In my experience I realized that the key to changing those useless habits for something better is repetition. Repeating mentally what you want to keep. Ignoring what you don’t want. Constancy, perseverance and patience help you change.
Ignore the habit you want to get rid of. At the same time mentally and verbally repeat the new habit that you want to plant, practice it constantly and over time there is a displacement that allows the unwanted habit to go away, and its place is gradually replaced by the new habit. It’s a natural process.
This process can be done without effort, without fighting and without complaining to avoid resistance.
An example of this is getting rid of beliefs that limit your growth and development. Open your mind to accept that there is much to learn and that we have many implanted thought patterns in our subconscious that we do not even know are there. Be humble to accept, and open to explore and integrate consciously and voluntarily everything you can change to enhance your life.
The habit of creating negative and destructive thoughts can be replaced with positive and creative phrases that you constantly repeat until you believe it yourself and come to form your new thoughts. Your mind cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined. By repeating what you do want, you can trick your mind into believing it until it becomes real.
There are many habits that we have developed throughout our lives and which have become normalized for us. We don’t realize that they hurt us and our fellow human beings, sometimes affecting our health or our relationships. An example of this is criticizing, judging, consuming liquor and smoking, among others, which are carried out unconsciously inside our homes.
Be humble and open minded so you discover all those habits that are not serving you, be aware and take responsibility to change them for your own good if you wish. This will create well-being for you and for those around you.
