One thing I know for sure are habits are a powerful force. They can help you be amazingly successful or get you in a lot of trouble. My 90 Day Coaching Program is centered around the concept of creating habits and leveraging thier power.
I recently relearned the power of habits when once again I am faced with kicking the diet soda habit. I stop for awhile but find myself going back. Why? Because drinking diet soda is a habit, one I have had for three decades. I am also not 100% committed to giving it up. I would say at this point it is more like 92%
However I am on the path to once again breaking the habit. You might think why try if it hasn’t worked in the past. Just because something doesn’t work the first 25 (or more) times you try it doesn’t mean it won’t work. I refuse to give up and I know that evenually I will manage to change the habit.
I once read that is doesn’t matter how many times you try, it only matters that you keep on trying. And I believe success and habits fall into that category. It takes time to make change. How much time I can’t really say. I know for me in this area it is taking a lot of times and tries. Other habits though have been easier to manage and create so I know it can be done.
Tap into your success and levearge that. I know that the process of change works you just have to keep working it. Don’t give up and don’t let what seems to be failure discourage you. Failure is only fatal if you let it stop you.
Here’s to taking Action
