HABITUAL CONTROL

Create A List

Now, its time to get down to the nitty-gritty of it all, your bad habits! Here, you will construct a list, identifying all of your bad habits, so you can take a birds-eye view of yourself and what changes must take place! Now, this is tried, tested and true and a brief warning here, you might look at yourself as a person you do not want to be, when finished writing out your list, although, that's perfectly fine... as we will provide you with all the tools to fix that! Think of this list as your personal portfolio (AKA...internal resume), that you will use for the job interview of a lifetime! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.developgoodhabits.com/break-bad-habit/ and see what they are saying! 

Acknowledgment

Fully understanding what your bad habits are will allow you to take corrective measures and as a result, gain 100% control of your life! You can identify your bad habits by first going through a list of habitual topics such as financial control, relationships, social engagements, organizational skill, etc.! Try aiming to make a list of about 40 topics or you can even use the topics listed here on the personal development page of this website, as there are 60 to choose from! Think about each topic as you write them down and when you have your topic list, think of all the bad habits you have in this area! Example: (financial control) is my topic and my bad habits are... shopping without a list, not saving money, spending over my budget or investing poorly, etc.! Either way, do your very best to dig deep into your bad habits in any topic you can think of! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://www.success.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-habits/ and see what they are saying! 

The Swap Out

When it comes to your list of bad habits, keep in mind that whatever bad habit you eliminate, you must replace it with a good habit and this is known as the swap out process! This is very easy to do! When you are looking at your bad habits list and you see all of your answers related to that individual topic, go through your list of answers and start working on that bad habit 1 at a time! As you are working on that bad habit (approximately 21 days to form a new habit), you then must think about something that you want to do, that would be a good habit and put that habit in the bad habit slot (replace it)! This is the swap out process and a very powerful tool to eliminate bad habits at their very core! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://jamesclear.com/how-to-break-a-bad-habit and see what they are saying!

Massive Action

The most critical part of creating a bad habits list and identifying what must change is the action behind making it happen! For you to eliminate a bad habit, you must work consistently on fixing it! You will need a rubber band or an elastic band of some type, the ones that work best are from the grocery store, typically wrapped around a stalk of celery or asparagus (the fat blue ones)! Wear this band around your wrist and every time you think about or do a bad habit that is on your list... pull back on that band hard and let it snap on your wrist! Yeah, it doesn't feel good but it will keep a painful thought close to your short term memory and soon enough you will not be thinking or doing this bad habit! This is the second backup plan as most people cannot stick to a list alone! For other’s opinions and more information on this topic, check out Googles #1 top-ranked website @... https://goodmenproject.com/featured-content/massive-action-snsw/ and see what they are saying!
