Making New Habits to Better Your Life

Habits, oh those foul habits. Habits are acquired from training, influences, observance, and practice. We acquire a lot of habits throughout our life.  Some are good ... some not so good. Keep the good habits, but if one wants to better their life the not so good habits need to be kicked to the curb girlfriend.  Eliminating bad habits however isn't simple, especially if a dependency is involved. For this reason, we need to learn how to change your habits. 

Individuals wander through life making excuses. Anytime an individual sees something complicated, they'll frequently make excuses why they can't deal with the issue.  I've certainly been there my friends.  This is a rough-cut problem in the world, which we’ve all heard 1000000000000s of times. If you're out to better your life, you need to state, “This is something that blocks me from accomplishment and I have the strength to change it".

The first key to success is to get off the making excuses train and flip the switch and think positively about situations.     

Do you think negatively? "I can’t alter this. My life is full of bunk. I can’t swing it any longer. Why me?" If you spend your time believing negatively and making negative statements, commit to changing what you say to yourself and others today.  

Once you begin to make changes to improve your life, begin small. Rather than jumping the gun, take little steps to success. Too many times individuals try to change overnight. This only leads to frustration, back-sliding and eventually giving up.

When you're working to alter your life and habits make certain you seek support and feedback. You don't have to walk the road to success alone. Feedback can come from friends, loved ones, a colleague you look up to and admire, a book or a podcast, etc.
