Life Transition: Making a New Habit

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Making a New Habit
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” ~ Jim Rohn
Change your habits and anything is possible. To change a habit that is holding you back, make a conscious decision to create a new habit. Then practice the new desired behavior repeatedly over long enough a period that it becomes an empowering new habit. Then move on to the next idea. And that's personal development.
“New habits make new horizons. Silently and imperceptibly you are forming habits that will ultimately determine the degree of your happiness and success. Closely guard the quality of your thoughts, that they may lead to right habits and thence to right living.” ~ Grenville Kleiser
So it's a matter of mindfulness, keeping a part of you aware, so you can act consciously and not on automatic pilot. Changing yourself from the inside out. For example, like Brian Tracy says, "Confidence is a habit that can be developed by acting as if you already had the confidence you desire to have." A conscious change of attitude, an experiment that if it works out, you can make a new habitual way of being, part of you.
“Make it your moment-to-moment aim to recognize the difference between being aware of your thoughts, and being carried along by them.” ~ Guy Finley
Mindfulness isn't about being self-conscious. Instead, you practice implementing a principle into your life, such as being aware when behavior becomes reactive. Like a deliberately programmed habit that then becomes unconscious. So then alarm bells ring when you're being carried along - feeling, thinking and acting reactively - and immediately you get back to being yourself. But that self is then in the moment, in the flow, enjoying life and not self-conscious.
“Using awareness, personal responsibility and inner work to review our unskillful or frightened reactions, we become more adept at turning habitual reactions to balanced responses. These moments are very exciting and gratifying.” ~ John Earle
When we choose to stop instinctively reacting to uncomfortable situations, we realize that we have control over our connection with the world; we are not victims of circumstance.
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind!” ~ William James
Attitude is everything and a change of mind away. But that jump for many is a wide chasm. It takes courage to drop the safe solutions of the past and try new ways, to break conformity and the expectations of others - and it takes persistence to gradually install new habits and ways of being. Abraham Hicks said, "Those old habits don't have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want."

How to Give Birth to New Habits ~ by Dr. Linda Sapadin

You don’t need to wish for a seminal moment (like a visit from your fairy godmother) to turn your life around. Nor do you need to wait for a life-changing disaster when you will have no choice but to turn your life around. What you do need (whether you’re female or male), is to give birth to a new habit. Once you've ingrained that habit as a daily discipline, it will perpetuate itself by creating even more new habits. Continues...
