Is there a way to guarantee you’ll get started with your resolutions, develop great habits that stick, and change your life forever without ever relying on being super motivated?
What Are Mini Habits?
A mini habit is a “too small to fail” action that you take each day. Here’s what some may look like.
1. Do one pushup a day
2. Read 2 pages of a book a day
3. Do 30 seconds of meditation a day (one of my mini habits)
At first this will appear to be too easy and unlikely to lead to any significant results, but that’s only if you don’t understand the science behind it.
Once you do a single pushup for instance, you’ll more than likely want to knock out a few more. Then once the blood is flowing, next thing you know you may be doing some pull-ups too. That’s what happened with Stephen, and that’s what happens with myself and countless others who take on mini habits. They bypass the initial resistance to a behavior.
But EVEN IF you don’t go past your mini habit, that’s STILL a success. The idea is that you’ll gain such consistency with your new behavior that it becomes second nature. Then it becomes a part of your identity. Then you do it (and a lot more) all on your own without needing any willpower or discipline.
People are raving about how much this is helping them finally develop great habits that stick, and it’s exactly the type of approach I recommend to make gradual and long-lasting changes to your life.
I suggest you check out Stephen’s book Mini Habits on Amazon to learn more about applying this in your life.
