Monday Morning Challenge
The April 2015 A-to-Z Challenge is over! It’s time to get back to our regular posting schedule. Today’s challenge is about habits. How do you motivate yourself to change your habits. Sure some are easier than others. One’s where your life hangs in the balance are usually motivation enough to stop smoking, lose weight, stop eating sweets, etc. But what about habits you want to change that might never show any visible result, like improving your character? Let’s pick just one aspect or trait of good character like honestly. How do we go about the challenge of improving our honesty and sticking to it? What would be a good motivator for you to begin and continue working until you improved? Maybe it depends on what you have to do or how you go about it? Let’s say you are in the habit of telling little white lies to spare friends or family disappointment or embarrassment. Some would argue that this is okay since it doesn’t hurt anyone. This is a slippery slope. You are in the habit of lying. You have options. You can tell the truth. You can not answer the question or you might try talking to the person and explaining that you simply don’t want to lie to them. A lot of us, myself included, tend to take the easy path of telling the lie. How do we motivate ourselves to not do this? Your challenge today is to leave a comment below about how you motivate yourself or others to change a habit.
