Changing habits is one of the hardest things to do.
They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit. The difficult part is to keep going after you’ve lost that initial zeal. First, I have to break old habits. If I want to grow, I have to do this.
I am going to take it one habit at a time. If I change in small increments in the beginning, making bigger changes will be much easier to accomplish.
I will start mine today. The first habit I am going to break is Procrastination. That has to be one of, if not the hardest habit to break.
I procrastinate either because I don’t want to do it, or, I know it needs to be done, but I don’t feel like doing it right then or even that day.
Sometimes I don’t understand why I procrastinate.
It is much easier to have good habits than bad; the good one’s you don’t have to break.
This might take me a little time, but I am going to work diligently at it.
I have to break this, or else I’ll continue to be the person I don’t want to be. I’ll continue to get frustrated with myself, and feel disappointed that I tried again, but failed.
Has anyone else felt this way? What bad habits do you need to get rid of in order to change to good ones?
