How To Build Any Successful Habit in Just 30 Days!

It’s no secret every successful person has developed insanely productive habits into their daily routine. They understand that success in every area of your life largely depends upon the actions you take and being consistent with those actions every single day.

A powerful personal growth tool for implementing positive habits is the 30-day kickstart, where you consciously implement a habit everyday, for thirty days – which is typically enough time to push this new habit into your subconscious mind and hopefully put it on autopilot.

This is a concept that has been around for years and almost every personal development leader will base their habit strategy on his method. However, I want to introduce you to a new way of adopting this technique to guarantee your success.

This new technique is based on the idea you can download a trial version and try it out risk-free for 30 days before you’re required to pay for it. Developing this mindset around starting a new habit is highly effective and best of all, it’s dead simple.

 

John C Maxwell Picture Quote Daily Routine
 

Imagine you want to start a new habit such as a workout routine, clean eating or mediating regularly. You and I both know that the first few days are easy, even fun while we ride the wave of good intentions, however sticking with our new habit for more than a couple weeks becomes a lot harder.

The reason for this is we psyche ourselves out by thinking of all the time, energy and effort we will need to invest into making our new habit permanent – before we have even started. It becomes overwhelming and the pain of doing it starts to outweigh the pleasure of the results we will experience from having developed our new habit.

But what if we switched our thinking from permanent to temporary? Let’s say you try the habit temporarily for 30 days and then you are free to give it the boot and return to life previously. Doesn’t seem so difficult anymore right?

Could you do it? Could you for instance, decide you want to instill a new habit of reading for an hour a day, everyday and after 30 days just stop if you want? 

You will still need some discipline and commitment, however, not as much as making a permanent change. The perceived effort and energy it will take is only temporary and therefore it becomes easier to stick to your new habit.

 

So what if you actually complete your 30 day trial? What happens next?

  • For one, by completing the trial EVERYDAY for the 30 days – whether you like it or not – you’ve done the action enough times to establish it as a new habit in your subconscious.
  • Secondly, as your so comfortable and familiar with the action, your habit will become easier to do everyday than it was when you were just starting out.
  • Thirdly, with 30 successful days behind you – your confidence will be at an all time high and allow you to continue if you so choose.
  • And lastly, you will hopefully see and feel the results from implementing your habit, which gives you the experience on whether this habit is worth continuing or not.

 

Habits Quote Purpose and Character
 

Tips to successfully test out your new habit:

  • Focus on implementing/trying out one habit at a time
  • Prepare for your new habit – research as much information possible about your new habit before you start
  • Create an action plan – set up a system to support you during your habit implementation
    Make your habit a daily occurrence – it’s easier to keep a regular habit going than it is to be consistent with something you only do once or twice a week
  • Focus on the 30 days not on making your habit permanent – count down the days till freedom if you have to
  • After the 30 days – re-evaluate your situation. Maybe the habit doesn’t suit you – that’s okay – no shame in stopping. Maybe you just need to alter it slightly. Or maybe you haven’t made up your mind on whether to continue it or not – try it for another 30 days – make it a 60 day or 90 day trial!

 

What are your thoughts? Have you tried a 30 day trial before – what were your results?
Do you think this new way of thinking could help you?

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

Avatar

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!
