Why most people fail to develop new habits!

The only way to learn a new thing is to keep doing it until it becomes old. šŸ™‚


So, why do most people fail to develop new habits?

Well! Beginning to develop a habit is thrilling! After all, you are doing something new; so you feel excitement, hope and optimism. You feel a sense of control on your destiny. You feel important. You feel liberated. You feel creative. You feel powerful. You feelā€¦ good.

But then after sometime, the newness goes away. Now, there is hardly any excitement. Itā€™s monotony. Itā€™s drudgery. Itā€™s ritual. Itā€™s repetitive. Itā€™s routinized. And though it is still challenging, the problem is that challenge is not fresh ā€“ itā€™s stale. You feelā€¦not so good.

Yes! People fail to develop new habits,Ā not because it is tough to do so, but because it is boring to do so.


Embrace boredom, embrace change.
