In this video Dr Sadaqat Ali talks about “change”. He starts with discussing the ingredients of change which first of all includes deciding what you want to change followed by taking a firm decision to bring that change. This than leads to vital behaviors that should be adopted for that change to occur. For these behaviors there are 6 supporting factors, Firstly see the personal motivation level, are you enough motivated to achieve that goal, Secondly do you have the ability to reach your goal which means are you holding enough skills and trainings to hit your desired target. Select one or more people in your life, from whom you can get inspired and reach your goals, called social motivation. Seek help from those who are able to help you preferably the experts, this is called social ability. Look into the reward and punishment system: focus more on rewarding rather than punishment. This is defined as structural motivation. Create environment around you, which can help you in achieving your goals called structural ability.

If you want to bring change in people, start from your own self then go and gather the people who can help you in achieving you change goals. Bring yourself in contact with people who have done this before and they can help you too. They have experience of everything and they got success when they did that, they have practical knowledge. We channelize our energies in things that don’t benefit us, we have to be very clear that what things in our lives need our special attention.
