New Year’s resolutions really never seem to work do they? Why is that? It’s simple really. We are using the same old mind that created the bad habit to try and break it. That’s insane! When we want to leave behind old habits and create new ones, we can’t use the habit creator to try and rid ourselves of that habit. What can we do? First it helps to be honest with ourselves by admitting the old ways didn’t work; this makes room for newness to enter. So let’s start there. Today take an honest look at yourself without condemning or judging. Just take stock and don’t beat yourself up. Report the truth about yourself as best you can. Go ahead and make a list of your habits that you want to break and tomorrow we’ll look into how we can rid ourselves of the old unwanted habits forever.
