Can we really change? Can people on our team change? Can any of us get better at anything or are we stuck with the hand we’ve been dealt from the personality card deck?
If we believe that our personality traits are set for us by some combination of nature (DNA) and nurture (our experiences), then change will be slower and more difficult.
If we believe we have control over our reactions, then change is inevitable. By taking command of our reactions, we can change life-long habits of thought and behavior for the better. Tools like the flip, the ladder, telling yourself a different lie, the keep-or-toss, focus on the good stuff, this is me, and knowing how to change a habit help us change.
A better question is, “Do we want to change or are we resisting?”
