“Help me, I’m addicted!”
We all have habits that we want to change.
Here then, is the most important chain of life.
Thoughts –> Words –> Actions –> Habits –> Character –> Destiny
To change our habits, we must change our thoughts. But that is often where we get stuck.
If I love junk food, and eat 3 burgers a meal, it would be very hard to give burgers up. However it would certainly be easier to eat 3 burgers, but also include some fruit or salad. i.e. it is easier to bring light to a dark room, rather than shovel the darkness out. Cant stop eating burgers? Add a 5 minute workout.
Said another way, it is easier to add some good, than subtract some bad. This keeps our thoughts in check and reinforces positivity.
Eventually, the good will outstrip the bad. Time to unblock the chain.
