Breaking Bad Habits Now or Later
How many times have you heard it takes 21 days to create or break a habit? Probably as many times as you've tried to make a change to your life.
Creating a new lifestyle is nothing more than applying a different set of actions day-to-day. In doing so, you are forming a mental link that strengthens each time you repeat the action.
The guys in the white coats call this "context-dependent repetition." It's a dynamic automatic behavior that saves your brainpower in a busy world. Research has also found that while the common habit-forming time is 66 days, it's also possible to form a new habit instantly if your belief and desire to change are strong.
How cool is that?
That means you can set a new habit in the next few minutes. If you want bad enough, you can change right now instead of taking 66 days to do it.
I say 21 days is for Blackjack, and 66 days is for ordinary people. You are not ordinary. Why not get it done now and keep moving?
