One thing I've learned up to this point in life is that the mind has a memory. And it's damn smart; it "subconsciously" recognizes patterns.
Once the patterns become a habit, it's hard to stop. It requires extra mental strength to break the habit.
"Starting from small, it becomes big."
- Starting with white lies, repeatedly, you become a compulsive liar.
- Starting with shoplifting a lipstick, repeatedly, you become a thief.
- Starting with faking documents, repeatedly, you can become a white collar criminal.
- Starting with being dishonest, repeatedly, you become a cheater.
At the same time...
- Starting with exercising at least three times a week, repeatedly, you become fit.
- Starting with eating healthy every day, repeatedly, you become well and healthy.
- Starting with walking with your back straight, repeatedly, you have an elegant posture.
- Starting with smiling and being positive, you become a happy person to be around inside and out and attract people with the same energy to you.
- Starting with giving unused clothes and loose change to the homeless, repeatedly, you become empathetic and giving.
- Starting with sharing things with others, repeatedly, you become generous.
- Starting with only doing things that align with your core values, repeatedly, you are a person of meaningful values.
- Starting with reading, repeatedly, you become addicted to learning.
- Starting with making sure you get what you need done for the day, repeatedly, you are always on top of everything.
- Starting with being focused, each task at a time, repeatedly, you can easily get into the flow and be productive.
- Starting with thinking outside the box, repeatedly, you become extremely creative.
- Starting with getting out of your comfort zone, repeatedly, you become confident and fearless.
- Starting with telling yourself what you want to achieve in life, repeatedly, you will get there.
- Starting with just getting it started, repeatedly, anything you want to be and do, you can be and do.
