It's a new year, a new day, a new opportunity to choose.
Research shows that it takes 66 days to build a habit. What we also know is that your life as you know it today was built by habit. Your thoughts, words and actions have been programmed and repeated time after time. Living those consistently over time has created the habits of doing or not doing.
If you have the results you want in life then awesome! However, if you don't it will only take 66 days to turn a habit that is not working into one that will. Now keep in mind, the moment you choose to start, you will begin to see results, even day 1. Be open to observing the changes inside and out.
After 66 days the new habit is more automatic but along the way, you are experiencing yourself in a different way. If you have ever wanted more confidence, courage, self-trust, self-esteem, influence, productivity, effectiveness, connection, power, joy, happiness and peace, it all starts with a CHOICE to be your best self.
You are probably asking HOW DO I DO THIS?
Get clear you are in a new moment in time. What worked in the past may not work now or in the future for your desired results.
Be willing to UPDATE the thoughts, words and actions that allow you to live a life you love. The past does not define the future. Your current thoughts, words and actions will. You are only as limited as you allow yourself to be.
Start SMALL! Consistent action over time will create the momentum that will create the desired results. It will be easier to adjust your actions if you are purposeful and intentional with doing the right thing to create a new habit versus just any old thing to get through the day.
Start NOW! Interrupt the limiting belief that it's not a good time or that something else is more important. Your capacity to handle everything that you have made more important than you will be enhanced when you are being your best self.
Trust yourself to figure it out step by step. That means the actions, support, information, scheduling, organizing, learning, etc. to be your best self.
Acknowledge & Celebrate the steps you are taking to become your best self daily. It is one choice at a time!
You never know who is counting on you to be the leader in your own life so they can step up and do the same. You matter and what you bring to the world matters!
