Have you ever taken the time to observe your daily habits, and separate the good from the bad? For instance, you just love bingeing on some sweet desserts right before you go to bed..even though you know it's going to increase your blood sugar levels.
Maybe you like to take an extra half an hour for your lunch break..even if it means further delaying the deadline of that report you're working on.
What about the kids..do you find yourself constantly threatening physical punishment whenever they step out of line? even if it means forgoing the opportunity to reason and cajole them into accepting your point of view?
Now take a step back..and try to recall the way you were before you developed these habits. Surely you didn't just decide to eat dessert before bed one day?
Or spend an extra half an hour for lunch, out of the blue?
Did you always have your cane ready, the moment your child entered your life?
No, never, of course not. You weren't always like this, but what caused this change and more importantly, how come it's so difficult to kick these ugly habits?
Unsure? Just have a look around you then. Your environment can hold a whole host of obvious clues, and you'll be shocked to discover how many bad habits you've picked up from places or people you come into contact with on a regular basis.
Can't seem to change yourself? Maybe you've been going about it the wrong way. Have a go at changing your environment!
Even the finest sword plunged into salt water will eventually rust.
