Creating a habit
Have you heard that to create a habit it takes 21 days? Apparently if you do something for 21 days consecutive it becomes second nature.
You hit a few phases like:
- oh this is easy
- oh not so easy
- I don’t think I can do it
- oh I can’t do it because of this…
- oh it’s not working anyway why continue
But if you fight through this phase, you reach a point which becomes a little easier again, until it’s not that big of a deal anymore.
Tips for fighting through the tough phase:
. Realize you reached the hard phase, but you know if you don’t give up is going to get better
. Realize that if doesn’t work out in the end at least you are trying to better yourself
. Ask yourself daily, how will I feel after I finish? how will I feel if I don’t do it?
. Realize that if you don’t start now you won’t ever do it, and realize how long have you been wanting to do it and have pushed for later
. Don’t let anything stop you, going on vacation? holidays? birthday? a cold? fight through it…
. Reward yourself in the end of each week, you deserve it.
C’mon, Let’s try it!!!
