Our Moral Compass: What True Strength Is
“Who is strong? He that can conquer his bad habits.”
-Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanac
We all have bad habits. But we all can overcome them through strength and perseverance. That is essentially what today’s message is from one of our Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. Dr. Timothy Legg wrote an article on Healthline about how to break and habit and make it stick. Here are his recommendations:
Identify your triggers
Focus on what you can change
Enlist a friend’s support
Replace the habit with a different one
Leave yourself reminders
Prepare for slipups
Let go of an all or nothing mindset
Change your environment
Visualize yourself breaking the habit
Practice self care
Motivate yourself with rewards for success
Give it time
Know that you don’t have to do it alone
These tips if applied will be well worth it to breaking any bad habit. Good luck!
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards managing yourself better?
