This was the graph drawn few weeks back โฎ,

And this is something from my own imagination and experience of building a habit ๐ŸŒฑ.

And because I understood this essence of the habit-building process ๐Ÿ“ˆ. I was able to develop two big habits and that's how to this date I give 2 hours straight to my workout ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ consistently for the last four years and was able to build a habit of reading every day for the last 6 months which I once hated.

So ether you want to build any habit or want to break any habit, itโ€™s a game of mind ๐Ÿง .

You may have observed that whenever you do something new, you feel a need for conscious decision and effort to do it and you will feel some kind of resistance that works against you. But then there is something which all are doing consistently for many years now, such as brushing your teeth in the morning. This is a habit we all have built and we all do it every single day without any effort.

So what's the catch here? ๐Ÿง

And this happens due to something called subconscious neural pathways. So when you repeat some kind of task in a certain fashion for a long period of time, that builds a neural pathway in your mind for that thing. And once itโ€™s built, you donโ€™t need a conscious effort to do it every day.

So itโ€™s important to build neural pathways for good things and to break neural pathways for subjectively bad things. And for that you need two things, one is consistency and the other is patience.

So take a screenshot of this graph and spend some time with it and let me know in the comments what you think of it and how you will implement this new knowledge into your life.
