No. 1 Question You Need to Answer Before You Change Any Habit.

By PeopleLeaders | Communication

No 1 question you need to answer before you change any habit.

Answer this question…Why.

You need to look at your life, your situation and ask yourself seriously, Why do I want this? Why is it important to me? If you have enough whys the hows will take care of themselves. You will find a way.

See, you need to be able to create an outcome for yourself, the why has to be based on what you want, not on what you don’t want.

When we base it on what we don’t want, like not wanting to be overweight, we lose some weight and then many of us give up. However, if we look at it from the perspective of creating an outcome, like:

  • I want to be fit, strong and healthy so I can be role model for my children
  • I want to have enough energy to be the best at what I do
  • I want to be able to handle all the demands placed on me at work and not feel slammed at the end of the day

In order to change any habit you literally have to become a different person.

You will need to change the way you think and feel about the activity you want to transform. This is where it gets challenging.

First things first, let’s start with this. Why do you want to change?

Get the conversation happening in your head and let your body know to be ready for some changes.

In the following weeks I will share with you some short, practical tips and strategies so you EAT, THINK and MOVE better, because we know that feeling healthy, fit and strong are some of the best ways we can be our best at home and at work.
