My sister bought a very interesting book about habits last weekend. After every paragraph she stopped and shared with me some interesting facts. While I was making my profiteroles, I listened half to what she had to say. And then one thing caught my attention.
Some people say that they want to change the situation they are in, or “always” end up in. This can and WILL be changed by one thing; habit!
Hmmm… interesting I said, while melting some chocolate for my profiteroles. Then she started reading an example given in the book. This person has been observed during a period of time to see what will happen when someone changes a behavior. What are the outcomes when a bad habits falls out of someones’ system.
THE EXAMPLE FROM THE BOOK:
A young lady who failed in almost all her classes, she smoked, she was eating unhealthy, she was always tired, she was overweight and she felt unhappy. She changed one little thing, just one thing, and that changed all the other situations in her life… SHE STOPPED SMOKING. This led her to work on her discipline, she started eating healthy (automatically, but I believe that’s just the way your brain works), she started exercising, losing weight, graduated from the university, and felt happy.
Just one thing changed the whole cycle of bad habits, and “bad” situations. HUH! This is funny, maybe I should stop smoking as well and see what magical moments are waiting for me…
Anyways, change ONE bad habit and see the cycle that makes you feel like going into circles break down.
I forgot the name of the book, however, I will ask my sister and I will post it later on my blog.
Good luck sweet readers!!!
