Start With Being Reasonable
By the time you get to the place where you want to hit the reset button, you’re probably feeling many things: fear from what will happen if you stay on the course you’re on, or anger at some of the reasons you got to this place, maybe it shows up more as frustration, sadness, depression- and because you want to override those feelings so bad, you’re more apt to feel like EVERYTHING needs to change fast and change now.
This is why the first pillar for your reset begins with: reason. Being reasonable with what your action plan is, and reasonable with what realistic changes you can expect out of yourself.
Reason is defined as, “the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic.” And let me say- as much as we want to live more from our hearts instead of our minds, I do think in order to find real and lasting change you have to use your mind to be realistic with yourself.
I also think acting with reason makes it easier to meet yourself with compassion and love, as that’s also very important when you’re figuring out how to reset.
