It takes 66 days to form a habit, for the self help center they say it takes 21, but there is no scientific evidence proving that. Now when it comes to forming a strong habit it takes discipline and focus. But the discipline is only temporary, you need just enough time to build the habit. Because when habits are formed, it later becomes a lifestyle that you are accustomed to. Now what can pro-long this from happening? It is the words you tell yourself and others , ” Just One More ” , it really just never is one more is it, because one more every single day adds up to 365 times a year, that one more can add up to many.
Now what are you willing to do to stop this ” One More ” non-sense? That is really up to you and what habits you are willing to form to get this poison out of you. It has to start with ” No More”. No is a word we do not like to say too often because, you may think to yourself, you might be hurting the other persons feelings, or you do not want the fear of missing out. The truth is you are not missing out on anything at all, and by saying no others and bad habits you are saying yes to yourself and taking the right step into a better lifestyle that you need.
I always thought I would be missing out on the parties I was invited to, the cool things that was going to partake and the friends I wanted to see. But in all honesty I was not missing out on much, only the fact that I could be doing something more productive with my time. I love to read, but I always tell myself that I do not have time for it, but I do have time to go gamble or swipe on my Instagram feed for two hours until I get tired, and have no energy. It’s time to feed your brain some real food that consists of: Reading, Working out, Listening, and taking a time to reflect with some mindful breathing.
Now I am saying today ” No More ” to the bad habits that include, swiping on Instagram for more than an hour/day, gambling on the internet/casinos and saying yes to my life and the new habits that I must create in order to be successful.
YOU the STRONGEST
