Lasting Behaviour Change Is Not a Quick Fix

$15.00

Changing behaviour in a way that brings true and lasting behaviour change is not, never has been nor will it ever be a ‘quick fix’. Much to the displeasure of many, there is no pill or any other miracle cure that will instantaneously offer lasting behaviour change. At best we have solutions that offer short-term relief; however, relief and solutions-based strategies offer what I call short-term comfort which in turn leads to bigger challenges down the track, that is long-term discomfort.

Practising and Making Mistakes

$15.00

One of the triggers for many people’s anxiety and thus unwanted or non-preferred behaviours, words, thoughts and feelings is what we call ‘perfectionism’ at Fabic. Some people are impacted so severely by perfectionism that they are not willing to try a new task or activity or stop trying after a previous attempt was unsuccessful. 

The simple message in this chart highlights the natural consequences that occur (i.e. learning new skills) when we are willing to practise and make mistakes.

Choosing and Being Responsible

$15.00

This chart is a simple reminder highlighting the irrefutable fact that in truth we are unable to change any person’s behaviour. Thus, in the process of true and lasting behaviour change we must remember: 

The only person’s behaviour we can change is our own and thus: 

‘Each person is responsible for their own behaviour choices and 
their own outcomes in life.’

Acknowledge vs. Ignore and Bury

$15.00

As is the case for all of us, life presents challenging situations. 

In this chart our body is represented by the column in the middle, a veritable storage pot. In our body we tend to store, amongst many other things, our experiences of and reactions to life. 

This chart is another example of an I Choose Chart demonstrating that, when life does occur, we have two choices: option 1 (release the experience from the body) and option 2 (store the experience in our body to be released at a later time, thus impacting our experience of life until then).
