Today we dive into habits and they have the potential to decrease our discipline and weaken our mind.
Yesterday I was doing sprints in a random Moe’s shopping center in upstate New York. This morning, I did a workout dancing at a Montreal nightclub from 830-10am, worked on my dancing skills, and did a couple of miles learning the two step with locals. When you are determined and disciplined there is always a way to maintain your habits that set you free to proactively control your mornings and evenings. I will find a way everyday to do my gratitude journal and get 30 minutes of exercise because that’s what allows me to feel and think at my highest level.
Building habits is going to be different for everyone. But maintaining habits is one of the biggest things holding us back from freedom, fulfillment, and gratification. Everyone has the power to create a system that works for themselves. The reality is we continue to put maintaining habits at the bottom of our priority list. That going to gym goal in January starts to turn into “I don’t feel like it” in February on a rainy Monday and then school, work, Netflix, dinners with friends, sleeping in late, and hangovers suddenly come out of nowhere unexpectedly and you don’t keep up with your goals. There are two problems with this from achieving your full potential.
What is The Biggest Mistake With Habits?
When we don’t maintain our habits, we complain, spread negativity, feel like shit, and worst of all we gain self-doubt and blame ourselves. If you don’t maintain a habit, INTENTIONALLY ENJOY THIS MOMENTS TO THE FULLEST, BUT DON’T COMPLAIN OR SPREAD YOUR NEGATIVITY TO OTHERS. Life is hard enough. Don’t self-suffocate your mind because you didn’t do something. You either go all-in enjoying the moment not worrying about anything and not harming anyone, or go all-in growing and improving! Finding the balance with the intentional mindset is the play.
