3 Reasons Why You Can’t Change Your Bad Habits

Habits, oh those foul habits.

Habits are acquired from training, influences, observance, and practice.

We acquire a lot of habits throughout our life, which some are good and others are not so good.

Good habits we definitely want to keep, but if one wants to better their life the bad habits have to take a hike.

Eliminating bad habits however isn't simple, especially if a dependency is involved.

For this reason, we must identify the root reasons why it’s been hard for you to change bad habits allowing yourself the time and patience to change them.

The Reason #1: Alibis and Excuses

Individuals wander through life making excuses. Anytime an individual sees something complicated, they'll frequently make excuses why they can't deal with the issue. This is a rough-cut problem in the world, which we’ve all heard 1000000000000s of times.

The first key to success is quit making excuses.

You are able to commit by choosing a fresh habit.

Say this affirmation when you feel you can’t change: If you're out to better your life, you need to state,

“This is something that blocks me from accomplishment and I have the ability to change.”

The Reason #2: You vs. Them and Judgement

This is a common error individuals make in the world. They spend time labeling other people and themselves sizing themselves up to other people as a source for reasons to not change.

For example, you know that your eating habits are quite unhealthy. Instead of holding yourself accountable to the change you may say to yourself:

“Well, at least I am not overweight like such and such. This is the western diet, there is nothing wrong with it. I could be like people in other countries who have nothing to eat. Its not that big of a deal.”

If you find yourself negotiating this type of self talk with yourself, it will get you nowhere and you will find that your worst enemy to change is you.

The Reason #3: Negative Thinking

“I can’t alter this. My life is full of bunk; I can’t swing it any longer. Why me?”

If you spend your life believing negative and stating negative connotations, attempt changing your ways today.

For example, state,

“I may change something and I'm going to.“

Rather than stating life is full of bunk, accept it as truth yet move forward to make your life better.

Start Today, Start Small,You Can Do It!

Once you begin to make changes to improve your life, begin small. Rather than jumping the gun, take little steps to success. Too many times individuals try to change overnight. This only leads to frustration.

When you're working to alter your life and habits make certain you seek support and feedback.

You don't have to walk the road to success alone. Feedback is discovered at your library, the Net, at colleges, etc.

Ask somebody you trust to support you and provide you feedback when required as well.

When you change your life for the better, you embrace possibilities, go for it!
