Habits are a structure of our daily lives. They govern the level of satisfaction, happiness and purpose in life. If I have a habit of eating my food quickly, I will face indigestion problems. Such a small bad habit can lead to serious issues. No problem is big or small! There’s always a time frame associated with the habit which makes it a problem or an opportunity. If I kick the ball too quick, I’ll figure it out from the result.
It will be an opportunity as it will teach me to be in a steady position. What if I kick it fast every time? It will become a problem for me for a long time. We can clearly see the time frame of the two situations, the situations are the only reason to drop something in our favour or to take it away…
Another aspect is the depth of the habit. It simply means the length of the roots of a problem. It will take a lot for you to eliminate certain things in life. Let’s take a valid case of a person addicted to smoking. He/she will try to leave it, but they can’t because there’s no such provision or fixed method to quit it. Believe me, chewing gums don’t help!
I also struggle with bad habits, but it is not smoking or drinking. Everyone has a space for their personal problems, the problems formed out of their habits. Unfortunately, they are helpless. This is the irony…
When you’re helpless, you’re the one to help yourself! Being helpless means there’s no exterior solution to your habit. You must figure out the solution. In other words, don’t be afraid of bad experiences. God will forgive you if you have true intentions. The solution lies with you..
I’ll give you a practical solution for some of your problems. The next time, while you’re in the process of repeating the same habit, just pluck an empty part of your mind to think of the habit.
Practice this only when you are in the stage of execution of the habit. Your mind will start to give you a solution. Apply each one of them, the one which suits will be your cup of tea.
It may sound like an advice, but I’ll give a scientific proof for it!
Just imagine yourself crossing the road. Suddenly, you see a truck approaching you!
Obviously, you’ll look for a solution. One of your habits is to cross the road in a careless manner. Now, in that problem, the mind will have no confusion and you will jump on the other side to save yourself.
Similarly, we have a mind which figures out a solution without any confusion when we’re in the stage of execution. A Practical situation leads to a more precise rectification.
Yes, your habit requires a rectification! Don’t be afraid to fail. One day, you’ll meet your inner expectations…
And yes… Quit smoking
