In today’s post we will talk about things to consider before starting a new habit. How far are you willing to change? Do you want to stay basically the same, but just adjust a few things here and there? Or are you ready for deep change? Both are viable options, but if you opt for the second one, you’ll need to gather all your spiritual, mental, and physical strength in order to achieve the change.
Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis. ~Martha Beck
Are small steps better or big leaps? It depends on the kind of change you want to effect. I would say that if you want to change an addiction, a leap is better. Years ago I was a heavy smoker. At first I tried was to get myself off smoking by gradually reducing the amount of cigarettes I smoked each day. That didn’t work for me because it led to obsessing about when I could smoke the next cigarette. The only thing that finally worked was to stop completely, from one moment to the next. However, if you want to create a new wholesome habit, incremental change works a lot better.
Come back tomorrow on more inspiration on things to consider building a habit for good.
