Do you want to change ?
Changing is hard because it implies revising little things on a daily basis. I wanted to have a better life, be less anxious, and eat healthier. How come, after eight months, I still feel like I’m in the same position?
Now I’m starting to know why:
- I depended too much on my motivation
- I wanted drastic changes, right now
- I viewed myself as a failure
- I don’t even know who I am
I recommend it to people who also feel lost into building goals. The previous list above becomes a path to new solutions:
- Motivation is NOT a source of daily habits. Repetition is what counts; what motivates you to brush your teeth? Not much; you just do it.
- If you make drastic changes, chances are you’re going to be disappointed when you fail. Start as small as you can, so that it’s almost impossible to refuse.
- You think you’re a failure, but is it a useful thought if you want to change your way of living?
- You don’t know who you are; create your identity. This step is important if you want to start breaking bad habits and building new ones. All the things you do constantly are actually a result of who you are.
So, are you ready to walk on your own path with tiny steps ?
