Are you sick of that old habit? It's time for a CHANGE!

Changing old habits and creating new ones can be a challenging but rewarding process. The key to success is to understand the habit loop and use it to your advantage. The habit loop consists of a cue, a routine, and a reward. The cue is the trigger that initiates the habit, the routine is the behavior or action that follows, and the reward is the positive outcome that reinforces the habit. To change an old habit, you need to identify the cue, find a new routine that satisfies the same reward, and repeat it until it becomes a new habit.

One effective way to change old habits and create new ones is to start small. Instead of trying to change everything at once, focus on one habit and work on it consistently. It's easier to make small changes that are sustainable over time than to try to make big changes that may be too overwhelming. For example, if you want to start exercising regularly, start with a 10-minute walk every day and gradually increase the duration and intensity of your workouts.

Another helpful strategy for changing old habits and creating new ones is to enlist support from others. Surround yourself with people who have similar goals and habits, and who will encourage and motivate you. You can also find an accountability partner who will hold you accountable for your actions and provide feedback and support when needed. Having a support system can make the habit change process more enjoyable and rewarding, and increase your chances of success.

Identifying triggers that initiate behavior we want to change is an essential step towards changing those behaviors. Triggers are the cues or signals that initiate the behavior we want to change, and they can be internal or external. Internal triggers are thoughts, feelings, or physical sensations that lead to the behavior, while external triggers are environmental cues that prompt the behavior. To identify triggers, it's important to pay close attention to our thoughts, feelings, and actions in different situations.

One effective way to identify triggers is to keep a journal or record of the behavior you want to change. Write down the date, time, and location of the behavior, as well as any thoughts, feelings, or physical sensations that occurred before and after the behavior. This will help you identify patterns and triggers that are associated with the behavior. For example, if you notice that you always eat junk food when you're feeling stressed, the trigger for your behavior may be stress.
Another helpful strategy for identifying triggers is to ask yourself questions that help you explore the reasons behind the behavior. For example, you can ask yourself, "What am I feeling right now?" "What thoughts are going through my mind?" "What events or situations led to this behavior?" By asking these questions, you can gain insight into the triggers that are leading to the behavior you want to change.

Finally, it can be helpful to seek feedback from others. Ask friends or family members to observe your behavior and provide feedback on what they notice. They may be able to identify triggers that you haven't noticed or provide a different perspective on the behavior you want to change.

Ten tips on applying the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance!

Every day brings new choices............ Martha Beck

Today I'm writing a little about the Law of Sufficiency and Abundance. This Law states that you have everything within you right now to make all your dreams and desires a reality. We actually live in a world of abundance though most people have been led to believe it's a world of scarcity.

11 Corinthians, 3:5 states "Our Sufficiency is from God."

There is always enough even when we believe that there isn't. God has no limits. He is limitless so why should we limit God? That is what is called thinking in lack, instead of thinking in limitless abundance and sufficiency. Here are a few tips about helping not to think in lack but rather have thoughts of enough sufficiency.

Here are 5 things that keep us thinking we aren't enough and don't have enough.

  • Comparisons to others - it's easy to feel like we don't measure up when we compare ourselves to those around us.
  • Fear of failure - the fear of not being able to meet our own expectations, or the expectations of those around us, can be a major obstacle to feeling like we are enough.
  • Negative self-talk - telling ourselves that we are not good enough or that we are not worthy can be a major contributing factor to feeling like we don't have enough.
  • Perfectionism - striving for perfection can lead to feelings of inadequacy and an inability to appreciate our own accomplishments.
  • Lack of gratitude - not taking the time to reflect on what we do have and be grateful for it can make us focus on what we don't have.

So, ask yourself when is enough? When you lose that 10lb, or have a million dollars in the bank, or have an ideal relationship. When you chase outside of yourself, you will never feel truly satisfied, or feel "enough."

What is Abundance?

The Law of Abundance is having everything you need when you need it, and as much as you need it, in the specific way you need it. So how can you apply this law? Here are five tips.

5 Tips on applying the law of abundance to your life

  • Believe and visualize abundance: Believe that you are worthy of receiving abundance in all areas of your life. Visualize yourself having abundance in all areas of your life - wealth, health, relationships, and joy.
  • Give thanks: Express gratitude for all the abundance that you have and will receive. Make it a habit to express your gratitude and appreciation for all the wonderful things you have in your life.
  • Live in the present moment: Live in the present moment and enjoy it. Don't dwell on the past or worry about the future. Focus on what is happening in the present and be thankful for all the abundance you have.
  • Be open to receiving: Be open to receiving abundance in all areas of your life. Believe that you can receive abundance, and be willing to accept it when it comes.
  • Take action: Taking action is the key to manifesting your desires. Make a plan and take action steps towards achieving your goals. Believe and trust in the process and take consistent action.

Whatever you are focused on is where your attention will be. You will have an abundance of either plenty or lack according to where your focus is.
