Changing my habits
Monday, July 08, 2013
I hope by changing my habits to increase my joy. 40% of everything we do is done merely from habit (a statistic from Joyce Meyer's book, Making Good Habits, Breaking Bad Habits). A habit can be formed or broken in 30 days. Really???? That's it???? I'm huge on instant gratification and would like my habits to be changed right now, but I need to be realistic. But if I stick with it and don't QUIT like I am prone to do, my habits can be changed for the better. Vince Lombardi said that "Once you learn to quit, it becomes a habit", so I am going to unlearn quitting. I CAN and WILL change my bad habits.
Some habits I would like to break are:
3-Beating up on myself
5-Having a generally negative attitude
Mark Twain has said,"Habit is habit, and not to be flung out of the window by man (or woman), but coaxed downstairs a step at a time." So I figure by continuing to take small steps each day, I will break my bad habits.
