When I was young, and I always wondered why our mother would discipline us by making us get on our knees with our hands behind head. We had to remain in that position anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the severity of the offense.
I came to realize that she was disciplining us for our failure to do our shores or homework. Our mom was teaching us the importance of taking action. The sweeping, the dusting, the homework required that we would actually get off the couch from watching TV and do it.
A lot of people say they can’t lose weight, stop smoking, Or stop any bad habit that affects their well-being. Most of the time the issue is that the person cannot give up a bad habit, the issue is that they are not committed and disciplined to take action, they aren’t committed to do the things they need to do to change the bad habit.
As Tony Robbins says change your habit and change your outcome. In order for things to change, we have to change the way we think. For us to get in shape requires for us to get up a little earlier, so that we can walk outside, or go to the gym to exercise.
Finally, enjoy the small victories as you work to change bad habits. Those daily small victories lead to an increase in self confidence and a more enjoyable and transformed life.
