Want to pick up a new habit or break an old pattern?
Part of any new habit is making it past the 1st month. Thinking we must give up something for an entire lifetime is overwhelming to consider so many times we give up or never get started.
For instance, here are some things I have considered lately:
– cutting out eggs & dairy
– getting up earlier
– cutting out the news
– intermittent fasting
– reading an hour a day
Other ideas I’ve heard are to become a better listener to your partner, establish an exercise program, introducing yourself to someone new each day.
Whatever it is, to commit to it for the rest of your life can be daunting!
So there’s a powerful and simple technique I learned from the book “Personal Development for Smart People”, and it’s trying on a new habit for 30 days. That’s it! A 30 day experiment.
Why not try it on for 30 days. After all, we can do anything for 30 days!
At the end of 30 days you’ll decide if you want to continue. If you experience a positive result, you’ll have gone far enough to establish a new behavior as a habit making it easier to continue because now you’ve got momentum on your side. Or at the end, you’re free to return to the old way.
When will you begin and what will you try on?

Struggling over a negative situation?
Here’s a Quick Tool to get you feeling good!
Can you think of a time when you may have been so focused on a negative situation…. It could have been about a about a particular person or issue at work or perhaps even in your personal life, that you rehashed the thought over & over & over again and you weren’t sure you would be able to let it go?
That’s what happened to me at exactly 3:23AM this morning. There it was, front & center in my head, this little negative situation I had been giving way too much attention, energy & focus to!
But I couldn’t shut it off – I was rehashing every negative aspect and why I had the right to feel the way I did and on & on & on. My own personal pity party in the middle of the night!
Eventually, (I have no idea what time it was) I came to the conscious realization that hey, I’m feeling some negative emotion here. That was my warning bell that the Law of Attraction is at work matching my feelings, which meant that in that very moment I was in the process of attracting more of what I didn’t want!
Ouch! that doesn’t make sense…. I don’t want more of this stuff, so thank you for that warning bell, time to RESET! (more…)
