Forming Habits by Josh Hinds

Forming habits - You had your plan all set. You knew exactly what you needed to do, maybe you even got off to a fantastic start! Then suddenly out of no where you realized that your goal is now out of sight. Does this sound familiar?

If you answered yes let me assure you that you're not alone! If this has happened to you here's an approach that might help. Reaffirm to yourself that most things are accomplished when we are able to form habits around them. Much in the same way that negative habits transpire in our lives so can we introduce positive ones. The thing to remember is that habits are formed while we practice (either subconsciously or not) repetition of them.

Laying out our goals clearly is only one step in attaining them. Just as important is forming habits that go along with the dreams we have for ourselves. How do I form habits you ask? I should say here that the exact number of times an event must be repeated for it to stick is going to vary a bit from person to person. However, I have heard it said that after 21 days of repetition it becomes a habit. Again this will most likely differ from person to person.

Creating habits is an excellent way to achieve our goals...Your friend in cyberspace, Josh Hinds
