In this video Dr Sadaqat Ali speaks about Changing Behaviors. Dr Sadaqat Ali is a renowned addiction psychiatrist and project director of Willing Ways Pakistan 

Dr Sadaqat Ali talks about changing behaviors and indicates that someone changes their behavior under two main circumstances, either they are in pain or there is some aim/pleasure which they want to achieve. The baseline is ‘the change is constant’. Change asks for smart work rather than hard work which means rather than focusing on results, keep your focus on behaviors. Set your target, and define the specific behaviors needed to achieve that goal. Changing your own behavioral patterns can help you feel more confident in your own abilities and increases your self esteem. Surround yourself with people having exemplary behaviors and discover the vital behaviors from them that you can inculcate in your life. When it comes to help someone else change, the main ingredient however remains the same which is to define the vital behaviors needed to adopt so to bring change.  We have to find out our own good behaviors which are bringing out good results and are beneficial for us. First define the vital behaviors in yourself that are already bringing in some results. This will help us exactly define what behaviors needs nourishment rather than focusing on our trivial behaviors. So with multiple spheres of life adopt one or two vital behaviors and good results will follow you. For more learning you can also watch another video of Dr Sadaqat Ali titled as Autism
