Break the habit of working on your faults
How can you be happy and fulfilled if the focus is on your nagging faults, on what you can't do or what you want to stop or what you don't have in your life? It is just not possible.
Where you spend most of your focus will determine whether the habits you create can either work for you or not at all. Ok, you may be at a time when you want to change up your habits because of your perceived faults. If you only look at your faults, that is all you see and spending your time fixing your faults will narrow the view of yourself. It is not the uplifting motivating change you were expecting.
Negative momentum has a short motivation span and can be useful as a spark to get you going but when you stay with only working on your faults, you do get stuck.
Change the view.
Focus on what you bring to this life. Create the great habits that are life affirming and exploit your strengths. Yes, you do have wonderful qualities. Your qualities should be the most important asset to you, not your faults.
There is a motivation cycle as you focus on your qualities and set habits that work for you.
The habits you have instilled in your life are the foundation for your success and success inspires that state of feeling in you that all is right in your world. Ok, now when you have habit achievement that feeds back into the loop of success as something tangible you create and attain and there it is again that feeling of success. Habits stimulate the feeling of success.
You are tapping into the motivation and inspiration to stay consistent and reach beyond yourself.
When you create new habits with the incentive of removing your faults, it is easy at first then gets tougher to keep. Your faults just keep popping up when you give them so much attention. Break the habit of working on your faults and look at what thoughts, words and actions will expand your qualities and strengths. These are the positive life enriching habits that will get easier to mesh into your life and sustain.
