Why is it so hard to change our bad habits?

Not being able to change doesn’t mean you’re weak, stubborn, or lazy. Whatever it is that you resolved to do (or stop doing) in the past, there’s no doubt you meant it. So what’s been standing in your way?

Your mind has a hidden agenda of its own to maintain the status quo. It is likely to reject anything that it perceives as new, unsettling, or potentially dangerous. This inherent resistance protects you from the negative disruption that sudden change can bring.

Unfortunately, these built-in defense mechanisms can often sabotage positive change in your life as well.

Renewing your mind is the process of changing the way your mind operates. Romans 12:2 says you are “transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  This critical verse was the core message of my baptism testimony more than 30 years ago!

In recent years, I have combined this Biblical truth with the latest advancements in cognitive science and behavior modification.  I provide a FREE Renew Your Mind workbook that can help uncover what has been holding you back.

I show you how to break through cognitive barriers and provide the secret to making changes that stick.

Most people don’t realize the importance of their thought life and the impact it has on their body and emotions.  Your body does what your mind tells it to do.  Your mind controls your actions. So you won’t be able to change your behavior without changing your mind.

If you want to successfully change your behavior, one of the best things you can do is to monitor your thought life and adjust your thinking.  But you must be willing to look at your entrenched patterns of belief through a fresh lens.  You have to replace lies with God’s truth for your life.  You need to become deliberate in your decision to monitor your thoughts and the assumptions you have been making.

Most people don’t know where to start. It is not clear to them what they should do differently or how to create the change they desire. The FREE Renew Your Mind workbook is designed to help you create positive and sustainable change in your life.   The simple 5-step program promises to transform you from the inside out.
