Easy Way to Modify Unwanted Behavior…

Everything that you and I do can be broken down into simple behaviors. It doesn’t matter if you’re tall, short, black, white, red, rich, or poor. It affects us all the same. The behaviors that we most frequently engage in are the ones we typically link the most pleasure to. The ones we do our best to avoid are the ones we most link to pain. Let me explain. For example, when people choose to go on a diet it is because they link more pain to being overweight than they do pleasure. When people quit diets it’s because the pleasure of quiting the diet is greater than the pain of doing so. Often times  the hardest route to take is also the most painful (hardest) which is why some people never finish what they intended on doing in the first place.  This simple rule can be applied to just about anything you do on a daily basis. Observe your behaviors throughout the day and you’ll see what I mean.

If you want something and are lacking the motivation at times to follow through, just remember that you have the power to change that. But first you must make sure your brain is properly programmed. If you’re pain vs. pleasure is off, then you may encounter some difficulties in the long haul.

(Pain vs. Pleasure)   It can be as simple as that.

Make it a great Monday.
