109: Building Good Habits and Breaking Bad Ones

By December 17, 2019February 2nd, 2023No Comments

They say by the time you’re 35, you’re basically a series of habits… habits of thought, habits of behavior, habits of emotions…⠀ ⠀

Habits are not just about behaviors. They include thoughts and emotions too.⠀

If it seems like you always have negative thoughts looping in your head and just can’t get on the positivity train, that’s because you haven’t checked your thought habits.⠀ ⠀

Meaning you haven’t yet disrupted your current thought patterns and consciously created new ones.⠀ ⠀

Emotional habits include snapping too easily road rage wallowing in self-pity, and even aspects of depression. ⠀ ⠀

Understanding how to break bad habits and build positive ones are super important, not just for success, but for survival.⠀

I’m really excited because today we have the author of THE BEST book I’ve ever read on habits… and I’ve read a lot.⠀ ⠀

This book has thousands of reviews on amazon and all five starts. Not 4 and half. FIVE. That’s rare y’all.⠀ ⠀

Our guest today is James Clear. Author of the best-selling book Atomic Habits. He is also one of the world’s leading experts on habit formation.⠀ ⠀

Today he’s going to teach us practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master those tiny little behaviors that lead to remarkable results.⠀


We will learn:

  • What’s actually happening in the brain when a habit is formed.
  • Why self control seems so difficult
  • And simple steps you can take to start building the habits needed to become the best version of you.
