Access to success
Ever wonder why you habitually do something you’d prefer not to do? Overeating, not exercising, self criticism, drinking too much, not taking time for yourself, procrastination . . .
Thought suppression doesn’t work. You may be able to resist for a period of time with will power but this is stressful on the body and mind. When we’re trying to stop a particular habit it consumes our thoughts. This actually makes things more difficult as it creates a constant battle against the habit. If we take a cold hard look we’ll find that on some level we accept this behaviour as normal, we make excuses for why it occurs or blame someone else. Wouldn’t it be far more productive to think about what you want rather than what you don’t want? I challenge you to find a new habit you want to incorporate that provides ‘what you WANT in your life’ and focus on doing it for 30 days. You needn’t worry if you get off to a bad start just restart your 30 day challenge again from that point. Even if you can’t do 30 days I’ll bet you’ll have more of want you want in your life.
