How To Change Yourself

If you want to achieve something, you must change your habit.

And the most effective way to change your habits is to focus not on what you want to achieve, but on who you wish to become.

And once you know who you wish to become, just try to think all the necessary and required elements which can help you be that person and put them all in your daily life.

Take small steps every day for the person you wish to be and literally your identity will change and you will achieve your goal eventually.

Implementation Intention

When you want your habit to be consistent and reliable. It is very effective to use this "implementation intention" technique.

In this technique we basically give a "particular time and place" for performing a "particular habit" to make it more effective and abvious.

If we don't give a particular time and place for performing a habit then we will keep postponing the habits from morning to afternoon, from afternoon to evening, and from evening to night and eventually we will not succeed in performing our desired habit.

Self Control

  1. People with high self-control tend to spend less time in tempting situations. It’s easier to avoid temptation than resist it.
  2. Self-control is a short-term strategy, not a long-term one. You may be able to resist temptation once or twice, but it’s unlikely you can muster the willpower to override your desires every time. Instead of summoning a new dose of willpower whenever you want to do the right thing, your energy would be better spent optimizing your environment. This is the secret to self-control. Make the cues of your good habits obvious and the cues of your bad habits invisible.

Habit Stacking

Habit stacking is a technique in which we pair our new habit with the current habit that already exist.

The habit stacking formula is: After [CURRENT HABIT], I will [NEW HABIT].

Few examples of habit stacking

■ Healthy eating. When I serve myself a meal, I will always put veggies on my plate first.

■ Exercise. When I see a set of stairs, I will take them instead of using the elevator.

■ Forgetfulness. When I leave a public place, I will check the table and chairs to make sure I don’t leave anything behind.

■ Social skills. When I walk into a party, I will introduce myself to someone I don’t know yet

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
