To See the Whole Video, Go To - Changing Habits
Below is a transcription of this video This video is in a response to Seth Godin’s blog post from March 15 called, “Habit Number 7,” I retitled it for myself calling, “Changing Habits.” Godin confronts the myth that habits are just who we are and that’s absolutely not the truth. All habits are learned behavior. We originally got some juice or some value from our habits and then in most cases just took it a little too far. I guess that’s where we get into the realm of addiction.
A habit doesn’t need to be an addiction, but it’s especially the bad habits that we don’t necessarily want to have that is in our life on a repetitive basis. Habits can be changed. Better said, all habits can be replaced and I say that because it’s really hard to just get rid of a habit in the vacuum, but if you are replacing it with a better habit that’s much better. As far as eating junk food, stop eating junk food is a lot more challenging than eating healthy snacks or eating fruits and vegetables, you hear what I’m saying there. It is much simpler to replace a current habit with a better habit. Get cracking on creating better habits every day and you will find yourself in a much better place a year from now. Thanks a lot for listening and make today a great day.
