Here are the 4 reasons why habits do not stick.
As a Personal Trainer, I have seen it all when it comes to habits not sticking. Here are the 4 most popular reasons as to why they do not stick and what to do about it.
1. Lack of motivation
2. Lack of time
3. Lack of confidence
4. Lack of direction
At first, they are all obstacles, if you are not careful they quickly become excuses. And you know what they say about excuses. Excuses are like a$$holes, everyone has one!
In this video, I am going to discuss what the 4 reasons are and how to work with them.

In the book The Artist Way, Julia Cameron talks about Artist Dates and teaches us that we ought to do these once a week.
What is an Artist Date? It is something that inspires creativity. It is something you do that is not your usual routine. It doesn’t have to be long. Although the longer the better. It can be something you enjoyed as a child, something you want to see, something you have been wanting to do.
It is the random, messy, colorful, musical, sensual, experimental, fully engaged, and artful side of life.
It is guaranteed to inspire creativity!

I hate the term #toxicpositivity. And I don’t use the word 'hate' unless it is absolutely necessary.
Why? Because positivity saved my life. There is nothing toxic about it. That my friends is an illusion!!!
As a survivor of Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder I could have easily blamed positivity for all my problems. And told people, “You don’t know what I went through!!” or “Please, it was really bad.”
No, I learned from many years of therapy, awareness, and contemplation that does absolutely no good.
All that does is keep you in victim mode. And after being in victim mode for so long you come out and victimize everyone and everything - including positivity. #dumb
Instead, enter victor mode. Become aware that these victim/victimizer thoughts are all illusions.
Serve the principles of truth, integrity, courage and above all LOVE!!
Those principles my friend ARE POSITIVITY.
Those principles saved my life!! And could save yours....

The 3 main and basic habits we focus upon are:
1. Thought habits
2. Wellness habits
3. Success habits (entrepreneurship)
Believe it or not, all 3 apply to Y-O-U! Here is why:
Thought habits dominate our lives. If you do not have healthy thought habits you will suffer from anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, loss of life-control, pain, poor relationships, mood swings, and more! Thought habits are probably the most important habit you can build.
Wellness habits are similar to thought habits but they are more about the home you live in for your entire...
Do you resent things that happened in your past? I get it.
But when you reframe this issue and trust the process things change.
Because instead of resenting the things you start to see they were essential to get you to where you are today.
You will also see they are merely stepping stones to get you to your future.
That is, IF, you stop resenting and start trusting.
Trust the process. This is a thought habit.

This is the basis for habit building. It is also probably one of the most difficult to keep, unless you re-frame it.
Take it one day at a time, Take it slow and steady.
I don’t really like the word “sacrifice.” It feels so final. How about we change that to “easy to do.”
But we can sacrifice the little things, one at a time!
We got this!
In his book The Slight Edge, Jeff Olson lets us in on a secret to habit building and it is one of the basics in my FREE course.
What is that? It is the saying, “It is easy to do, it is easy not to do.”

There is a better way.

Comfort zones are a funny thing!
A lot of times we need to step away from the comfort of the moment to grow.
We will use our Frankenstein brain to allow us to remain in the comfort of the moment and then we miss out on so much.
Open your mind, step out of your comfort zone, and see what is behind that door.
This is a thought habit and also a success habit. As a Transformation Coach, I teach both types of habits as well as wellness habits. I call it a habit coach!
How are you going to grow?

Did you know that the beats per minute on the song can and will affect the intensity of your workout? I found my seniors perform better workouts when the music is at least 125 bpm, sometimes higher.

You know when you throw a rock into the water, it has this ripple effect? Like this?
That is what happens when you do any sort of action. Good or bad. You cause this ripple effect and it goes on and on. It also comes back to you, but we'll leave that for another blog post!
This quote was in my morning oracle cards the other day. To me, it is all about that ripple effect and reaching high for my goals.
How do I do this? Well, I stick to my habits #1. By creating great habits in mind, body, and spirit you easily create an awesome ripple effect.
It can also work the other way around. What kind of ripple do you want to send out into the world?
If you do not like the ripple effect you are sending perhaps you need better habits.
Need help with this? I offer a FREE habit building course that works on this very thing. Build healthy habits in mind, body, and spirit and watch your...
