“Change might not be fast, and it isn’t always easy. But with time and effort, almost any habit can be reshaped.”
– Charles Duhiggs
It would be nice if we could have a magical formula and whenever we want to change something- just snap the fingers.
Well, it is not like this at all.
Changing yourself or changing your lifestyles does not have a formula. We are all different so you will have to find out your basis for understanding how your behaviors work and how they might change.
It is not enough to say: “I’m going to change this from today; or I will start doing this from today”- whatever it is, starting to run, starting a diet, starting a business.
You need to break the habit loop which consists of three components: a cue, a routine, and a reward.
To break this loop, you need a plan:
1. Identify the routine.
2. Experiment with rewards- I love rewards.
3. Isolate the cue- connect with a motivation.
5. Be patient- probably the most important step.
Learn to know yourself, your standards and your situation then learn how to change your habits to get to a better you, a better life for you.
