HOW THE POWER OF HABITS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE by Alli Worthington

 

 

Hey Beautiful Ones,

I happened to open this email a few days ago and just had to share this post with you. So good! As you know from my Winter/Spring video series, I am a diehard believer in healthy routines and habits. Enjoy and love to hear your thoughts so leave a comment!

Love, Tiff 

 

Our small daily habits add up to our success or failure in areas of life. Understanding and mastering our habits (the big ones and the small ones) is a key secret of success.

There are truths I’ve come to realize about habits, whether they are considered good or bad habits, and whether people are trying to start new habits or shed undesirable ones.

If you’re looking to make change in your life, these six truths are sure to help.

 

1. BABY STEPS ADD UP

When trying to change a habit, the cold turkey approach is most often a recipe for frustration. I find that little itty bitty incremental shifts in behaviors is usually a far better way to ensure long-term change.

For example, if you want to incorporate more exercise into your life, you don’t need to say, “I’m going to join a gym and go for an hour every morning before work.” Instead start easily, such as resolving to walk around the block every evening and doing 5 sit-ups. Baby steps!


2. BUILDING ON ACHIEVEMENTS CREATES MOMENTUM

Once you start changing a habit with baby steps, you can build on that success. That walk around the block becomes too short, so you extend it to the next block. You find you don’t stop at 5 sit-ups, you keep going and add a couple more.

It’s all about momentum; an object in motion tends to stay in motion, both literally and figuratively. Once change is kicked into gear, more change happens!


3. AVOIDING TRIGGERS IS CRITICAL

Actions often happen as reactions to an event, situation, or other stimuli; habits are often prompted by an outside trigger. Recognizing what these triggers are can go a long way towards changing your behavior.

For example, want to stop gossiping? Maybe skip that coffee date that seems to revolve around who’s doing what in the neighborhood.

Want to stop snacking at night while you watch TV? Maybe read a book in a different room instead of turning on that sitcom. (I know, I know, easier said than done!)

 

4. BE MINDFUL AND AWARE

Do you reach for the sugar packets every time you have a latte, without even considering going without? Be aware of your actions and realize that you do have the choice to skip the sugar.

As you go through your day cognizant of what you are doing and the choices you have, you’ll likely be surprised at how much you do on a daily basis goes unnoticed because it’s second nature.


5. BELIEVE IN YOUR CALLING

Know that as you are living out your calling, through the power of Jesus, you are capable of achieving whatever it is you are called to do. You can conquer those bad habits, and you can adopt those good ones. But the entire house of cards can fall down if you don’t start with a solid foundation of confidence in your God-given ability to do so.


6. EMBRACE (LITTLE) FAILURES

What? Failure? Include it? Yes. If you aren’t failing now and again, then you aren’t challenging yourself. The person who never risks anything obviously isn’t going to fail, because they are playing it safe. Failure is just a stepping stone on the way to success!

Real change can’t happen if you don’t push yourself, and pushing yourself means potential failure on occasion. Fight the urge to be a perfectionist and allow the road to be a little bumpy on the way to your destination.

 

There you go. Six truths about the power of habits in your life that help you find success. Which truth about habits resonated with you? Let me know in the comments.

And if you found this article helpful, please share it with your friends!

GO BLAZE, Baby!

 

BAMMMMM.

The falling down part, the struggle, the strain, the humility, the stretching, the minor disappointment…ugh, your light has been temporarily dimmed. You can feel it. Like one of those dimmer switches, your light is not it’s highest wattage.

 

But, it’s the refusing to give up…

choosing to rise,

choosing to brush yourself off,

choosing to learn the lesson,

choosing to shine again,

and allowing it to empower you to step forward into your next level of greatness is what true success is all about. Who feels me?

 

We are the Phoenix:
1. A bird in Egyptian mythology that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire, laterto rise renewed from its ashes.
2. A person or thing of unsurpassed excellence or beauty.
___________________________________________

Life circumstances and horrible choices have nearly killed me, literally.  Back in the day, I have been in such a dark hole and have done random drugs with random people I didn’t know. I should be dead and certainly never thought I would see the light again much less strive to be full of love and light. We can’t have the light without the dark. Warmth without the cold. Highs without the lows.

Embrace those seasons you don’t feel so shiny and sparkly because thats when your are being refined and purified.

The embers are becoming a flame.

GO BLAZE, BABY!

#MondayMotivation // Mood Dressing, Thanks Elvis

Did you have a mini breakdown in your closet this morning because among the cram packed clothes you “didn’t have anything to wear”?  Been there, done that. You try a few things on that end up on the floor, the heat rises to your face, you can’t control it, you may drop a curse word (or 3), you yell at your reflection in the mirror and now you have to reapply deodorant. WHEWWWW. EXHALE. One of the ways I keep my sanity in the closet is to dress for what mood I’m in. I think we get so confused by what we see in the magazines, on celebrities and fashion bloggers that we get paralyzed when we try to put on our own outfits. It’s great to get inspiration from stylish people, but then make it your own!

Wear the hot pink shoes.

Wear the high pony.

Wear the polka dot skirt.

Try that thing you’ve been hesitant about. You know that “thing” you have tried a few times, but weren’t brave enough to actually leave the house wearing. Ok, yes- it may not work. But HEY— it might just be TOTALY FABULOUS! I’m often asked to describe my style. Hmm– The only way I can think to describe it is “Multi-Personality” because I dress for my moods. One day I’m feeling like a rocker chick, the next day boho and the particular day of the above photo– I was thinking of those fun Elvis movies from the 60’s set in Hawaii. Loved the actresses (his love interests) wardrobes in the 60’s! Bold floral prints are everywhere right now so go try it.

But, most days I’m channeling the 70’s era mixed with a few current trends. I’m grateful that being a self-employed TV Host/Coach I have the liberty to wear whatever I want. I get it, many of you may not be able to wear a Def Leppard concert tee to work, but you can certainly express yourself in your personal life.

What about you?

What’s your style?

Stuck in a rut?

Last Saturday I did my yearly Spring closet shake up. Usually I do this by March, but with all the traveling I’m a bit late. Its takes energy and creativity so do this when you’re feeling it so it’s fun instead of overwhelming. Put on some fun music and shake it all up. Pull things out that haven’t moved in a while. Try them on. Mix and match. That floral jumpsuit in the photo is actually 2 years old. I forgot I even had it until I shook up my closet and found it hanging behind a bunch of long dresses.

Just remember– Do you! Do your thing! Don’t feel like you have to be a style sheep and do what the masses are doing. Don’t buy labels just because everyone else is. Clones are so boring. It’s great to get inspiration but then make it your own.

YOU CAN’T BUY STYLE!

Just because that dress is a label and cost $2K doesn’t mean it looks great on everyone.

What’s that THING you’re going to try this week?

THE BEST IS YET TO COME… and more!

Hello Gorgeous!
One of my dear soul sisters sent this to me and I just had to share it with you. Please take a moment to read each one, line by line and really think about it. Resist the urge to skim through the list quickly! Trust me. You will be inspired and probably a bit pissed off. A few will be like a healing salve to your heart and others will be like a kick in the butt. Enjoy!

36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

42. The best is yet to come…

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.
