How To Break A Bad Habit The Easy Way


How long does it take to break a bad habit?

For example, lets say you want to stop smoking, quit biting your nails, watch less tv, not drink as much, or not eat junk food. How many days to break a habit on this list?

Lots of people think that it's very hard to stop a bad habit, or that it has to take you a long time to change your habits. For example, there's the common myth that it takes 21 days to change a habit.

But here's the truth: how long it takes to change your habits depends entirely upon what you do.

Right now, you're going to learn how to stop a bad habit faster and easier than most people by learning how to mentally prepare for changing your habits. The result is that you'll be able to break any bad habit faster and easier than most people.

For example, if you want to stop smoking, this information you're about to learn will make it a million times easier for you to achieve this, especially since you'll naturally be free of the mental torture that so many people experience when they try to quit smoking.

Why is it hard to change your habits sometimes?

Contrary to what many people think, it can be extremely easy to change your habits.

For example, let's say your entire life you've driven on the right side of the street, and then one day you visit a country where everyone drives on the left side of the street. If you rented a car, you'd find it extremely easy to start driving on the left side of the street. Just try it and see.

This raises an interesting question: why are some habits so easy to change, while others are so hard to change?

Although there can be many different factors for this, I'm going to narrow it down to the top 5 reasons you might find it hard to stop a bad habit.

5 reasons it can be hard to change your habits

  1. You don't really want to change your habits. For example, you don't 'really' want to stop smoking, but you're 'making yourself' do it for whatever reason. Or perhaps you're quitting smoking 'for someone else' but not yourself. With this approach, you're guaranteed to face an uphill, miserable battle the entire way.
  2. You don't have a clear plan for successfully changing your habits. For example, if you're quitting smoking, you haven't considered not keeping cigarettes on you, which will make it easier for you to stop smoking, since you have to consciously think about getting a cigarette each time. Even worse, you haven't considered how to mentally prepare for changing this habit to make it faster, easier, and more natural.
  3. You are afraid to take action and change your habits. Among other things, you can be afraid of both failure and success, which paralyzes you. For example, you're afraid that if you try to quit smoking, and you fail, you'll have to deal with that failure. And at the same time, you can be afraid that if you succeed, and you quit smoking, your life won't be as enjoyable, other people won't like you as much, and so on. So in many ways, fear prevents you from taking action.
  4. A change in habit feels weird, uncomfortable, or 'wrong' to you. For example, it feels weird to you to not smoke cigarettes when you're drinking, or it feels wrong or rude to turn down a cigarette that's offered to you, and so on. Bottom line, if you're not completely comfortable not smoking, you'll likely revert back to something more comfortable and familiar to you: smoking.
  5. You have made your habit a part of your identity that 'dictates' how you act. As long as you see a habit as being a part of who you are, it will be very challenging to change the habit. For example, if you see yourself as a smoker, you will naturally act accordingly. To change your habit faster, see yourself as someone who can quit smoking and is taking action to do that. Then you will naturally act accordingly in that way, instead.

How to break a bad habit the easy way

What do the 5 factors that make it hard for you to change your habits all have in common?

Answer: they are all mental obstacles that you can easily eliminate with some thought and preparation.

Now, most people don't address these mental obstacles before they start a new habit, which is why most people struggle so much with adopting new habits.

Indeed, most people adhere to Nike's "Just Do It" philosophy, and jump into a new habit with no mental preparation whatsoever! 

Unfortunately, by doing so, they naturally make it extremely difficult to change their habits, because they are facing mental obstacles every step of the way, which makes the change hard and miserable for them.

But guess what? By doing what most people never do, and mentally preparing for a habit change ahead of time, you can make a change in habit easy and enjoyable for you, instead. (Or, at the very least, much easier and far more enjoyable.)

This means that you can approach a notoriously 'hard' habit to break, like quitting smoking, in a constructive, intelligent manner that allows you to quit smoking in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way than most people experience. And the result is that you are far more successful in your habit change.

How to break a bad habit faster with mental preparation

Since mental preparation is the most important and most overlooked factor for changing your habits, right now you're going to learn how to mentally prepare for a change in habit in an extremely smart, powerful, effective way.

I have broken down the mental preparation steps into 4 sections:

  1. Look forward to changing your habit
  2. Have a plan for success with changing your habit
  3. Feel fearless & comfortable taking action to achieve your change in habit
  4. Take action to achieve your change in habit & enjoy your success

1. Look forward to changing your habit

  1. Know why you want to stop or start a habit for yourself: appreciate the benefits & what's in it for you   

The most important step for making it easy to start a new habit is to know why you want to make this change in habit for yourself. This means that even if no one else wanted you to make this habit change, you would still want to do it, due to seeing how it benefits you.

For example, it you want to quit smoking, understand how quitting smoking benefits you so much, and why you'd want to stop smoking even if the rest of the world wanted you to continue smoking.

Although some benefits of a habit change can be fairly obvious, like the health benefits of quitting smoking, be sure to dig deeper and appreciate how a habit change also benefits you mentally and emotionally in a lot of different ways.

For example, if you quit smoking, you are no longer doing something self-destructive that you know hurts your body and health, so you naturally become free of all the guilt, worry, anxiety, and even self-loathing that often accompanies such a self-destructive act.

Indeed, you enjoy greater peace of mind, as well as self-worth, since you're appreciating and respecting your body and health more.

You also naturally have greater self confidence, because instead of fidgeting and feeling like you "need" a cigarette to calm down and relax, you feel calm and relaxed without having to rely on something self-destructive. (If you think about it, smoking undermines your self-confidence by making you think you "need" something else to be calm and relaxed, as if you "can't" be that way on your own. By becoming smoke-free, you prove this isn't true, and your confidence in yourself soars.)

  • The more you analzyse the benefits of a habit change in this way, the more you discover "illusions" of benefits in an old habit (like the illusion that smoking is making you more confident, when you can see how it drains your self-confidence by making you needy and dependent on a crutch), and you appreciate the wonderful benefits of a new habit (like how becoming smoke-free increases your self confidence)
  • The result is that you naturally look forward to the change in habit more, you're more motivated to achieve it, and you naturally have less fear of taking action to achieve it, since you appreciate how great it is in so many ways
  • The overall result of all of this benefit analysis is that it immediately becomes a billion times easier to change your habit, which is why this step is by far the most important step in making a new habit change easier and more enjoyable
  • For this reason, the Confidence & Success Tool contains at least 10 different ways of analyze the benefits of a habit change on a deep level, which will naturally make you excited and fearless about developing your new habit

  1. Be completely clear why you will be happier & better off by adopting this habit change  

If you do a thorough analysis of all the benefits of a habit change in step 1, then you will automatically already find it easy to see why you will be be happier and better of adopting your new habit change, and being happy with this change already makes it easier and more enjoyable.

To understand the power of this, if you ask smokers if they think they'll be happier and better off if they quit smoking, most of them would tell you that even if they were better off physically by not smoking, they think they wouldn't be as happy.

So of course they naturally dread the prospect of 'giving up' smoking, because they think there will be a loss of happiness and that they are making some kind of sacrifice!

But if a smoker does the deep benefit analysis in step 1, it becomes easy for him to see that he definitely can and will be a much happier person overall by eliminating smoking from his life, and becoming a happy non-smoker.

And this change in attitude naturally makes the process of becoming a non-smoker much easier and more enjoyable for him, which means he becomes a non-smoker even faster. 

  • In the Confidence & Success Tool, there is a checklist that helps you see and appreciate that you'd be happier off with your new change in habit
  • Specficially, you are asked whether you see lots of positive value in the new habit change, even if no one else does, and you're asked if the positive value you see is enough to be happy with it or not 
  • By appreciating that you're already happy about this new habit change, even if no one else is, you're already in a much more powerful position, since you'll be able to change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoable way

  1. Know why it's a sensible no-brainer to achieve this change in habit, with or without other people's support, acceptance, or approval  

The idea, here, is to make the new habit change a literal no-brainer for you, which will naturally help you do the new habit automatically, which is exactly what you want in the first place.

After doing the steps above, you come to this "no-brainer" conclusion by appreciating these types of things:

-- Your habit change is a beneficial thing to achieve (for example, not only will you benefit from quitting smoking, but others can/will benefit from this as well, since you're naturally also creating a healthier environment for others around you)

-- This is clearly a valid and acceptable thing to do (for example, appreciate that it's clearly valid and acceptable to quit smoking)

-- There is not anything 'bad' or 'wrong' about creating this habit change (for example, it's helpful to appreciate that there isn't anything 'bad' or 'wrong" about quitting smoking, because you might think for some reason it would be 'bad' for you to quit, until you do a benefit analysis and appreciate that quitting isn't bad in any way)

-- Instead, it's ok and great in each and every way you look at it to achieve your new habit change (for example, it's ok and great and every way to quit smoking)

-- Beneficial + valid and acceptable + doable + something you value and want = completely sensible no-brainer (by going through these mental steps, you now appreciate that it's a completely sensible no-brainer to quit smoking)

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you go through these exact mental steps with your desired habit change 
  • The result is that you naturally find it easier to automatically do your new habit, once you clearly understand why it's a sensible no-brainer in every way 
  • This understanding makes you comfort level with the new habit change go through the roof, so that already, starting your new habit already feels comfortable to you, rather than 'weird' or 'wrong' in any way
  • The result is that you create your habit change faster and easier with far more success

  1. Know that it's possible to achieve this habit change & choose to take action to achieve it  

It's crucial that you're at least open to the possibility that you can change a habit. Otherwise, you won't be motivated to even take action to achieve it, which means the habit change won't occur.

For example, if you want to quit smoking, but you're convinced that it will be impossible for you, it doesn't matter how much you want to quit smoking, because you won't have energy or any motivation to try to achieve something you believe is impossible to achieve.

The lesson: simply be open to the possibility that you can change your habit, and then choose to take action to achieve it.

By this point, if you already understand why a habit change benefits you, why you'll be a happier person and better off with the new habit, and why it's a completely sensible no-brainer to achieve a new habit change, then it will also be easy to take action to achieve it.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you appreciate that you can achieve your habit change
  • It also helps you choose to take action to achieve your new habit change
  • The result is that it "magically" helps you achieve your new habit faster and easier, since it has helped you improve your thinking in a powerful way

2. Have a plan for success

Click on each step to learn more.


  1. Know how to achieve your change in habit: establish at least one way of achieving it  

Once you know why you want to change a habit, it's important that you identify specific, actionable steps that will help you achieve what you want to achieve.

For example, if you're quitting smoking, be more specific than saying "I just won't smoke any cigarettes". Instead, think deeper about what you can do to make this change even easier for you.

In this case, you can take mental steps (like you're learning how to do right now) to make the process of quitting smoking much easier and more enjoyable for you.

You could also do things to improve your environment, like not keeping cigarettes on you, or not bringing cigarettes inside your house, and so on. These are all actionable things that you could do to make the process of quitting smoking even easier for you.

By identifying these kinds of steps, you will naturally find it easier to achieve your change in habit. Also, you will be far more confident in your ability to achieve your habit change, which will also help you change your habit even easier.

And, finally, you will enjoy feeling successful when you complete steps that help you achieve your new habit.

So there is a huge payoff, in a lot of different ways, by identifying these actionable steps for achieving your habit change faster and easier.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you list your actionable steps
  • You are prompted to consider whether taking these steps will help you create the change you want faster and easier
  • The result of this analysis is that you feel more confident, you have a clear plan that you can follow to achieve your goal, and you feel successful whenever you take one of your steps: all of this contributes to a faster, easier, more enjoyable time changing your habit

  1. Know how to determine that you've successfully changed your habit  

Part of the struggle with adopting new habits is that you can waste time questioning whether you've "successfully" adopted a new habit, if you don't know what your criteria for success is.

For example, let's say you want to quit smoking. When have you successfully changed your habit and become a happy non-smoker?

Is it after you've quit smoking for 12 hours? 1 day? 3 days? 1 week? 3 weeks? 1 month? 6 months? 1 year?

It's up to you to decide the criteria for your success. The most important thing is that you have something clear to shoot for; the more specific the better.

For example, you could say that you know you've successfully quit smoking when you haven't smoked for at least a week, you've had very little or no urge to smoke, you've found it easy overall to not smoke, you have no desire or intention to smoke anymore, and you can honestly and comfortably accept yourself as a happy non-smoker.

See how specific that is?

With this kind of specificity, you could accept yourself as successfully becoming a happy non-smoker over the course of a week, which is fantastic.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you identify criteria for success, so you can know when you've achieved what you set out to achieve
  • The overall result is that you have a clear target to aim for now, and you can say whether or not you've hit the target or not
  • This gives you a sense of purpose and direction, which naturally helps you become more successful in changing your habit faster and easier, and it also gives you a sense of satisfaction, completion, and peace of mind once you've hit your target

  1. Visualize the success you want to achieve with your new habit change, including new patterns in your life: if you're stopping something, know what you want to start doing instead  

Let's say you've never been somewhere before. If you create a map in your mind of where you want to get to, and clearly envision all the steps in your mind of how to get there, you will naturally find it easy to get to where you want to go, almost as if by autopilot, simply by knowing exactly what to do at every turn.

You can use this impressive and underrated ability to create a habit change even faster and easier by clearly imagining exactly what you want to do and achieve with your new habit change.

For example, let's say you want to quit smoking. To get more specific, and visualize the kind of success you want to achieve, you could specify something like this: "When I'm drinking alcohol, I want to have no urge to smoke whatsoever, and I want to feel great and happy about being smoke-free, even if others around me are smoking".

Similarly, you could say: "Whenever someone offers me a cigarette, I want to feel great and happy about politely turning down the cigarette, and have it be no big deal at all, whereve I have no urge at all to smoke the cigarette, and I want to feel great and happy about being smoke-free".

The idea is to visualize the kind of success you want to achieve as much as possible, because if and when those types of situations occur, you'll already naturally know how you want to act and be, which naturally helps you act and be that way.

In this way, you naturally reach your "successful destination" so much faster and easier, by specifically envisioning all the kind of success you want achieve and experience with your new habit change, and how you want to act and be from this moment forward.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you envision specific scenarios to make you more successful changing your habits
  • By now exactly how you want to act and be in the future, you naturally find it easier to act and be that way when the time comes
  • In such a way, by "mapping out" the kind of future you want to achieve, you naturally arrive at that destination faster and easier (in other words, you are much more successful achieving the change in habit you want to achieve)
  1. Establish confidence in achieving this new habit change  

The more confident you are that you can change your habits, the more successful you are in changing them.

Here's why: the more confident you are, the more energized and motivated you are to take action to change your habit. This naturally translates into greater success, simply because you're taking confident action to achieve the change you want to achieve.

For this reason, establish some sort of confidence that you can achieve this change in habit, by thinking about how quickly you achieve what you wanted to achieve, if you set your mind to it and took action to achieve it.

For example, let's say you want to stop smoking cigarettes. Are you confident that if you took action you could quit smoking and consider yourself a happy non-smoker in 4 hours? 1 day? 7  days? 2 weeks? 1 month? 3 months? 1 year?

The idea, here, is to not set a deadline that you have to achieve your change in habit by, but just to establish some degree of confidence, where the possibility of achieving what you want to achieve is already made more tangible and real to you.

By doing this, your confidence increases, you are more motivated to achieve your change in habit, and the result is that you have more success changing your habits.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you establish a degree of confidence in changing your habit
  • By establishing this degree of confidence, you naturally are more energized to take action to change your habits
  • The overall result is that you have more success changing your habits

3. Feel fearless & completely comfortable taking action to change your habits

Click on each step to learn more.



  1. Eliminate any fear or anxiety about this habit change  

The more you have no fear or anxiety about changing your habit, the easier and more enjoyable it is to do it.

For example, if you're not afraid to stop smoking, it's naturally easier and more enjoyable for you to quit smoking. After all, you're not being tormented and paralyzed by fear.

The way to quickly eliminate fear and anxiety about changing your habits is to quickly reject negative thoughts that create fear and anxiety, and instead intelligently accept positive thoughts that make you feel more calm and confident.

These changes in thought will be extremely easy to make, provided you have already done the benefit analysis for the habit change, you know what's in it for you, you're happy with the change, and you know how to achieve it.

For example, a common thought that creates fear and anxiety is the thought that you will lose something of positive value or make some kind of sacrifice if you change your habit.

For smokers, this is a very common thought that creates fear and anxiety, when they think about quitting smoking.

But if you've done your thorough benefit analysis, it becomes very easy to reject this negative thought, and to instead accept the valid positive thought that you gain a lot of positive value by quitting smoking, rather than suffering from any so-called "losses".

The result of this change in thought is that you are naturally much more calm, relaxed, and confident about quitting smoking, since you have instantly reduced your fear of quitting.

Apply this same principle to any habit, and see how much easier and more enjoyable it is for you to change your habit.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you reject 3 negative thoughts that create fear and anxiety about changing your habits
  • The tool also helps you accept 3 positive thoughts that make you more calm, relaxed, and confident about changing your habits
  • The result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way, with less/no fear and anxiety

  1. Feel completely comfortable with this habit change  

If a new habit feels weird, wrong, or uncomfortable to you in any way, you will naturally be tempted to revert back to old ways of doing things that feel more comfortable and familiar to you.

For example, if it feels weird, wrong, or uncomfortable for you to not smoke while drinking your coffee, or while hanging out with friends, you will naturally feel tempted to go back to smoking, which feels more familiar and comfortable to you.

The result is that you have less success changing your habit.

Fortunately, you can feel completely comfortable with a new habit from the get-go by replacing negative thoughts that make you uncomfortable with more positive thoughts that make you feel more comfortable about the change in habit.

The result is you are far more successful with your habit change.

These changes in thought will be extremely easy to do, provided you have already followed the steps for Looking Forward To Your Habit Change and Having A Plan Of Success for your habit change.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you eliminate 3 negative thoughts that make you feel uncomfortable with your new habit
  • It also helps you think 3 positive thoughts that make you feel much more comfortable with your new habit
  • The result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way

  1. Have complete confidence that you either can or will change your habit  

If you are tormented by self-doubt as you try to change your habit, you will naturally struggle more with creating the habit change.

For example, if you feel like you don't know whether you can quit smoking, and that you'll always be 'doomed' to be a smoker, no matter what you do, you'll naturally find it very hard and miserable to quit smoking. After all, you're dealing with a lot of stressful mental torment that works against you.

On the other hand, if you have complete confidence that you can and will change your habit with enough time, effort, and perseverance, you naturally enjoy greater happiness, peace of mind, and confidence about the change. 

And all of this helps you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way.

As always, these changes in thought will be extremely easy to do, provided you have already followed the steps for Looking Forward To Your Habit Change and Having A Plan Of Success for your habit change.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you eliminate 3 negative thoughts that make you doubt yourself and your ability to change your habits, which drains your self confidence and creates a lot of mental torture
  • The tool also helps you think 3 positive thoughts that make you more confident that you can change your habit with enough time, effort, and perseverance
  • The overall result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way, especially since you're enjoying greater peace of mind and confidence with every step you take

  1. Be more independent & feel good changing your habit with or without others' help (this makes you even more confident & helps eliminate feelings of 'social pressure' that can make it harder for you to change your habits)  

If you feel needy and insecure, feeling like you can't change your habits without other people's approval, then you'll naturally experience feelings of social pressure which will make it harder for you to change your habits.

For example, if you've smoked for a long time, and you're afraid of how your smoking friends will react if you quit smoking, or if they encourage you to smoke, then you're already experiencing feelings of social pressure that will make it harder for you to stop smoking.

The great news is that this sense of social pressure is extremel easy to eliminate by deliberately changing your thinking, so that you think in ways that make you feel fine no matter how people react to your change in habit, and regardless of whether they approve of it or not.

In such a way, you achieve your habit change in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way, since you're free of any of the social fears and social pressures that plague so many people when they try to change their habits.

As always, these changes in thought will be extremely easy to do, provided you have already followed the steps for Looking Forward To Your Habit Change and Having A Plan Of Success for your habit change.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you eliminate 3 negative thoughts that make you feel needy and insecure, and make you experience feelings of social fear and social pressure that make it harder for you to change your habit
  • The tool also helps you think 3 positive thoughts that make you feel more calm, relaxed, and confident around others, regardless of whether or not they accept of your habit change
  • The overall result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way, especially since you're free of the social fears and social pressures that make it harder for so many people to change their habits

  1. Have a completely successful mindset that naturally eliminates any fear of failure  

If you blame yourself for any failure to change your habits, or if you're afraid of failing to create the change you want, you will experience a great deal of miserable mental torment that makes it harder for you to change your habit.

For example, if you blame yourself for all your failed attempts to quit smoking, and you're afraid of failing again if you try to quit smoking once more, you guarantee that you will feel bad about yourself and your abilities, and you'll naturally be paralyzed with fear of taking action again.

The lesson: all of this focus on failure is extremely counter-productive and makes it harder for you to change your habits.

The great news is that you can easily learn how to have a more successful mindset by freeing yourself from focusing on failure and playing the blame game, and instead focusing on everything you've learned, gained, and achieved along the way related to your habit change.

The result is that you enjoy greater peace of mind, and you feel more successful, confident, and energized to take action to create the habit change you want.

The result is that you achieve your habit change in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way.

As always, these changes in thought will be extremely easy to do, provided you have already followed the steps for Looking Forward To Your Habit Change and Having A Plan Of Success for your habit change.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you eliminate 3 negative thoughts that make you have a 'failing' mindset that makes you feel miserable and paralyzes you with fear of future failure
  • The tool also helps you think 3 positive thoughts that make you enjoy a more successful mindsetm where you feel more calm, relaxed, and confident around others, regardless of whether or not they accept of your habit change
  • The overall result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way, especially since you're free of the social fears and social pressures that make it harder for so many people to change their habits

  1. Make it easy, enjoyable, and no big deal to change your habits (so that you enjoy changing your habits faster)  

If you think that it's going to be a hard, miserable, huge, big deal to change your habit, you're naturally going to dread the idea of making a habit change, and you're going to have a lot of fear and anxiety that you'll be able to successfully make the change.

All of this will make it harder for you to create the habit change you want, especially since these negative emotions naturally kill your motivation to take action to change your habit.

For example, if you think that it's going to be a hard, miserable, huge, big deal to quit smoking, you're approaching this change as if it's a gigantic mountain you have to climb, or a terrible enemy you have to face.

This is the way many smokers approach quitting smoking, and it naturally drains their confidence, and kills their motivation to quit smoking. The result is that they have far less success quitting smoking.

Fortunately, it's fairly easy to approach habit changes in a more confident manner, by seeing it as easy, enjoyable, and no big deal to change your habit, especially since you can enjoying everything you learn along the way, as well as the change in transformation that takes place.

The trick to adopting this super confident mindset is to first do all the steps for Looking Forward To Your Habit Change and Having A Plan Of Success for your habit change, as well as doing all the other positive changes in thought that make you feel better about taking action to change your habit.

In other words, you naturally "build up" to this super confident mindset by making all the other changes in thought first, which then makes this super confident mindset easy to accept. The result is that you then find you're able to achieve your habit change in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you eliminate 3 negative thoughts that make you feel like it will be a huge, big, miserable ordeal to change your habit
  • The tool also helps you think 3 positive thoughts that make you think it will be easy, enjoyable, and no big deal at all to change your habit
  • The overall result is that you enjoy an extremely confident mindset which naturally helps you achieve your habit change in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way

4. Take action to achieve your new habit change & enjoy your success

Click on each step to learn more.


  1. Take action to achieve your new habit change: have fun challenging yourself by seeing how easily you can do it  

Bottom line, you've got to actually take action to achieve your habit change in order to change it.

For example, going through all these mental steps you've learned makes it easier for you to quit smoking. But in order to quit smoking, you've got to do just that: you've got to take action to not smoke anymore.

The best way to do this is to have fun challenging yourself by seeing how easily you can achieve the change you want.

For example, even though the "common experience" is that it's extremely hard to quit smoking, see how easily you can go without smoking for 1 day, 3 days, or a week, or however long, now that you've made your changes in thinking.

By seeing how much easier it is to do, now that you've improved your thinking, your confidence in yourself and your abilities will soar.

Also, taking action is how you learn how to achieve your change even faster and easier by capitalizing on all sorts of learning opportunities.

For example, if you quit smoking for a day, and you find it easy, and then you got to a party and you start smoking after someone offers you a cigarette, this is not something to punish yourself for!

Instead, it's a learning opportunity: you learn that in this situation, you were compelled to smoke, for whatever reason, and then you take mental action so that you find it esier to not smoke in that scenario the next time around. In that way, your habit change becomes easier and easier, and you become stronger and stronger.

  • The Confidence & Success Tool helps you list what actions you've taken to create your habit change, and what you've learned from them
  • You're encouraged to see every step you've taken in a constructive light that makes it easier and easier to change your habit
  • The result is that you change your habit in a faster, easier, more enjoyable way

  1. See yourself in the most positive light that your mind can comfortably & honestly accept: 'upgrade' your self-perception and identity as soon as possible  

You will tend to act and behave in accordance with how you see yourself.

For example, if you see yourself as a smoker, you will naturally be more inclined to smoke. And if you see yourself as a non-smoker, you will naturally find it easy to not smoke and to turn down cigarettes that are offered to you.

So, use this to your advantage: when you make a habit change, 'upgrade' the way you see yourself as soon as possible, in order to make it easier for you create the habit change you want. 

Do this by accepting the most positive view of yourself and your situation that your mind can comfortably and honestly accept, without ever trying to force yourself to think something that is clearly false to you.

For example, if you currently smoke a lot, don't waste any time trying to force yourself to think "I'm a non-smoker", if you don't yet comfortably and honestly accept that as true.

Instead, do this. Stop thinking "I'm a smoker", and think somethng like "I'm someone who can quit smoking", or "I'm someone who's taking action to become smoke-free".

Already, these more positive perceptions of yourself will help you stop smoking faster and easier. Then, once you've quit smoking for a few days, or a week, or however long, and you appreciate that you can easily do this, then upgrade your perceptions of yourself again.

At this point, it's great to start thinking "I'm a non-smoker" if you can comfortably and honestly accept it as true.

The moral of the story, here, is to use self-perception as a valuable tool to help you create a habit change faster and easier, and to intentionally "upgrade" your self-perception as soon as possible, so that you achieve any habit change faster and easier.
