Change is difficult. Even if a behavior, belief, or relationship is painful, change is difficult. One of the reasons change can be tough is a psychological principle called cognitive dissonance. This means that as you move forward with a new behavior, belief, or relationship, you may feel initially positive. But then, discomfort sets in because it’s unfamiliar. Often people give up on their goals at this time of discomfort. If you really want to achieve your dreams, you must be willing to tolerate the unfamiliar and the pain of discomfort.

It will take hard work and the commitment to stay the course, even when things get tough – and they will.
