#91: Building Habits & Having Patience
Did you know studies have shown that 95% of what we do is unconscious and that only 5% is conscious actions, emotions, behaviors and decisions?!
Our unconscious serves us for many reasons. For example, if we had think about every little thing we did like breathing, how to hold a pen when we start to write or gulping water - we would dissolve into overstimulated puddles.
What we really want to talk about is in order to create a habit, an action that begins to feel unconscious, may take longer than what you had originally planned for. Which is not to be discouraging but to shed some light on realistic expectations. Awareness and setting proper expectations will set you up for success.
