Why do some people make lasting changes while others have a hard time getting past the initial hurdles? That is the question that began my fascination with mindset. Anyone can use willpower to create change in their life, but not everyone creates lasting change and then builds upon that change to grow to the next level. Utilizing the power of leverage is a great way to create the lasting change that we desire.
There are two forces that motivate us to do what we do: the desire to avoid pain or the desire to gain pleasure. To access leverage, we must associate massive pain to not changing now, and massive pleasure to changing immediately.
