Creation Coaching Quickie on Habits!
In this week’s CCQ I share why you need to have Habits!
Hey there creators, this is Jennifer Scott with another Creation Coaching Quickie helping you create the life and business that you love.
So today I’m really excited to talk to you all about creating awesome habits. Now, why would I want to talk about creating habits? Habits sound kind of boring and not very exciting or fun. But habits; creating really solid, consistent habits is one of the most important things you need to do to create what you want.
And the reason that this is on the top of my mind is because I recently completed one of my own creation goals. At the start 2016 I set out to create my most healthy, fit, sexy body ever. And I knew in order to make this happen I had to really commit to a program or something that was going to challenge me and push me to create exactly what I wanted.
So I signed up for this great program called From Pushups to Pinups a 90 day action pack, intensive fitness program!
Now, the idea itself, sure that sounded great but to actually make it happen meant that I needed to commit to some daily habits. I had to change my eating plan. I had to get rid of all yucky food, processed food, junk food, eat a really clean, healthy diet and I had to create the habit of doing some cardio and getting my heart rate up 5x/week! And I also had to commit to going to the gym and work with my personal trainer 4x/week!
So these were some pretty big habits I had to commit to, right? And here’s what happened. It wasn’t always easy, it wasn’t always what I wanted to do. Sometimes I didn’t want to always eat that clean meal. Sometimes I didn’t want to do my cardio, sometimes I didn’t want to go to the gym. But my desire for what I wanted to create, a fit, healthy, sexy body was stronger. And my resolve to see it through was stronger than my desire to do a cheat day or to fall of the wagon. But if I didn’t have the structure and the habits to know exactly what I needed to do each day I wouldn’t have made it through the 3 months.
So if you’re working to create something in your life, what are the daily habits and actions you need to put in place so as each day goes by it is adding up, think of a snowball down a hill. Each snowflake, it’s adding up, adding up, adding up, adding up. And eventually it’s big enough that you see this gigantic snowball or you see the thing that you most want to have.
And for me it worked. I had the photo shoot the other day and I felt great, my body was exactly what I had pictured that being and it was a lot to do with my commitment to following through the daily habits that that were set up for me. Eating right, working out and showing up to my gym.
So if you’re working to create something and you feel like you’ve been working at it for a long time and it just keeps alluding you, it’s not quite there, I’d like you to think about what are the actions that you’re taking daily to help that creation goal become a reality.
For example if you’re working to create money in your business, are you doing those daily actions, the daily habits like being visible online or connecting with your potential customers or reaching out to people to network with? Are you doing that consistently?
If you’re working to create a solid mindset and feel good about yourself, are you doing your reading every day? Are you reading up your affirmations? Are you doing your visualizations?
If you’re working on getting healthier and creating a sexy, healthy body, are you committed to eating well and nourishing your body, to moving your body and getting some exercise?
So what are the habits that you are committing to on your way to your creation goal? I hope this helps you. Reach out if you want to talk or if you have any questions. Take care and I’ll speak to you soon.
