Focus on the positives of developing a habit


  1. Write down the habit you want to create in your notebook.
    Take the time to clearly define the habit you want to form and write it down in your notebook using all caps.
  2. Create a mantra for the habit.
    Come up with a phrase or sentence that reflects what you want to experience and who you want to become. This mantra will help you focus on your desired outcome and motivate you to stay on track.
  3. Visualize yourself embodying the habit.
    Imagine yourself practicing the habit and how it would positively affect your life and those around you. This visualization exercise will help reinforce the habit in your mind and give you a sense of purpose.
  4. Look out for excuses and objections.
    Be mindful of any excuses or objections that arise and write them down. Acknowledging these obstacles can help you develop strategies to overcome them and stay committed to your habit.
  5. Use the zero-second rule to bypass excuses and negotiations.
    The zero-second rule is a technique where you take action on your habit within zero seconds of thinking about it, without allowing any negotiations or distractions to get in the way. This rule will help you establish a sense of urgency and keep you from procrastinating.
  6. Be around like-minded people.
    Find a community of people who share your goals and values. Being around people who are also working towards forming new habits can provide you with additional support and accountability.
