The first step to changing a habit is to be aware that something you’re doing IS a habit that might not be serving you. Sometimes the most terrible thing about a habit is that there is lack of awareness that it’s even affecting your life in a way that you’d rather it didn’t. When you’re habits are running you, it can cause you to run on the same track of failure or substandard conditions in your life over and over and OVER.



We could think that a habit can’t really be all that bad, but as it says in scroll one of the Greatest Salesman in the World written by Og Mandino, “In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits. Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.” It goes on to say that all men and women are slaves to their habits, and that our bad habits have already marked out a path which threatens to imprison our future. Then, “Therefore, if I must be a slave to habit, let me be a slave to good habits.” But how are we supposed to accomplish the feat of changing our habits? We need to choose a new habit to REPLACE the habit we want to release and let go of – one that we know will be key to our success, and practice it every day 3 times per day for 30 days (and beyond) until it is a habit and some subconscious reprogramming has taken place! To believe we can commit to something that ‘big’ we might need to accomplish it first in another way that isn’t directly related to our success. I suggest reading the book by OG Mandino and following exactly his instructions of reading. This will give you the confidence you need to allow yourself to become aware of habits that might not be serving you, and the confidence to select a habit to REPLACE with a new habit and do it. Let me tell you, it is so totally worth it!
