If we have decided we want to change and we agree that our #habits are what make us who we are then we are ready to take action.
We agree that nothing changes if nothing changes or in others words in order for our life to become different, WE have to become different; take different actions. We are accountable to our future self and the results in our current life is a result of our current habits.

Developing the habits required to successfully achieve #goals takes rendering down the endpoint to the smallest possible action that is required to begin …and doing it. The author Leo Babauta reminds us that “Actually, doing the habit is much more important than how much you do.”
It’s not about quantity of each event its about about repetition. Small actions create massive results when done consistently because of the concept of momentum. #Momentum builds with every action we take no matter how small it is as long as it is constant an in the same direction.
If we can boil down the starting point to an actions item so small, we almost feel ridiculous not taking it we remove all obstacles and options for procrastination.
Developing new habits requires forming new #neurological loops in our brains. This means Identifying our CUES- whatever would cause us to take the negative habit.

Celebrating the victory and rewarding the new behavior is crucial. Each time we celebrate it activates the #dopamine sensor in the brain to anchor and reinforce those new actions with that cue which creates a desire for the new routine which brings that reward thus forming the HABIT.
