Daily Habits Lead to Big Outcomes
We’ve all heard the old saying, “A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.”
But why is it so hard to remember when pursuing positive health changes, big goals, and outcomes?
Maybe because marketers brainwash us to believe in quick, miracle fixes for everything – instant weight loss, spot reductions, and more.
Sorry, but ancient sayings persist for a good reason: This one is true!
So, the secret to making big, positive changes isn’t instant gratification.
It’s making small changes to create new daily habits.
The philosophy made a huge best-seller in the book “Atomic Habits,” which suggests we make a molecular change at first, then add to it more and more, and repeat this until a new, positive behavior becomes ingrained in our life.
It’s the age old idea of delayed gratification: If I make this small sacrifice today, I will be really, really happy about it later.
- If I save 10 percent of my paycheck, I’ll have money when it’s time to retire.
- If I reduce my number of junk snacks by, say, one for the first week, then I’ll have cut them all in no time.
- If I lift a small weight to start out and then keep lifting it until I’m stronger, I can add more weight later… and repeat the process until I’m as strong and lean as I like.
- If I get in the water and swim 15 minutes today, it will be easier if I do it again in 2 days, and so on!
So, as 2023 continues, keep in mind this super-wise advice to start small, make progress one step at a time… be consistent… be patient… and you will BE SUCCESSFUL in whatever you pursue.
