How do you change your habits and how you think?
The answer: one decision at a time.
When I was in my early 20's, I was not a people person. I was a total introvert. I didn't know how to talk to people. I had horrible customer service skills. I sucked at sales. I sucked at everything.
I realized that if I didn't become a little more extroverted and didn't learn how to talk to people, I wasn't going anywhere in life.
When I visited the physical therapist who I volunteered with after I graduated from PT school, she said, "you were so silent when you started here ." I wasn't a kid at that point. I was a grown adult and I had poor social skills.
These days, I can go to a party or social event where I don't know anybody and start talking to them like we're best friends. It truly is remarkable how much I've changed.
But that was a loong process. I had to make the decision to change, start practicing, and then develop that skill over time. I changed one day at a time.
That's how change is many times; one day at a time.
We overestimate how much we can change in one day, but underestimate how much we can change in one year or five years.
Change is what makes life fun. Without it, I think it would be pretty boring.
The good news, it doesn't take 10 years to recovery from an eating disorder or to establish sane eating habits. In fact, you can do it much faster than you think. If that's what you want, then click here: https://bit.ly/2UQcLBW
