Ask yourself: What would the best version of me be doing now?

Ask it every morning, afternoon and evening. Try it for a few days. It helps maintaining those new year resolutions 😉 We constantly live by habits. Determine for yourself which of these habits needs improvement or to be absolutely replaced by a higher quality habit.

An example: Your alarm goes off. How many minutes will it take for you to get out of bed? What sort of habits do you use to start of any regular day? Do you immediately make coffee or go to the bathroom first?

These are subtle habits, but strongly rooted into your system. Unless something exciting or nerve wreaking happens the other day, you’d probably use the same habits over and over again from start to the end of any day.

For the new year resolutions  guru’s, one might want to lose a few pounds or gain extra muscle. First of all, you know it’s gonna suck. Plus you know as well as any other that in order to get something done, leave the old useless habits behind and be open to live up to new ones.

This is why I strongly recommend trying the 30 day ice cold shower challenge. Simply stay 1 till 3 minutes under bone chilling cold water. You might say: This dude is on crack!

Well, not crack, just an ego slaying warrior. You may call yourself that when you succeed with the challenge. Cause, hardly anybody would do it. It’s so “un”comfortable that you call it crazy. But it’s even crazier not taking action to accomplish the goals that you want! It leaves regret behind, trust me… that is worse!

The cold shower challenge builds a tough habit in you. Stepping inside pouring cold water, with no hesitation requires guts. This kind of guts is a strong motivator for turning you into the best version of yourself, in any situation.

That’s my piece of advice for this new year. Happy 2017!

Cheerios,

Stephan

  1. I have been browsing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It
    is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Great article! Adding to this, I think we have the tendency to hold onto habits which worked well for us the previous time. Just like when you visit a restaurant, and you do not enjoy the experience, you are more likely to not come back. This works the same way with habits, in that if our previous actions worked well for us, we are more likely to hold onto that habit until there is one instance it does not work out well for us, or inconveniences us.
