As human beings, we’ve been told, we are creatures of habit. If we do something one way on Monday, odds are we’ll do that same thing the same way on Tuesday.
But that doesn’t mean that habits are destiny. Habits can be ignored, changed, or replaced. It’s important to understand that you can’t eliminate a habit – you can, however, change it for a better alternative. And the single most effective step is identifying the cue that triggers the behaviour.
Over a lifetime, we’ve every one of us has generated and formed habits. It's rather astonishing, the amount of what we do each day is unconscious and habitual rather than conscious, voluntary or deliberate.
The secret, however, is to identify the cues driving particularly behaviours, and then adhere to what is known as the Golden Rule of Habit Change: only change one part of the loop at a time. To change a routine, for instance, keep the old cue and find a routine that delivers an old reward. Don’t try to change everything at once. Once we figured out the cue, it is fairly simple to shift the routine.

So, what are your habits? Do you have any that need changing?

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.
