Habit Formation for Continual Success
Understanding the following concept will change your life for the better. Applying this concept to your daily routine will dramatically increase your desired results.
We are quickly approaching the new year, 2021, the time when people in general begin thinking about the things they will do differently or better than this year.
Unfortunately, many new years resolutions do not last very long for various reasons depending on the individual. A big reason that people quit their new years resolutions is due to a lack of habit, along with weak reasons why they are pursuing that resolution.
It is of utmost importance to allow your new diet or work out plan, for example, to manifest itself over time in the form of a habit. Habits generally take anywhere from 21-30 days to reach maturation. If you happen to quit before the maturation period, that means you didn't allow enough time for your body and mind to internalize the new action.
The following section contains simplified summaries on how to form habits in varying areas of your life that you may want to improve upon.
Choose a workout plan. Choose a gym or an outdoor area that is away from your comfortable home. Stick to the plan for at least 30 days.
Choose a diet plan that fits your needs. Get rid of food / drink that is not on that plan. Buy groceries that only fit within that plan. Stick to the plan for at least 30 days.
Decide what type of relationship(s) you desire. Be loving towards others. Stay away from dating apps. Go out and meet people with similar interests. Be yourself. Do this for at least 30 days (usually takes less time than this to form solid relationships).
Take a while to pray and ask God to reveal truth about himself and who he is. Commit to a prayer/study plan for at least 30 days.
Understand the value of money and the options it can bring into your life. Employ an abundance mindset. Use saving and investing to your advantage. Pay close attention to your finances for at least 30 days and save/invest a portion of each paycheck you recieve.
Make a habit of spending quiet time alone in the mornings before getting ready for the day. Focus on your shifting your state by being grateful for things in your life. Do this for at least 30 days in a row.
To piggyback on the previous topic of money, diversifying your portfolio into cryptocurrencies can be a rewarding venture. Make a habit of researching different projects in the digital asset space and commit to investing a portion of your paycheck into crypto over the next 30 days.
One big key to building up a habit is to compile a list of reasons why the new habit is important to you. What benefits will performing this action bring to your life? Spend time composing a list of reasons why you must succeed in this particular area of your life and what will happen if you don't.
The new year is right around the corner. It is best to get set up for success now before the new year so you can be ahead of the curve mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, and emotionally.
I believe that 2021 will be full of good surprises. Looking forward to the adventurous, joy-filled journey ahead. ✦
