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.

MORE IDEAS FROM Atomic Habits

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

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.

  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.

It is necessary to make good habit as a system. On repeating these habits for a period of time, it will make your life great and its ultimate result will be success.
