21 DAYS TO A NEW HABIT – DAY 19

DAY 19

SUCCESS FAVOURS THE STUBBORN.

Refuse to quit.

Turn your back on the naysayers, and on the rain-on-your-paraders. Success favours the stubborn. The determined. The refuse-to-quitters.

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable sometimes, because building a new habit isn’t all rainbows and kittens and sunshine and ice cream at the park. It will be hard work, but stay determined and you will get there.

Drama will come, but you don’t have to buy into it, or feed it.

Instead of pulling everyone into your drama with you, observe it. Be unimpressed (because drama loves an audience).

For example, if you’re DYING for a cigarette, instead of telling everyone just observe it. “oh isn’t that interesting? I feel like throwing myself out this window I am so fidgety right now because I really want a cigarette. Interesting. I think I’ll go for a walk instead.”Or “wow, I really want to quit this workout even though I’m only half way through. Interesting. I want to shout and swear and get angry and leave. Instead I will take a deep breath and keep going for five more minutes, and see how I feel then.”

Be stubborn..Shout positive slogans inside your head. Keep going. Get out your mantra.

Say it first thing in the morning, last thing at night. When it gets hard, when it’s easy. Say it over and over. Mean it. Believe it. Become it.

See you tomorrow for day 20!
