A bizarre little known fact about habits
Habits are like a warm bed. It’s easy to get into and tough to get out of. This you may have heard about plenty of times. What folks typically do not realize about habits is that they usually do not start with THOUGHT. You don’t become the thing you THINK about all the time. You become the thing you DO all the time. This DOING eventually turns into long lasting habits that are tough to fight.
Habits are so tough because our brilliant brain plays a huge trick on us. It suggests that we always have a CHOICE. We can choose to do something about the habit any moment. So when the habit we want to change comes about, guess what happens? “There is always tomorrow”, your brain tells you. Tada! You are slipping straight back into the habit.
So here it is important to be “in the moment”. Make a difference in the moment, the here and now. Pushing this off to another day only delays your success in life.
