The older you get, the harder it is to make changes in your life.
That’s happening because the more you live, the powerful the beliefs you have will become – and not all your beliefs are positive. More than that, the more you live, the more your habits will become part of your subconscious and you’ll do things without even realizing it.
Want to know how hard it is to change a habit?
Try brushing your teeth, 30 days in a row (or even more) the opposite way. If you’re doing it from left to right, change the direction from up to down and vice-versa.
At the start, you’ll feel really uncomfortable and you’ll think you’re doing it wrong, but there’s nothing wrong with brushing your teeth. Also, you’ll have days where you’ll start brushing your teeth the way you used to because you’ll still have the old habit as an automatism. It’s happening because when you’re sleepy, you’re only half-conscious.
The same ideas can be found when you’re trying to change any habit and the bigger the habit, the more obstacles you’ll find while trying to change it.
Whenever you want to make a change in your life, you should be aware of the habits that are part of what you’re trying to change and take them one by one.
The purpose of this book is to give you a starting point and provide you with specific things that you can do to make small but relevant improvements in your life. You’ll find a list of personal skills that can be transferred to your professional life and, as well, a list of habits to help you improve your life.
Inside this book, like in most optimistic books from The Optimist Box, you’ll find the short and simple-to-understand information you’ll need so you can start reviewing your life and set up a direction for your improvements.
