Make Habits Stick with the Words You Use

Start where you are and keep going.  You never know where it will lead you.

Have you ever wanted to stick to an exercise routine, stop eating junk food or do something that is beneficial for your overall health and well-being, but you never do?

The reason why it is hard for many of us to make habits stick is because of the words we use.

Our words are powerful and when we do not use words that are coupled with action we end up doing the same ole things and it is business as usual.

If you want to stop doing business as usual and start getting the results you want for yourself, you have to be aware of the words you say and how they impact the outcomes.

I used to say that, “I need to exercise, but I’ll do it tomorrow.” Tomorrow never came and I never exercised when I said I needed to exercise.

I had a post planned for today, but the equipment I needed didn’t arrive, so I decided to share with you changes that you will see on this blog and things that have changed with me.

I started this blog in March 2010 and I didn’t know what I was doing. I made a lot of mistakes, those mistakes taught me lessons.

Back then, I knew I wanted to write, share information and help others. I had no expertise in the topic I chose, but I was determined to learn.

I had no idea that I would evolve into the person I am today. Life is about growth and change. Sometimes we don’t want to accept and embrace growth and change, but amazing things happen when we accept and embrace. We grow and we change and hopefully we learn a few things along the way.
