How To Break Bad Habits (And Form Good Ones)

Get ready to change your life for the better. This article is about helping you unlock the secret to live the life you really want. Imagine having control over the positive and negative actions in your life. It's a secret that can be applied to any area of our lives. You have the ability to do accomplish anything in life by applying this technique. Keep reading to find out how you can stop the negative habits that hold you back and achieve the life of your dreams.

Our habits---those things we do consistently every day---are essentially affected by our visualization. Visualization is the way we use our imagination to view the positive and negative attributes of a particular action or object. Positive thoughts about a habit are the reinforcement that keeps an action in our lives. This means that if we visualize the action as bad more than we view it as good, our mind will stop that habit. It's automatic.

The key to eliminating a bad habit is to balance visualizations of what is good about the habit than what is bad about it. This begins by identifying why we do a particular habit, (usually what we enjoy about it) and why we won't it to stop. The next step in the process is to consistently counter any positive visualization about the habit with its negative. As long as we keep the visualizations balanced, the habit will diminish. When this practice is cultivated properly we see these bad habits fall by the wayside and find the liberty to follow the life we enjoy.

  1. Great post. I believe that not only breaking bad habits is important, but also replacing them with good ones. If you don't replace them with new ones oyu may go back to the old bad ones. If you want to find out more about self development, check out my blog. I have new stuff every day.
