Day 22 –
The “100 Days to a Better You” plan is designed to be a life-changing experience with long-term implications. It’s designed to change you from the inside out, strengthening the good while reducing and inevitably eliminating the negative or less desirable habits in your life.
The only way to permanently change your old way of doing things is to spend more time building the new. Change is not easy; permanent change is even harder. You must be willing and make a conscious effort to be in this for the long haul; that is the only time that true lasting change occurs.
The key ingredient to change is desire. You really have to want it more than anything. At this point in the plan, so many have given up and reverted back to their old ways. It’s easier to be comfortable but it’s more rewarding to facilitate necessary change. Do you want “easy” or “rewarding”?
Socrates says about change, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” How much time are you spending building the new? How much time are you spending fighting the old? Your focus should be on Day 100, not on anything that happened before today.
Change is good, especially when its for the better.
To The Top!
