If all you do is stop a bad habit you leave yourself open to start a new bad habit. The default process replaces bad with bad which also means it replaces good with good.
When you stop a bad habit you must consciously replace it with a good new habit. Make the effort to replace bad with good. Use correctly formed and worded affirmations – all very complex not simply as you often see most gurus teach. They leave out most of the essential parts. Then people wonder why they fail to manifest what they speak in the affirmations every morning and every night and paste up on their vision boards.
Affirmations, as taught by most gurus, leave out key pieces – it’s one of my soapboxes. You can find details in many other articles and programs I created because there is so very much to know. Affirmations do work—100% of the time. You are living all your affirmations, made unconsciously, right now!
Back to forming habits…
Be Persistent and consistent using your new affirmations and behaviors for 28 days. And make sure your affirmations have a Personal Meaning Quotient (PMQ is a method I created to evaluate your affirmations and goals) at 100. With a Personal Meaning Quotient of 100 there is NO WAY you do not manifest them. Anything less than 100 may or may not happen.
Now I realize that most of the people who read this information will not use it. You see, people pay lots of lip service to making life changes but few take any action to make it happen.
Most people are lazy – physically and emotionally lazy. They want instant gratification. They want change NOW and they do not want to make the effort, to expend the energy, or to experience their emotions.
Look at all the people in unhappy relationships. Yet they stay in that deep hurt rather than take the steps to end it. They do not want to go through the pain and the action it takes to create a new life by ending the known life.
The other reason few people actually change is because it takes lots of energy to think accurately: to think and live in the reality of things rather than living with the appearances of the world and things. The fact is that 2% of people actually think. 3% think they think and 95% of people would rather die than think!
Stop a moment. Notice when most people want to make a decision they go to their neighbors, their family, their friends – for advice. Are those people experts in the field? NO! It would take work to seek out expert advice from many sources, to educate oneself and make a wise choice.
You gotta invest time, energy and effort to reap desired results.
People are afraid of change. They’d rather stay stuck in the misnomer comfort zone—really your know zone.
I think it is way more scary to look forward to a lifetime that looks as it does now–seeing as how you are here looking to make changes I assume you are not living your dreams – yet.
Make the effort to create the habits that put living your desired life on automatic. You have the next 28 days to make it happen.
The question is, will you DO it?
