If they are giving us great results obviously we need to keep them,but if they just take us in circles we definitely need to change them...Make sens doesn't it?Yes, it does but not that simple.Most people need help with that.
First we need to ask ourselves if our good old habits/belief still serve us, and the only way we can get a good answer to this question is if we have a written Purpose,Vision,Goals so we actually know where we are going.
How are we going to get there if we don't know where we are going right?
I was asked today: So how do you decide what new habit you want to create?Very important, we got to ask ourselves the right questions...
If we ask ourselves the wrong questions we will always get the wrong answers.
- Where am I going in life?(What do I want to achieve?)
- What is the one habit I can add/change today that will take me toward my Purpose faster?
- What is the one thing that I don't feel good about and just sits on my shoulders?
Example:Couple of years ago I realized I was doing exactly what I used to hate my mother doing...nagging people I loved (we copy our parents behaviour and we call it a HABIT)
Wasn't giving me great results aider....
So recognized I was doing it - Made a conscious decision I wanted to change that - It was hard work at first to just mind my own business but trough repetition I changed/created a new HABIT.
Obviously this was one example but we can apply the same method to anything in life,to our business,our health,relationships etc.
Repetition is the key to changing any Habit.
We created our old Habits trough repetition they become automatic, and the same way we create new ones.
What New Habit did you create?LH
