An article from the book ‘Super Leader Strategies’ by Manoj J Lekhi.
It is a human trait to adhere rigidly to some habits by default. Some of these are routine, almost daily. They are also unique to each individual.
Some are detrimental habits which are harmful for either our physical or our mental health such as addiction to tea, coffee, cigarettes or food habits like having too much of sugar, fried foods, etc. Some may be simple routine habits, like being late for work every day, forgetting to brush teeth, watching too much TV etc. These are some unwholesome habits we would want to change or break.
Other than these there are skill habits that we want to learn such as some art or driving or cycling, but we are unable to pursue them due to shortage of time. People also have thinking habits like feeling low, complaining, making excuses or harbouring negative thoughts which could be changed to positive emotions. There are some work-related habits, for instance, laid-back attitude, procrastination, laziness, stress and many such habits which can be eliminated from our behaviour.
Certain relationship habits like unhealthy gossiping, backbiting, stubbornness that tend to drain out our energy, and one may wish to break such habits. Habits related to the organization which we wish to change like ego clashes or dissatisfaction from work and many such. Certain behavioural habits like anger, irritation, being judgemental, unknowingly become a part our system. Situational habits like losing our calm and reacting strongly in a particular situation become a repeated pattern in us.
We may also aim to create certain habits that are uplifting ones such as yoga, getting up early, meditating or offering services to others or developing strong and empowering thoughts or moral habits such as being honest, loyal or truthful. It is also possible to inculcate habits related to money which can lead one to immense abundance.
We make many resolutions every year. Some are continued and some are broken in just a few days. Most of the time, we do not succeed in overcoming our deep-rooted habits through overnight resolutions.
Some may even wonder about the possibility of transforming certain habits in one single day when one has not been able to do so throughout one’s life.
We have been researching on, learning and understanding this process since 29 years. The human brain is divided into three parts. We have studied the detailed working of the brain and how it operates from its different parts in different situations. This is a part of an in-depth study of Neuroscience and Quantum Physics.
We have developed a One Day Workshop which not only helps to break unwanted habits but also succeeds in aiding to make the desirable habits.
We have observed through studies that if we set 6 parameters, habits are very easy to make or break. I have personally gone through making and breaking many of my own habits by
following the principles shared in this workshop. And like me, many others have also been benefi ted in creating and inculcating uplifting personal habits through the learnings from this programme.
The uniqueness of this workshop is that it is designed to ensure consistency and practicality so as to effortlessly instil the most valued habits wished to be developed. It essentially involves following a habit for a period of 66 days, preferably in the presence of a support group with multiple accountability partners and consequence for not living up to your resolution. This ensures huge compliance and hard wiring of the new habit.
Work on making or breaking your habit for at least 66 days.
A Super Leader is changing his/her unproductive habits 24x7x365. He/She has mastered this art of dropping unwanted habits and inculcating uplifting ones.
