Behavior change is a process, and people often approach change from all the wrong angles.
BJ Fogg, a Stanford University professor, talks about 10 mistakes people make when trying to change their behavior.
Here is one of the mistakes:
Relying on willpower for long-term change. Imagine willpower doesn’t exist. That’s step #1 to a better future. Willpower is based on trying to control your behavior. Willpower is white-knuckling it. Willpower is temporary.
How have you seen this derail your wellness journey?
Instead, get to the roots of why you have the drive to engage in the unhealthy behavior in the first place.
Willingness NOT Willpower.
Just for today, I am willing to put the effort in to be healthy.
