You have to become the type of person you want to be, and that starts with proving your new identity to yourself.
Building these habits means focusing on the type of person you wish to become rather than the outcome you wish to achieve.
Your current behaviors are simply a reflection of your current identity. To change your behavior for good, you need to start believing new things about yourself.
The beliefs you have about yourself can drive your long-term behavior.
You could trick yourself into going to the gym or eating healthy once or twice, but if you don't shift your underlying identity, then it's hard to stick with long-term changes.
Devote at least 15 minutes a day to your change.
Even if it’s just a walk around your neighborhood, one less cigarette, reading an inspirational article, do it. Mix it up, too. No one wants to be stuck doing some tedious workout regime.
...it's clear that those fixed mindsets will cause you to avoid experiences where you might feel like a failure. As a result, you don't learn as much and it's hard to get better.
