This Saturday my family and I are moving to our new home. Besides getting married and starting a new business, moving residences is probably one of the biggest changes one can have. Yet, when you have effective strategies for change, this big change can be made smoothly. One of the greatest strategies for change is applying the Triad of Change from the Reorganizational Healing model as discussed in an earlier blog.
The Triad of Change encapsulates all areas of life and demonstrates what needs to be in congruence for change to happen.
The three components of the Triad of Change are:
Structure – What we have – Home, Body, Business, Finances, Relationships, etc.
Behavior – What we do – Our daily actions and habit
Perception – What we focus on – Our thoughts, feelings and the meaning we give things.
We also discussed previously that when you have a challenge and/or want to create change in one of the aspects of the Triad, rather than trying to change that aspect, focus on the other two.
So I’d like to use our move as an example and demonstrate how we applied the Triad of Change. You will see how common sense this strategy is.
The change we wanted to make was in Structure – our Home.
So to make this change we focused on Perception and Behavior.
First, we made a list of all the qualities of our ideal home and how it would feel to be there. Every day, we would look at the list and really feel how it would be to live there….as if we were already there. That’s Perception.
Then we took the appropriate actions (Behavior) to find the home. Got a realtor. Visited homes. Etc.
Before we knew it, we’re packing and moving to our new home – Structure.
That’s how it works and you can apply this to any area of life you want to change.
If you want to change how you feel about something (Perception) – Focus on Structure and Behavior
If you want to change a habit – Focus on Structure and Perception
If you want to change something you have – Focus on Perception and Behavior
With Love and Appreciation,
