Life Hack Number 7-Begin with Strong Intention
I always say that change begins with a strong intention, so why is it last in this series? It is last because without having a strategy and a method of tracking the behavior change, it will be of little use. Let's be honest we all want a magic bullet a pill or a diet or even a hypnosis session to cause some rapid change. We essentially want years of non-productive behaviors to go away and never come back and the marketers who sell you stuff, want you to buy into that billion dollar fairy tale. We look at the sexy bodies and fill up our garages with dust gathering exercise equipment. Did it occur to us, that the sexy fit body took time to get that way, not really because we bought the fantasy.
I used the word strong intention because it will take more than a wish to have you create the desired change. It will take consistent action over time to unfold it. It will also take practice to make the new successful habits and strategies the dominant ones. Think of the previous 6 life hacks as tools and strategies that will keep your intention front and center. Now take these tools and apply them on a daily basis with flexibility and kindness towards yourself. When you do you will find that you are in the process o becoming who you choose to be. This my friends is a journey worth taking!
