Good Habits – Good Life

Forming good habits is something everyone always talks about. How if you just stick to something long enough it’ll become second nature to you and help you truly get where you want to go. People speak of the framework of what a good habit is and how you can achieve it but they never really get into the nuts and bolts about how good habits are truly formed. People know that they should do good things. They should go to bed earlier, stop drinking so much (or stop drinking altogether) stop smoking, work on projects in their off time, all sorts of different supposedly good things people should do that they never truly get around to doing for one reason or another. The good habit sounds like a great idea in theory but in practice, it never gets around to being implemented. What is it that holds people back from changing habits that are destructive and improving their lives with good habits that will help them prosper in life?

Do the Right Thing

People know on some level that they should do the right thing. They should go out and take a walk or jog around the block a few times. They should take up an art class or get more involved in their local community, but finding time for these things is hard and passivity is so easy to fall back into. What is it that allows a person to quit smoking after years of being a smoker? What gets a couch potato off the sofa and onto the treadmill? How do you keep these habits going strong and not reverting back to the way you were before? It’s one thing to do something for a short period of time, but to be able to truly commit to a healthy lifestyle choice, to truly enjoy personal transformation, takes lots of work and more than that it takes understanding exactly how these sorts of habits are formed in the first place.

Habit Forming

The biggest problem people have is that they don’t truly understand how a habit forms and what it is that makes a person commit to an activity. Forming good habits is not some fluke event that you just happen to luck into. It’s an event that is brought forward by some level of determination, will power, and desire to change yourself for the better. It’s done by understanding exactly what it is that kept you doing the things you were doing previously and working to correct those behaviors. It’s learning about how the mind works and understanding that even with the best of intentions if you don’t have a solid foundation to change what you’re doing you’re going to end up failing in the long run.

External forces can help you along, a doctor can warn you about your lifestyle not being a healthy one and that you have to make changes or else face health problems that could be debilitating or even worse. A loved one can put their foot down and demand you make changes in your life to better yourself or they’ll cut you out of their lives. While these sorts of pressures can cause change its internal motivation that is the most powerful source of change a person can have. Doing things to improve your life because you want to do them is the most likely path to success possible.


Learning exactly why you’re stuck in your bad habits and how to get out of that rut and build good habits is what TOPUCU is all about. When it comes to your bad habits and poor lifestyle choices the truth is The Only Person You Cheat Is You. You might feel like you’re letting other people down by not doing the best you can, but the truth is the person being hurt most by it is you yourself. You owe it to yourself to follow the TOPUCU process of learning how to create and sustain good habits and move in a positive direction. This is learning about how your mind works and what makes it so that a good habit can be kept and bad habits can be removed from your life.

Step one begins you on the journey of understanding what habits are and how they form. You’ll be taught about triggers that cause responses that become your routines and how your brain rewards you for following the routine. Learning this process is the beginning of understanding how to take control of situations and begin improving your life. Once you have completed step one you’ll have a solid foundation to build upon. Step 2 will go further into the motivational factors I talked about before and help you better understand how both external and internal motivations can help you meet your goals. Self-motivation is the key to achieving everything you’ve been seeking when it comes to better life habits and a better lifestyle.

Step 3 talks about the pain that comes both from having to break your bad habits and the toughness of dealing with a new lifestyle and sticking to your good habits. It also focuses on the truth that the pain you suffer from not breaking your bad habits might not seem like a big deal but in reality, it’s so much worse for you then the minor pain you have from changing your life for the better. The only person you cheat is you is not just a slogan, it’s the truth about what bad habits and a shoddy lifestyle do to a person.

Seven E’s

The Seven E’s are step 4 on the path and will better help you understand the thoughts that enter your mind and how they impact what you do in your life. Habits are a completely mental issue and being in control of your thoughts and your mind will allow you to make the right decisions. Instead of falling back on old bad habits you’ll find the mental clarity and toughness to push through and stick to your good habits. Every step of the path will better show you exactly what it is your dealing with when struggling with bad habits.

Understanding the importance of visualization and being able to do it properly is step 5 in the journey. It’s the best way to focus your mind and understand exactly what you’re seeking to achieve. Be it losing weight, quitting drinking, saving more money, or anything else, being able to see it as reality makes it so much easier for you to make it a reality. You can achieve whatever you set your mind to and learning these skills will make it so much easier.

The final two steps will allow you to understand truly how precious your time is and make it so that you can make the most of your time at all times. Once you understand how to budget your time and handle your tasks without procrastination things will become so much easier for you. The final step will be to burn the bridge between your old life and your new life. Living your new better life with the good habits you’ve trained yourself to have will be so rewarding you’ll wish you had started it sooner. If you truly want a better life TOPUCU will help you achieve it.

What is Self-Management?

Self Management

What is Self-Management? We all like to think we’re capable of handling the tasks put in front of us. We all want to think we can save some money, eat better, hit the gym, and get our work done without waiting till the last moment. We like to think we can set aside time to do things we want to do and handle the projects that have been put in front of us. It’s offensive when a boss, parent or spouse is there micromanaging our every move and nitpicking all our decisions. Self-management seems like an easy enough concept to understand, but in truth, it’s not the most straightforward question to answer, what is self-management? How does one become good at it and what are the skills required to understand how self-management works truly.

Self-management is the ability to do what you say you’ll do. It’s the power to control your life and to hold yourself accountable to a standard you’ve set. It’s not making excuses for why you didn’t ask for overtime when you want extra money for a trip. It’s abstaining from partying when you know you have poor behavior when you’re drunk. It’s having self-awareness and the will to stand with your judgment. It’s that moment when you’re by yourself and accountable to nobody else, and you have the option of doing the right thing or the easy thing, and you choose the right thing. How to get yourself into that mindset and to have that willpower is the challenge. You have to be strong enough and disciplined enough to do these things.

Understanding Self-Management

Self Management
What is Self-Management?

It’s going to bed when you’re tired. It’s not hitting Burger King when you’re stressed out. It’s not going back to smoking after you’ve quit for a week because it’s only one cigarette and that doesn’t count as smoking. Having the ability to set out a plan and then achieve it is the pinnacle of self-management, and it’s something so very few people can honestly do. Bad habits exist for a reason. Being in a rut is something that’s so very hard to escape from because you’re pre-conditioned to keep repeating those same behaviors over and over again. Your brain recognizes bad habits, and on some level, it enjoys them even if you know they are bad. You go back to what you know even when you know you shouldn’t do it because you promise yourself it’s the last time you’ll ever do it. You’ll make a clean break tomorrow. Tomorrow’s always the best day to make changes in your life. That’s not the best answer to “What is Self-Management?”

Because it always feels like there will be a tomorrow. You’ll still have a chance to make the right decision some other day. Today’s too hard. The kids aren’t listening to you, the spouse was sick and couldn’t help around the house, and you’ve earned a drink or two to blow off a little steam after you get the kids to bed. When you finally get a good night’s sleep and have a clear head and an easy day is the day you’ll stop drinking. It all sounds so easy. That’s why the drinks keep flowing. The perfect day that allows you to make the right choice never comes, so you make the natural choice. You hate yourself for doing it, but you feel powerless to change and fix the problem. You’ve looked everywhere for help and advice on the issue, but nothing seems to help. You feel like you’re trapped, and you’ll never get free of your bad habits that are ruining the quality of your life.

Getting Started

Personal Transformation and understanding how to break these cycles of bad habits and to finally change your life permanently in a positive way can is possible. TOPUCU stands for The Only Person You Cheat is You, and it is a mantra you should take to heart. You are cheating yourself out of a better life by going back to your old habits. You could have so many good things happening for yourself if you committed to them. Of course, learning how to commit to those good things truly is the challenge and TOPUCU is here to finally show you the path to the better life you can have.

You’ll understand the concepts of the trigger, the routine, and the reward. You’ll come to grips with how your bad habits are a reaction to events in your life and how to build better, more positive responses and maintain them.

Moving Forward

Then you’ll learn about how important internal motivation is, and while it’s nice to get external motivation from friends, family and support groups, it’s still you that has to find the will to motivate yourself to be able to achieve lasting improvement. You’re looking for a better life and a better future, and you can achieve that if you’re finding the right ways to inspire yourself to push forward and meet the challenges you’ve put in front of yourself.
As you move through the rest of the lessons, you’ll learn all sorts of valuable knowledge. About how the pain of staying where you are is permanent and while it’s subtle, it never goes away. The pain of changing habits from bad to good can be challenging to deal with but it is transitory, and once you’ve managed to make your way through that period, the reward on the other side of it is very much worth it. You’ll learn about how to manage your time effectively and make yourself accountable for your tasks. No longer will procrastination sneak into your life and make things harder than they should be. You’ll be the one ahead of the game and have free time to spend with others because you were focused and determined to handle your tasks without wasting time.

You can do better. You can be an expert at self-management. It might seem impossible but it’s not, success can be achieved, and TOPUCU is here to help you make it happen.

Challenge yourself to excellence and follow the TOPUCU path and you’ll be able to obtain it.

Personal Goals and New Year’s Resolutions

Personal Goals

Personal Goals

We all have something we would like to do in the upcoming year. Personal Goals to Achieve.  Be it fixing some bad habit in our lives or seeking to obtain a new goal. The thing about New Year’s Resolutions is that you know you should follow through on them and stick to the plan to improve your life but finding the will, the drive, and the determination is so hard. Things start well for a week or two but then the bad habits start creeping back in. Why is it those bad habits are so hard to overcome? What makes it so hard to finally break free from those habits that hold you back?

Understanding why a bad habit is so hard to shake is the fundamental way to change your life for the better. From losing weight, ending procrastination, quitting smoking or drinking, working on the things that truly engage you instead of just sitting in front of the TV. Finding the key to unlocking how to do all these things is the key to a better life.

Seems So Simple

Personal Goals

It all seems so simple – personal goals shouldn’t be so hard. Stop eating fast food and candy bars, go for some walks and join a gym and you’ll lose weight. Stop spending money on more clothes and gadgets than you need and put that money in the bank and you’ll save. Set aside an hour or two every night for writing and you’ll finally make headway on your screenplay. Whatever it is you’re looking to do you have the basic outline of how you’ll get it done. Yet by February, your weight is the same, your bank account is still low and your screenplay isn’t written. You’ve fallen short of changing habits.

Knowing the supposed solutions to your problems isn’t enough. It’s one thing to know what the right thing to do is, it is quite another thing to make yourself do it and then to stick to that plan and make it something that you don’t waver from. Figuring out exactly you can muster up the ability to consistently avoid bad habits while building good habits is what you need to do. That is how your New Year’s Resolution becomes the lifestyle you want to live and you finally will see the positive changes in your life manifest themselves. How to do this is the tough part.

Achieve Your Personal Goals

There are so many different guides out there that try to explain to you exactly how you should go about fixing your life and improving yourself. The self-help section of a bookstore can be overwhelming with all the different authors telling you whatever it is they think works.  SearchPersonal Transformation” – the internet is just as filled with all sorts of people telling you all kinds of different thoughts of what a person must do to improve their life. How do you know which people are just telling you what you want to hear? How do you know who to trust when it comes to learning this all important information?

The TOPUCU system has been proven to help people improve their mindset and to form good habits while breaking bad ones. Independent reviews of the people who have taken the TOPUCU courses has shown marked improvements in self-confidence and a decrease in destructive thinking. The vast majority of people who have taken the course also found it easy to understand and felt they understood the principles of how it works and how they could apply the teaching to their lives to help themselves moving forward.

Learning and completing the TOPUCU seven-step program will give you a greater understanding of what exactly causes you to stay in the rut you are living in and will show you how you can train your mind to resist bad habits and how to both start and maintain good habits. Following these steps is the beginning of your path towards the life you’ve been wanting but never felt like you could have. If you are a parent worried about your child’s habits know that the TOPUCU program has shown to improve grades, social skills and builds leadership qualities in young people that take root and allow them to excel in school and have confidence as they enter the workforce.

Seven-Steps Toward Personal Goals

The seven-step program begins with first understanding how a habit forms and the process your brain goes through dealing with it. From the trigger that starts you on the path to the routine, you perform once you’ve been triggered and the reward you give yourself for having done what you’re used to doing you’ll understand the way it all works and finally be able to see the pattern that is controlling your behavior. The key to this step is understanding the routine you follow after you have been triggered. Does being hungry make you overeat? Does being tired make you skip going to the gym? Does stress lead you to drink? You need to understand the triggering event and then react to it with a more positive routine. We can never truly avoid things like hunger, tiredness, and stress in our lives, but we can control how we react to these things.

Steps to Success

From this step, we go towards motivation and what drives a person to do things. We look at external and internal motivation and seek to help you understand exactly it’s so important to be internally motivated. It’s nice to have people praise you for a good habit, but to really want to commit to that good habit is what will make it stick. The third step will talk about the pain of breaking old habits and how the short-term pain of this change is nothing compared to the long-term pain of not escaping your bad habits.

In step four we’ll explain the seven E’s to you and guide you from “Entrance” to “Enveloped” to show you how change can be achieved and how to train your mind to accept better habits. Next, we’ll teach you about visualization and how it is so important to be able to see yourself obtaining your goal to make it that much more likely you’ll be able to achieve it. The sixth step will teach you about the vital skills of time management and how to focus yourself to achieve your goals for the day without procrastination or distraction. Once these six steps have been achieved you can finally burn the bridge between your old life and the new life you’re on your way to leading.

This can be the year you finally hold onto your New Year’s Resolutions and make that lasting positive change that improves your life. Let TOPUCU help you become all you can be.

Re-inventing Yourself

To lose weight, to break free from an addiction, to learn a skill or trade, to start making more money.
