You have the power to change your life.

We all dream of getting rid of bad habits and forming new ones. However, the idea of changing our lives for the better is only exciting at first. As days go by, the excitement fades as reality hits us in the head. We imagine ourselves living a different life the very next day but the truth is, real positive change takes time to materialize. The point being that it’s possible to change as long as we persevere with the process.

Social scientist and behaviour researcher B.J. Fogg, PhD started the project Tiny Habits to demonstrate through first-hand experience the importance of taking one step each day towards habit creation. Tiny Habits is an ongoing online program and over 3,000 “Habiteers” have tried the program since its kicked off last December 2011. The main task is pretty simple: start with a small act (one push-up, flossing just one tooth), find yourself a crisp anchor, and always acknowledge your progress through celebration.

Dr. Fogg reiterated that his goal is to help people learn how habits work. In our fast-paced era, we’ve formed the assumption that everything has to happen fast. Unfortunately, things that matter most in life, such as habits, relationships, and success, take more than a blink. Changing our life forever starts in small acts that we gradually embed in our subconscious.

Real change occurs over time. To quote Olympic silver medallist Jim Ryun: “Motivation is what keeps you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
