Have you ever questioned the habits you have? Do you use successful habits? When we considered how to feel good at your goals and putting those goals into action, we mentioned 6 tips that you can do today to make that happen.
Here we are going to discuss the first of your tips – using successful habits.
Sadly, there is a type of thinking that negates our proactively taking on new goals. This type of thinking also causes us to question any one of our goals at any time. The danger in thinking like this is that we don’t always recognize that is what’s going on!
This is not how we use successful habits, quite the opposite. Our delay in taking the steps to complete any one of our goals can also be a way of avoidance. This avoidance, though unintentional, is also … procrastination.
Why Do I Keep Procrastinating?
Procrastination can cause us to sit idling away, become stuck in a rut, and even derail us right off our planned goal path!
Ironically, procrastination can actually be our own habitual planning. No, I honestly didn’t want to hear that one either when I uncovered it in my research!
The good news is that our awareness that we have an unsuccessful habit going on has a lot of DRIVING POWER. When we recognize that these hidden and disguised habits just don’t work, it can initiate within us an acceptance to change those habits.
Our success in completing a goal is the result of the successful habits we now begin to use to achieve it.
Successful New Habits
Successful new habits don’t just happen because of our thinking about them. Nor do they happen by our simply repeating some random activity enough times that it becomes a habit.
They also don’t happen just because we desire to accomplish goals.
Successful new habits do begin to take shape when something happens to trigger, or cause to happen, an actual ACTION on our part that will drive us into motion toward our goal.
What are some of those actions?
- Be deliberate.
- Be committed.
- Become familiar with details of what your new habit includes.
Why become familiar with those details?
Because a more thorough perspective of this habit you desire to have will help you. You will be able to begin to recognize events and activities within your lifestyle and daily living that you can do (or stop doing) so that they WILL support your new successful habits!
Setting goals toward healthier living is very rewarding. Now that you have some good ideas on getting started in using successful habits, how are you feeling about your goals?
