an aim or a reward.

We may have behaviours which aren’t healthy and which we may wish to eliminate.

However we need a replacement strategy or behaviour- in order to still fulfil the need.

Otherwise it will not be sustainable.

So next time you wish to change a behaviour: Consider the long term.

Consider the replacement.

Lasting change is what we are after .
