How many times have you heard it takes 21 days to create or break a habit? Probably about as many times as you've tried to make a change to your life, right? Creating a new lifestyle is nothing more than applying a different set of actions day-to-day. In doing so, you are forming a mental link that strengthens each time you repeat the action. The guys in the white coats call this "context-dependent repetition" - dynamic automatic behavior that saves your brain power in a busy world. Research has also found that the common habit forming time is sixty-six days and that it's possible to form a new habit instantly if your belief and desire to change are strong. How cool is that? That means you can set a new habit in the next 3 minutes if you want to bad enough, be average at sixty-six days, or take as long as you want. I say twenty-one is for Blackjack, and you are in are way above average! Crank up your belief and decide to get what you want today!
