How To Break Bad Habits
When I grew up we didn’t have a lot of money.
My father had a successful business but one day his partner backstabbed him and left him millions in debt.
This killed my father financially and I remember getting home from school one day and seeing the look of hopelessness on my mom’s face after she heard the bad news.
He could no longer send us money.
We were so broke we had to buy food from the near-expired section of the supermarket.
This greatly affected me in later life…
If I hadn’t become aware of it, it wouldn’t matter how much money I made, I’d still be broke.
I recommend watching the video above to discover what this habit is in case you have it because left unchecked it will keep you broke.
So, how do you break bad habits holding you back from the success you desire?
Why You’ll Never Out-Perform Your Internal Self-image
Your self-image is the way you see yourself.
You could see yourself as confident, a go-getter, productive, smart with your money, etc…
Or you could see yourself as someone who doesn’t go after what they want, watches a lot of TV, and drinks too much alcohol, etc.
Your habits come from your self-image, which is why you’ll never outperform your internal self-image.
This is a profound concept made famous by Maxwell Maltz, who wrote the book Psycho-cybernetics.
A few years ago I did a TEDx talk on self-image, and why it’s so powerful.
Why Habits Aren’t Always Actions
Habits can take the form of words you speak to yourself.
I’m willing to bet, that every day you have a certain number of words you use pretty much all the time.
This includes the words you say to yourself.
If you’re constantly speaking negative words to yourself without knowing it, this sabotages your success.
Take a few minutes to watch that video, so you can catch yourself before you use any of these words ever again.
