Hi everyone, welcome to The Limitless Blog! My name is Radhika and I'm the founder of Jiva More Life. Our mission is to inspire you to believe that you are limitless.
Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is a successful life. Building yourself and working towards your goals is a daily process and that's what we're talking about today.
How do you work on yourself as a person?
I think for me, that's looking at my lifestyle, my every day activity, which is habits for me, and figuring out if those habits are helping me or hurting me. Do I have the good habits that I've been working on or at one point were working on? or did those leave me and I'm just doing whatever comes to me? I think habits are the things you do when you're not even thinking. So if you wake up and eat a healthy breakfast everyday and it becomes a habit, then you don't even have to wake up and think about it again. Creating habits really helps me.
What's a life hack you’ve learned about habits?
When you're starting them, take it one day at a time. If you're trying to build a habit, just think, I need to do this today. For example, if you want to start working out every day, don't think I need to do it forever or I want to do it forever or even long-term. Just say today, I'm going to work out no matter what. And then the next day again--today I'm going to work out no matter what. Everyday is just about today, and then you're not overwhelmed and you can really seize the moment to make it happen. And eventually, over time, the more you make it happen, the more it cements into you as a habit. Then sooner or later, you'll see you have that habit formed where you don't even have to think about it because you took it one day at a time.
I think this is great! Especially that you’ve found a way to keep working on yourself everyday and keep creating good habits. I feel like I will always start a new habit and be really good about it for about a week and then I end up going back to my old ways. I wonder if you’ve ever dealt with this and how you’ve been able to push through that one week mark.
