Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit

Rohn: The 4 Powerful Ways to Change a Bad Habit | Influence vs manipulation | Scoop.it
No one understands as I do the inherent difficulty in changing old and persistent habits. But habits begin to change when we begin to change our perceptions.


Most of us don’t experience a cataclysmic transformation. No, for most of us change comes as an evolutionary process of almost imperceptible changes. We just keep nudging ourselves in the right direction, forming one or two better habits.


But what really makes us sit up and take notice? What really causes us to shed our old habits and take action?

(From the article): The best definition for “resolve” I’ve ever heard came from a schoolgirl in Foster City, California. Many years ago, I was lecturing about success to a group of bright kids at a junior high school. I asked, “Who can tell me what ‘resolve’ means?” Several hands went up, and I did get some pretty good definitions. But the last was the best. A shy girl from the back of the room got up and said with quiet intensity, “I think resolve means promising yourself you will never give up.” That’s it! That’s the best definition I’ve ever heard: Promise yourself you’ll never give up.

Happy Halloween everyone! Just for fun, I found this timely SlideShare that identifies all the essential qualities for being influential.


Oh, and BTW -- they are also the qualities of fabulous storytelling.


Want to change the world? Then keep this list handy. And each quality is framed as a "Monster" for the holiday -- as in "these are monsters to embrace, because they will bring you results in monster proportions". And that's a good thing :))


Have fun!

21 Ways to Motivate Yourself

21 Ways to Motivate Yourself | Influence vs manipulation | Scoop.it

You'd like to think you are going to be just as motivated and enthusiastic on Day 1,672 of work as you were when you first began.

 

But sometimes we can all use a bit of help to keep going.

 

In the face of the inevitable obstacles you are going to encounter, here are ideas that have worked for me, my friends who run both entrepreneurial and micro businesses, and others I talked to.

 

1. Necessity.  This one is incredibly underrated which is why I put it first. You have bills that have to be paid and employees who are counting on you. If those two things won't keep you going, I don't know what will.

(From the article)" Surround yourself with people you want to be and it's far less taxing to do what you should be doing.


In his excellent book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg says: "When people join groups where change seems possible, the potential for that change to occur becomes more real."

The Longevity Project, which studied over 1000 people from youth to death had this to say:

The groups you associate with often determine the type of person you become. For people who want improved health, association with other healthy people is usually the strongest and most direct path of change. [The Longevity Project]

And the research on friendship confirms this. From my interview with Carlin Flora, author ofFriendfluence:

Research shows over time, you develop the eating habits, health habits, and even career aspirations of those around you. If you're in a group of people who have really high goals for themselves you'll take on that same sense of seriousness.
