“The best way to change someone else’s behavior is to change your own.”
People often want their near-and-dear friends and family members to cultivate new, positive habits. Yet, the unfortunate reality is that behavior change can’t be forced upon another. We can try to bribe, coerce, or even threaten but, without the cooperation and sincere desire of the individual, those efforts will prove futile.
Desire is the first key element of behavior change. Without desire, it’s impossible to develop any new habit. With desire, however, new habits are formed more quickly and easily.
One of the most interesting and effective strategies to help others change their behavior is to change our own behavior. By creating goals for ourselves, we are challenged to form new habits. The behavior changes we undergo nearly always influence those closest to us, over time.
