Understand what is holding you back

Take the time to examine why you're avoiding a habit. In most cases, the cause is related to something deeper than laziness or not wanting to do something. Once you understand the true reasons you can find an appropriate remedy.

A reason for not exercising, for example, could be because you don't like crowds or the long commute to the gym.

Have a plan for when you fail

Understand and accept that you are not going to be perfect on your first try. So take the time to think ahead of a plan about ways to get back on track when you slip up.
