The first step in making a change in oneís life is the realization and admittance that a change needs to be made. The next step is to set up a plan for how to go about changing said behavior on a consistent, daily basis. The third step is following through with said plans.
Maxwell Maltz argued that based on his findings, it takes 21 days to create a habit. In other words, if you were to continually follow through with a new behavior for three weeks, you would find that behavior morphing from pure effort to habit. So, looking back at the three steps previously mentioned, the hardest part would be following through with those three steps for three weeks. Therefore, we at Empower challenge you to pick one thing about your lifestyle you have been meaning to change, and this month of June, set a goal to change that behavior for three weeks. Then let us know how it went and whether you think your behavioral change withstood the three week hurdle and is now more of a habit.
