Now we all know there are ways we can change our behaviour, attitudes, beliefs and even thoughts, to bring about changes we desire in our lives. These changes are brought on by factors that we know we should change to better our future – things like taking care of our health and saving for future endeavours.
Even though we identify that we need to change certain aspects, we still find these easy to ignore, sometimes on a day-to-day basis, because we don’t see the benefits of effort or damage of avoidance until much later on.
We have all experienced a time where we have the greatest intentions to do something, but we compete against a shadow intention that’s telling us to do the opposite.
For example, behind the intention to eat healthy today is another intention to eat that chocolate bar that’s staring at you while you wait at the checkout. Just like behind the intention to review your finances there is an intention that tells you, you are comfortable where you are and don’t have the time to find better options that may be available.
When it comes to finance, products are constantly evolving and a better solution may be available but there is a gap between the acknowledgment that something needs to be changed and having the will, time or expertise to make it happen. This is known as the knowledge-action gap, where we know we need to do something but keep putting it aside due to excuses, uncertainty or distractions.
We are only human – it’s natural to resist change, but in order to break these unconscious patterns some form of committed action needs to be taken where patience, practice, understanding and support are components that are necessary when making the next move.
