Only You can Change Your Behavior
It doesn’t matter if you want to give up pizza and fast food for organic vegetarian meals or you promised yourself that you’d leave work by 5 PM instead of staying at your desk til 8 every night. No matter what you want to change in your life, it’s up to you. It’s pretty easy to play the “blame game” and claim that things aren’t your fault when you slip up. (Looking back, I’ve done it myself a few times.)
Sure, your girlfriend might have been the one to bring home a bag from Burger King the same night you were going to make tofu and broccoli for dinner, but most likely she didn’t force you to eat those French fries and drink that chocolate shake.
It can also be really hard to leave work on time—especially if you feel compelled to always make your boss super happy. Even so, if it’s gotten to the point that you never see your family or sunlight, it’s probably a good idea to start getting out of the office when you’re supposed to. If your job is so demanding that the place can’t run without you, it might be time to find an assistant—or find a new job.
We All Control Our Own Actions
Most of us have realized by now that breaking bad habits or changing your behavior is usually easier said than done, but think of it this way: you might not be able to control your thoughts (if you’re a die-hard junk food junkie, it’s kinda doubtful you’ll suddenly think Yummm! Gimme more! when faced with a salad) but you can control your actions.
Support from friends and family members is awesome, but if you want to change your behavior and take control of a certain aspect of your life—remember that it’s up to you!Take Action. Get Results.
