Como eliminar un mal hábito de una vez

Los malos hábitos no son algo nuevo, es algo que todo mundo tenemos. Creo que no conozco una sola persona que no tenga al menos un mal hábito.

Hay de malos hábitos a malos hábitos, es una escala, claro que hay peores.

Pero te tengo buenas noticias, así como podemos obtener malos hábitos, también podemos eliminarlos, esas son más que excelentes noticias.

Todos somos capaces de cambiar, ¡así que vamos a hacerlo!

Dentro de esta lista de malos hábitos que tenemos, existen dos clases:

  • Los que sabemos que tenemos
  • Los que aun no hemos notado, no estamos conscientes de ellos.

¿Cómo te puedes deshacer de un mal hábito si no sabes que existe?

Para eso existen los amigos, y es cuando recomiendo que pidas la más sincera opinión de tus amigos y familiares.

Ellos te podrán decir cuales son los malos hábitos que tu no has podido notar.

¿Qué pasa con los que conocemos? Esos son los difíciles. ¿Por qué? Deben ser difíciles si los conoces y aún los tienes. Pero aun así puedes trabajar en ellos para eliminarlos.

1. Querer es poder

Debes de realmente quererlo, creo que ahí está a clave de todo, en realmente desear que ese mal hábito se vaya.

Hay personas que dicen que quieren dejar de hacer, pero realmente no se comprometen, por lo tanto ese hábito jamás desaparecerá.

Si realmente lo deseas, ese será el primer gran paso para poderlo lograr.

2. Si no estás del todo convencido, haz una lista

Puede pasar que realmente no estés del todo convencido de eliminar el hábito, me ha pasado. A veces creo que mi cabeza está exagerando. Es por eso que cuando llegue ese momento de duda, recomiendo ampliamente hacer una lista.

Haz una lista de porque es necesario eliminar el mal hábito, ¿qué vas a lograr cuando lo hagas?, ¿cuáles son los beneficios?, ¿por qué lo decidiste?

3. Elegir

Una vez que tienes la información, esto se reduce a una cosa: un acto de la voluntad. Elige hacerlo. Decirte a ti mismo a lo largo del día, estoy eligiendo esto porque…

4. Actuar

Actúa como mejor lo hagas, pero no dejes de hacerlo.

La acción lo es todo, ¿cómo vas a lograrlo si no empiezas?

Tu decides cómo hacerlo, de un solo golpe o gradualmente, eso te diría que depende de cada persona. Existen personas que prefiero tomar la decisión de golpe, otros no. Eso lo dejo a tu criterio.

5. Busca alguien que te apoye

Esto ayuda y muchísimo. Busca alguien que te apoye en el proceso y que cuando te ayude a recordar cuando a ti se te esté olvidando. Diría que es un apoyo moral, que te pregunte como vas, que te impulse, que te recuerde porque empezaste, etc.

6. Recuperarte del fracaso.

Inevitablemente la mayoría de la gente tendrá contratiempos. La clave es que sean contratiempos y no sea una derrota definitiva, todo depende de ti.

Si llegas a fallar, no te riendas, no lo hagas, piensa en tu objetivo, ten la mira fija, recuerda por que comenzaste y ¡Apúntalo a la experiencia!, porque hasta de las derrotas podemos sacar buenas cosas.

Di a ti mismo, a veces ganas y otras veces aprendes.

7. Recompénsate.

Porque si lo haces bien vale la pena. Entonces date premios, gustos, algo que quieras, porque estás cumpliendo tus objetivos y eliminando tus malos hábitos.

Esta lista es simple, son algunos pasos básicos para poder lograrlo.

Bob Parsons’ 16 Rules for Success

In the difficult times we are facing I found Bob’s wisdom inspiring. Here are his 16 rules for success and my own experience.

1.Get and stay out of your comfort zone

I believe that not much happens of any significance when we’re in our comfort zone.  I hear people say, «But I’m concerned about security.»  My response to that is simple: «Security is for cadavers.»

2. Never give up

Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted.  Just because what you’re doing does not seem to be working, doesn’t mean it won’t work.  It just means that it might not work the way you’re doing it.  If it was easy, everyone would be doing it, and you wouldn’t have an opportunity.

3. When you’re ready to quit, you’re closer than you think.

There’s an old Chinese saying that I just love, and I believe it is so true.  It goes like this: «The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.»

4. With regard to whatever worries you, not only accept the worst thing that could happen, but make it a point to quantify what the worst thing could be.

Very seldom will the worst consequence be anywhere near as bad as a cloud of «undefined consequences.»  My father would tell me early on, when I was struggling and losing my shirt trying to get Parsons Technology going, «Well, Robert, if it doesn’t work, they can’t eat you.»

5. Focus on what you want to have happen.

Remember that old saying, «As you think, so shall you be.»

6. Take things a day at a time.

No matter how difficult your situation is, you can get through it if you don’t look too far into the future, and focus on the present moment.  You can get through anything one day at a time.

7. Always be moving forward.

Never stop investing.  Never stop improving.  Never stop doing something new.  The moment you stop improving your organization, it starts to die.  Make it your goal to be better each and every day, in some small way.  Remember the Japanese concept of Kaizen.  Small daily improvements eventually result in huge advantages.

8. Be quick to decide.

Remember what General George S. Patton said: «A good plan violently executed today is far and away better than a perfect plan tomorrow.»

9. Measure everything of significance.

I swear this is true.  Anything that is measured and watched, improves.

10. Anything that is not managed will deteriorate.

If you want to uncover problems you don’t know about, take a few moments and look closely at the areas you haven’t examined for a while.  I guarantee you problems will be there.

11. Pay attention to your competitors, but pay more attention to what you’re doing.

When you look at your competitors, remember that everything looks perfect at a distance. Even the planet Earth, if you get far enough into space, looks like a peaceful place.

12. Never let anybody push you around.

In our society, with our laws and even playing field, you have just as much right to what you’re doing as anyone else, provided that what you’re doing is legal.

13. Never expect life to be fair.

Life isn’t fair.  You make your own breaks.  You’ll be doing good if the only meaning fair has to you, is something that you pay when you get on a bus (i.e., fare).

14. Solve your own problems.

You’ll find that by coming up with your own solutions, you’ll develop a competitive edge.  Masura Ibuka, the co-founder of SONY, said it best: «You never succeed in technology, business, or anything by following the others.»  There’s also an old Asian saying that I remind myself of frequently.  It goes like this: «A wise man keeps his own counsel.

15. Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Lighten up.  Often, at least half of what we accomplish is due to luck. None of us are in control as much as we like to think we are.

16. There’s always a reason to smile.

Find it.  After all, you’re really lucky just to be alive.  Life is short.  More and more, I agree with my little brother. He always reminds me: «We’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time!»
