Creating New Habits
Making Them Stick
on your inspiring vision of a better self. It takes tremendous
courage, will, concentration and self-compassion to break old
habits and learn new ones.
List the downsides of not adopting a new habit.
List key benefits of acquiring a new habit and
yourself enjoying these new benefits.
Engage your subconscious mind. All habits are operated by the
subconscious mind that works much faster than your conscious
mind. Habits are what do without having to consciously think
about it. While you are consciously aware of only your own
thoughts, your subconscious mind is paying attention to the
other things, including
your habits. By daily practice, you can
imprint the right programming and learn a habit within a matter
of weeks. Any thought you repeat over and over, anything you do
over and over – program into your subconscious mind. When you
learn to imprint the right programming into the subconscious,
you will make your actions effortless and natural.
Commit to practice a new habit dailys.
Consistency and high frequency is critical if you want to make a
new habit stick fast. Develop
a new habit by practicing it daily for at least three weeks to
make it nearly automatic and easy to maintain.
Start small and simple. A too complex task may demotivate you.
You can create a new habit with a small amount of initial
discipline. For instance, if you wish to exercise or meditate
for an hour a day, first make the habit to do so for ten minutes
and build on that.
Look for and use every opportunity to practice a new habit as
much as possible to make it automatic. Challenge yourself to
live a different way. If you can make it through the initial
resistance-to-change phase, your new habit becomes much easier
to sustain and run on autopilot. If you like competition or need
a company, find a buddy who will go along with you, or spend
some time with people who model the habits you want to mirror.
Remove bad temptations from your mind and environment. Make it
difficult for old habits to tempt you, especially in the first
thirty days Restructure your environment and adequately replace
the lost needs with the desired ones. For instance, if you wish
to eat healthy, remove unhealthy food from your kitchen and stay
away from fast food restaurants.
Learn forward from setbacks. Try your best, but don’t expect
all your attempts to change your old deep-rooted habits to be
successful immediately. Your ultimate success largely depends on
how you think about failure. Be a
– learn from failures and setbacks. Just as you develop habits
in your behavior, you also develop habits in your thoughts. If
you treat every situation as a learning opportunity, you will
continually move ahead.
Develop a passion for your new habit.
