To live a successful lifestyle, you have to always form new habit regularly and then adapted to it.

When you challenge yourself, you are developing yourself. That is why I will highly advise you to always form new habits that will help you grow consciously.

I’m a kind of person who likes adventure so much. I just love to always experience new things always, that is why I do challenge myself every day.

I do make sure that I push myself closer, to whatever scared me every day of my life. I love going into my fear. I don’t like regretting, that is why I always make sure that I try to do anything that I’m afraid of doing.

Fear of fear is my motivation.

During my research online, I came across – 8 Easy Steps and tips to Form a New Habit and you can learn more at developgoodhabits.com/dym.

The trick is to chip away at your goal in small, incremental steps.

In other words, when you know how to form a new habit (related to your goal), then you can turn success into a series of daily actions.

 

1. Focus on one new habit

It’s important to work on only one habit at a time. That way, your store of willpower can be channeled into completing that one habit, increasing the odds of success.

 

2. Commit for a minimum of 3 days

The length of time really varies from person to person and habit to habit. You’ll find that some habits are easy to build while others require more effort.

 

3. Anchor your new habit to an established habit

‘After I get to my car from work, I will change into my workout clothes and walk for 1 minutes.’

 

4. Take baby steps

Create a micro-commitment where it’s impossibles to fail. It’s more important to stay consistent and not miss a day than it is to hit a specific milestone. When you have a low level of commitment, you’ll be more likely to get started.

 

5. Make a plan for obstacles

Prepare and anticipate that obstacles will come. Then, you won’t be blindsided by them. Use ‘if-Then Planning’ to take preventative action.

 

6. Create accountability for your habit

Track your efforts and make public declarations about your new habit. You’re more likely to follow through with a commitment when you’re being observed by others.

7. Reward important milestones

Focus on building a reward system into the process so you can take time to celebrate the successful completion of your goals.

The reward you pick is up to you, but it’s important to celebrate those big moments along the way.

 

8. Build a new identity

It’s better to decide that the habit is simply part of your identity and then use each ‘small win’ as a way to demonstrate that it’s who you are on the inside.

Therefore, I want to leave you with this picture quote below. So, think and act on it Today.
