They say the only two things that can change a man are the people he meets and the books he reads. And while this may be true, complete change occurs when a person gets a change of heart and makes up their mind to relinquish his old attitudes and habits. It also occurs when one completely assumes new habits that sharply contrast their previous conduct. Real change happens when one makes a conscious decision to go beyond the reach of the entanglements of their former self.
It is not uncommon to make mistakes, in fact, it is a human weakness. Repeating it all over again is the again is their biggest undoing.Many behaviors or trends often start off as harmless, even fun but become increasingly difficult to contain or control. Things then move from bad to worse and then sorry with the ability to stop things slowly slipping from the doer’s grasp. The main victims most often than not are usually the doer’s immediate relations or those who depend on them as they become a mere shell of their former self. They become increasingly incapable of making themselves useful around them making them more of a burden that draws everyone around them down. They become than a thorn in the foot that gets in deeper with every single step a person takes. And though continued wandering along this path leads to destruction, it is certainly never too late for anyone to redeem themselves. No one is ever condemned to be a certain way on God’s green earth.
It always boils down to a person’s attitude and sincere desire to change. This is not to say they can undo what they did, they certainly don’t have the power. They simply get a new lease of life, and a divine chance to write their own scripts again. Many agree that this is never easy and takes great courage and determination; it is the result that matters. There are a few habits that if one assumes, he or she begins a sure but tough road to recovery. Some of these habits may be as simple as eating one balanced healthy meal a day, experiencing enjoyment in completing a physical challenge , drinking plenty of water , developing a morning routine or even waking up earlier and clearly defining one’s priorities. One should also always cultivate great relationships besides seeking the purpose in everything they do building their mental toughness.
1.Building Mental Toughness
It is no secret that everything we do begins with a single thought or idea. The mind is a powerful organ as it preserves the sole ability and responsibility to dictate what every other part of the body can or cannot do besides having the power to check itself. Sadly, it is susceptible to vices that reduce its judgment and entirely eliminate its ability to control and protect itself against them. Building one’s mental strength, therefore, goes a long way that lives are changed forever.
2.Eating Well and Drinking Plenty of Water
Changing a person’s eating habits has been discovered to have a profound effect on their general mood and mental health. An individual’s ability to maintain a jovial mood and positive attitude is kicked a notch higher.
3.Cultivate Great Relationships.
A person who desires a change in their lives must endeavor to establish healthy and long-lasting relationships. This is because relationships have the ability to cushion a person from their misery, be it financial, physical or emotional. Having a person to talk to and talking to them sorts the problem out halfway.
4.Developing a Morning Routine
Waking up earlier and developing a morning routine encourages the development of a structure or routine that never existed before. A definite and better way of doing things is developed effectively reducing one’s probability of failure. A different and arguably better outcome is, therefore, inevitable
5.Seek the Purpose In Everything You Do
It is true that the things people do every day as a consequence of their choices or an act of their survival. Most people do not do what they love and neither do they understand why they do what they do. A person must always know that their destiny or future is never really set and that they hold the key to it. Seeking the purpose in what they do gives a person a sense of progress and achievement giving them a sense of worth. This changes their outlook in life as it opens their eyes to who they really are, changing their lives forever.
