Good Habits in the New Year: With the start of the new year, people are often thinking about New Year’s Resolutions. Looking towards starting the new year off with a renewed sense of purpose and determination to finally achieve some of the goals they have set out for themselves in the past yet never happened to achieve them. This time they’ll stick to their New Year’s Resolutions and finally lose some weight, learn how to speak Spanish, make more money, and other goals you hear people talk about all the time. Yet when March rolls around, they are back eating at McDonald’s, the Spanish lessons go ignored, and they haven’t activated their Uber App in a month. What is it that makes it so hard to follow through on your goals? Why is it that our good intentions are so hard to translate into good actions? Why are changing habits so difficult?
It’s rough being asked about how your diet is going when you know you’ve been eating poorly. It’s hard to deal with people asking you how your creative project is progressing when you know you haven’t spent any time on it. Deep down you wonder why exactly you aren’t working on these things and why is it that you keep falling into the same rut over and over again. You don’t need your spouse to tell you the pint of ice cream you’re eating isn’t on your diet. You know this but you can’t help yourself. You feel like a creature of habit trapped in the bad impulses that keep you from doing the things you want to do. You’re stuck in a cycle of failed attempts, and it gets to the point where you wonder if you should even bother trying again. You know what needs to be done, and yet for some reason, you just can’t do it.
New Year – New Habits
What is it that’s holding you back? Why is it that every time you strive for good habits in the new year that they fail to come to fruition? You’re not dumb. You know that you should be going to the gym, or looking for a better job. But, when the time comes, you find yourself working the same shifts for the same pay and enjoying a night of beer, steaks, and all the sides you get your hands on. You promise you’ll change things soon and that this time you don’t break your New Year’s Resolution, but It’s a promise you never end up keeping. What exactly is it that makes you unable to act upon your desire to improve your life? What’s holding you back from doing the things you know, you should be doing instead of doing the things you know aren’t healthy? Why are habits so hard to break?
The problem is you’ve never been taught about how a habit forms and what it means to truly break a bad habit and how to foster and improve a good habit. You know not to do bad things like overeat, push things off till the last minute, or play video games instead of working on essential projects. Yet, you always seem to be finding excuses to do those things. Your arm hurts, you’re too tired to think, you’ll get to it first thing tomorrow. You find ways to justify sticking with your bad habits even when you know you shouldn’t. What is making you do this? Is there a way to stop doing it? How do you break the cycle and finally get to where you want to be?
TOPUCU Changing Habits
The reason you can’t break bad habits is that you’ve never truly been taught to understand bad habits. How habits form, and then once they are created, how you develop and maintain them even when you don’t want to. We here at TOPUCU will explain how this process happens and show you exactly how you need to change your life to break free of these issues and finally get yourself back on the right path. Our seven-step starter program begins with explaining to you how exactly you become conditioned to repeating bad habits and how to break out of that cycle once and for all.
Step one of the program will explain to you what the trigger for your bad habit is, be it stress from a day at work, or just the fact that it’s the weekend, and you always go out to drink on the weekend. We’ll break down how the trigger generates a routine in your mind that you are then rewarded for completing by your brain. Understanding how these things all connect is the vital first step towards managing your bad habits and changing them in a way that makes it so you don’t go back to them.
The second step of the program is learning about the power of motivation and understanding what truly motivates you. It’s nice to have people praise your weight loss or commend you for getting better at creative writing or learning a new language. Still, the motivation you have that comes from seeking out the praise of others isn’t nearly as powerful as the motivation that comes from within. To truly make a change in your life requires you to be driven and determined to achieve it. Internal motivation is always stronger than external motivation.
The next step in the program is understanding the true meaning of pain. We think of pain being something we deal with after a hard workout or the suffering from withdrawal that comes from giving up smoking or drinking. Still, that pain is fleeting and one part of the healing process that gets you to a better place and a happier life. The real pain is the pain of not living up to your potential or to achieve your goals. The pain of not being able to do what you really want to do is hidden from us at the moment, but it can fill our lives with regret. Understanding this pain and working to avoid it is what we will instruct you about as we guide you towards improving your life.
The Final Steps
The final four steps towards building good habits in the New Year are learning the Seven “E” s. The Seven E’s will show you how you can allow a negative thought to gain “Entrance” into your mind. Through our training, you’ll learn to work through the ways to prevent these thoughts from triggering your bad habits and help you reach the “Enveloped” state of knowledge. Then you’ll be taught visualization skills that will allow you to manifest your goals into reality. People are told about visualization and its use, but they aren’t told exactly how the process works and how to properly use it to be able to achieve the goals they’ve been seeking.
From there, we’ll show you how to properly use time management to get the most out of your days. You only have a finite amount of time each day to handle all the different tasks you want to accomplish. Learn how to budget your time such that you’re not wasting your day away needlessly. Finally, you’ll burn the bridge with your past life and move forward with good habits that will last a lifetime. You can have a better life, and good habits for the new year can be achieved. You can do this, and we’ll be there to help.
