Where there is a will there is a way. Er no.
Experience has probably taught you that well-intentioned actions can be thwarted and you end up feeling worse than before. But it is NOT because you lack willpower or are weak willed. According to neuroscientist Jud Brewer M.D., Ph.D., the secret to creating a habit that you can stick with is to become ‘enchanted’ with it. He says that when we try new things we are, for a while, really enchanted with them.
So, remembering how this feels and focusing on the “Bigger Better Offer (BBO)” of what that new habit will bring you (in other words the ‘why’ of doing it) is key.
While we regard people with good habits and successful lives as being highly self-controlled, what they are really good at is understanding how situations influence our actions. They create the right environment for desirable repeated actions. In addition, they eliminate friction and the temptation to fall back into an old familiar old pattern of behaviour.
In other words, they embrace the BBO and set themselves up for success. Much better than a power you can’t really control hey?
