10 reasons to change challenge together
Band together for the Change Challenge!
Making changes to transform your life for the better is easier when you share hardships, triumphs, and goals with a partner or wrangle up your friends for a communal experience. The Change Challenge is about making small but impactful changes. Each little step leads to a giant stride towards your goal, and sharing your struggles and triumphs makes the trip more fun and rewarding.
Below are 10 motivating reasons to Change Challenge together!
It's one thing to let yourself down, after all, who'll know? But when you work in a group, you're more likely to keep the promises you made to yourself with the added element of wanting to "save face".
2. Share experiences
Nothing feels better when you're struggling then to know you're not the only one struggling. Sharing frustrations helps you sort through them faster and sharing victories always feels better with a *high five*.
3. Share tips
Sometimes it's that one tiny piece of advice that gets you over that hurdle. A new recipe, a cool workout, or how to stave off cravings can be the puzzle piece you couldn't quite find.
Sharing the good times is great, but when you hit the lows, you want someone near you who knowsexactlywhere you are; and better yet, how to help you climb out.
5. Keeps your purpose and goals focused
There are thousands of bits of information coming at you every day from all directions. It's easy to get distracted and let your goals get muffled. Working with people who have roughly the same goals and purpose, helps you see your own when things get foggy.
6. It's motivating
Seeing what they're doing fuels what you're doing. It might be a healthy competition among friends or the commradare of holding hands and jumping in together. Either way, seeing a friend succeed is proof you can succeed.
7. You stay interested longer
A conversation can die quickly when it's just you talking...to yourself, but get a group talking, and the conversation can take all kinds of motivating turns. As you get to know the people in your "changing' community, you become not just interested in your results, but theirs.
8. It makes it harder to quit
You know they'll come looking for you, asking where you are. Do you really want to have to explain, "I just didn't want to."? That fear alone is often enough to keep you in the game and over those rough spots. Your ego is a powerful tool. Use it to your advantage.
9. Cheering feels good!
It's proven that those who are cheered and encouraged have greater success. Who doesn't like a little "WOOT WOOT" for their hard work? Not only does it make you feel good in the moment, it makes you look forward to your next WOOTs.
10. It's just funner.
Some things are great to do on your own, but climbing over obstacles that have been in your way a long time is just funner, and a little easier, with friends.
