You need to change some things in your life!
Sounds like double speak I know – but it makes sense.
Except for habits.
I’ve been doing an exercise since the 7th July 2010, recommended by my guru of choice for the next 6 mths – Eben Pagan.
In your journal – on the left hand page write:
“If I continue to live my life this way…”
and on the right hand page you write:
“If I surround myself with success models…”
For each you complete ten sentences…left hand side…AS SOON AS YOU ARISE and right hand side…just before going to bed.
The first couple of days was hard. Now that I have been doing it for 21 days – the wiring is beginning to set. It’s taking less effort and now I feel that I can’t NOT do it.
Now I had other rituals before this one. And even if you don’t have a conscious ritual, trust me, you probably perform the same routine, day in, day out!
What I did by introducing Eben’s recommendation was to replace whatever I was doing first when I got up…with this new habit.
Focusing on changing habits is hard. Replacing is easier on the mind and before you know it – just like me – a new habit would have taken root.
And btw – you should try the exercise Eben recommends. It is going to change your life!
Let me know how you’ve replaced some habits in your life…
