How To Change Your Negative Habits To Reach Your Goals

How To Change Your Negative Habits To Reach Your Goals

Hey hey heyyyy!

How are you doing on this lovely Monday?

I am doing well. Thank you for asking!

Today I wanted to share with you some powerful information that will support you and I, in reaching our goals in 2021!

I have a lot of goals that I wrote down that I want to cross of my list, however, my most challenging goal to stick to at the moment are my fitness goals.

I enjoy working out, however, it is hard for me to stay consistent.

Why?

Because I am more comfortable sitting on my tail watching Dish Nation lol.

I don’t want this to be my story in 2021 and beyond.

I was listening to this book titled, “The Coaching Habit” by Daniel Mate and I realized that the reason why I don’t work out consistently is because I haven’t made a habit out of it.

A habit is an subconscious pattern of behavior that is formed through repeating an action on a regular basis.

After listening a little more, I realized that our habits are synonymous with our comfort zones.

Did you know that there was a study that was done that stated at LEAST 45% of our waking behavior is based off our habits.

We all have positive habits and negative habits that help or prevent us from reaching certain goals.

I have identified my habits that keep me stuck in my comfort zone, as it pertains to my health goals for 2021 and I am doing something about it.

I know for sure that there are goals that you want to reach in your life and there are negative habits that are preventing your from reaching your goals.

My goal is to empower you today with a strategy that will support you in improving your habits to reach the goals you struggle with in 2021.

Lets get into it!

  1. Get clear on the benefits?

What will you get out of achieving this goal?

How will achieving this goal be of benefit to others?

Write down your responses!

For me,

I know I want a flat stomach and stronger arms. I also know that by me eating better and healthier, there is a greater chance that I will not die from disease and I will be here to meet my grandchildren. That is important to me!

2. Identify your triggers!

A trigger is an event or situation that causes you to go against yourself.

If you do not know your triggers, you will not be able to change.

For me,

I have realized that when it comes to working out, if it is not the first thing I do when I get out of bed, it is NOT happening for the day.

3. Develop micro habits

I never heard of this before until I read the book.

A micro habit is a task that you add you add to your routine that takes less than 120 seconds to complete.

If you engage in this habit every day for no longer than 2 minutes a day, you will eventually engage in that activity without thinking about it.

For example,

I want to create a habit of working out. Instead of jumping in full throttle and saying I am going to workout 30 minutes a day, when I am not use to working out, I can start by working 1-2 minutes a day. By doing that, I will develop the habit of working out and reduce the chances of me not reaching my goal

Makes sense?

Well I am going to end right here.

I don’t want it to be too long. It is long enough. Lol.

I hope that the information I shared with you is useful and will support you in replacing your negative habits with positive habits!

I encourage you to join my private fb group where we will continue the conversation.
