Are you trying to change your natural needs, wants, desires, values and/or motives or simply a learned habit that is not performing well for you?

 

Changing a habit is much more likely to be successful than changing your need for the 16 common human motives as measured using a Reiss Motivation Profile®. Natural needs/motives/values do not tend to change much as humans age. Habits are often not easily changed, but are more likely replaceable.

 

You may have developed a habit as a way to easily get one or more of your natural needs satisfied.  If so, it will be very frustrating to change the habits unless you are able to figure out an alternative way to satisfy those same needs.

 

I follow and read Dr. Denny Coats, Ph.D.’s Tweets daily. I admit to being a big fan of Dr. Coats.  Here is a link to his blog featuring a terrific post on changing habits:
