Motivation / / December 19, 2019
1. Do not leave yourself loopholes
Imagine a person who wants to stop eating sweets or drinking alcohol. He promises himself to refrain all day and in the evening to eat a small piece of dessert or a drink. As a result, the whole day, he can not think about anything else. Because of this, get rid of the bad habits of a hundred times harder.
If you really want to change their behavior, give up the idea that something can be done by 98%.
The sequence is very important, otherwise you will always spend energy on it, to motivate yourself. Will you promise yourself to change, but always leave a loophole. You seem to advance convince yourself that can not handle.
But you are stronger than you think. You do not need a loophole, and so you do it. Of course, in the process of self-improvement, you will be hard, it will seem that you kill a part of yourself. So it is: you kill the old part to new can grow and thrive.
2. Change one part of life, to change all the rest
Man can not do right in one area of life, until he is mistaken in others.
Positive changes in one area of life, even a very small, give a powerful impetus. The main thing - to use the resulting motivation to day-to-day change and other areas of life. For example, every day, ask yourself: "Do I have improved by at least 1% your physical, emotional, psychological and mental health?"
The better you get, the more you want to improve on. The more learn, the better you understand that you still have much to learn. The realization that today you are better than they were yesterday, inspires. Just imagine what you can achieve tomorrow!
Scary if you do not know where to start. The main thing - to start with something. Yes, change does not happen at once, but they start with one action.
3. Believe that you can achieve anything
You will not achieve more than what you are, in your opinion, you can achieve. So the first thing to change your beliefs. Ask yourself:
- Do I have enough big goals? (And if I have any long-term goals?)
- What happens if I increase them in 10 times?
- I believe in your success? Or just pretending?
Deep down, most people do not believe that their life can be extraordinary. Their ideal future just does not seem justified their purpose, to which you can aspire. But if you want to change your habits and develop, you need to believe that you can to become better. Try to imagine something more and better than what you have now, and go for it.
4. Change your environment
Marshall Goldsmith, coach
If we do not we form and have no control over their environment, it will generate and control us.
We used to think that one of our desires enough to overcome habits, down the years. But when the environment remains unchanged, we should not expect that your behavior will change significantly.
Of course, not easy to change the environment. You do not even seem that some aspects can not be changed - it's natural. Start with what you can change. For example, do not tolerate mediocrity and those who are willing to put up with it.
5. Every day, take a little bit better decisions
The main problem is that we can not wait to see the results. Gradual little progress does not seem to us to progress. Because of this, often frustrated attempts to change. Not seeing quick results, people give up and go back to old habits.
But the man is incredibly flexible. You can adapt and change in yourself almost anything. The perfect life as you imagine it is possible. To become better and achieve the desired, just day by day make decisions better than yesterday.
