THE TRUTH ABOUT SUBCONSCIOUSNESS+

conscious-subconscious

Subconsiousness: n. unconscious impulsive brain activity while awake which influences our behavior to a large degree, especially good and/or bad habits

 

Despite popular myth that the conscious mind determines most of what we do in life the truth is that the subconscious rules supreme and makes impulsive choices based on prior experiences in our daily lives which are really our good and bad habits repeating themselves over and over again.

Very little conscious decision making is part of the lives of most humans and most of us behave on the subconscious level unless there is a crisis or severe emotional experience which changes our subconscious behavior for good or bad.

To use a bad analogy, our conscious behavior is the iceberg which we theoretically see or can control and the huge subconscious is the iceberg below the water level which we theoretically can’t see or can’t control which is the major part of our behavior and decision making process.

12 GOOD WORK HABIT TIPS!!!

Do-Good-Work

Arrive 15 minutes early at work and for important appointments and about 5 minutes early for unimportant appointments. This promotes punctuality.

Spend a little time thinking ahead and make plans to divide your work into sequential smaller parts if possible and then rush to complete them one at a time. Each completion will give you a sense of accomplishment and the motivation to move on to the next task.

Take a handful  of 3 to 5 minute breaks during the day to relieve some stress if you are feverishly working to make a deadline.

About 80% of jobs are filled by networking and not direct advertising so keep in touch with humans in your field of work which may be useful sources of employment information in the future.

Concentrate on doing what you feel you are good at and try to delegate responsibility in areas that you are not that good at.

To avoid the probability of job burnout break up a frantic pace with at least one 20 minute break and do something totally different during the day which need not be an eating break but can be.

If you begin to feel sleepy in the afternoon then do some physical in place exercise to recharge your body energy.

Always exceed your time estimates by about 10% so that if you have unforeseen problems you will still finish on time and maintain your reputation as being dependable and not under delivering on promises.

Make sure your boss is aware of your contributions to the job and if this means speaking up more at meetings then do so since it might affect your bonuses or promotion potential.

If you are not very good at remembering important things then document or write down important events or information at work which you will or may have to remember in the future.

Don’t gossip

If you need something important to do your work successfully don’t be afraid to ask for it and tell management what you need and why.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PROGRESS+

images (1)

Progress: n. improvement and/or growth and/or development which is a successful movement(s) towards a goal(s)

Are you making any progress? You may be half way there on your goal to reach a physical destination or half way through medical school. In either a simple or complicated goal you can usually assess how far you are in reaching it or how much progress you are making towards it.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try you may not be able to reach a goal such as getting a job promotion but usually by making adjustments or gaining more knowledge or skills you can generally reach the goal unless it is a totally unrealistic one and depends on you having some basic talent which you lack.

Not everyone wants to progress in life, especially if they are happy with what they have but many humans have a desire to improve or experience new adventures and call it progress. We all progress towards eventual death so it is wise to ask yourself from time to time-Am I happy with the progress which I am making or should I make some minor or major adjustments in my progress?

Sometimes making progress is simply a matter of eliminating bad habits or replacing them with good habits. Stop eating unhealthy food, stop smoking, stop bad relationships, and quit a bad job. Put in positive terms this may mean eating more organic food, replacing smoking with healthy snacks, refreshments, or meditation, finding better friends or a new significant other, and landing a better job.

Sometimes progress means eliminating barriers or working around them. Your barriers may be an inadequate education, a bad personality, few useful skills, or humans in positions which you would want to be in. You can improve on your personal barriers or eliminate them to some extent but if human barriers are your problem then you may not be able to eliminate them or work around them.

Other humans can greatly impede your progress and if you can’t avoid them or drop them for better ones then you may have to deal with them until they leave or go elsewhere. Who you know is sometimes more important than what you know so try to get to know better humans with good contacts who can potentially help you in the future.

There are short duration goals and long duration goals and the smart humans try to make progress in both by spending some time working on a daily or regular basis focusing on long duration goals too. Not many want to seriously work on long duration goals but if you do then you will probably be one who will have some genuine true successes in their lives which will make the journey of life even more satisfying.

Live for today only and you may be derailed from your path abruptly one day and be at a loss of what to do next. Live for today and tomorrow and you will still have a destination to go to if you get derailed from your current normal path in life.

The key to making real progress in life is to live life in the present but to make some future plans or putting in some current effort for future goal achievement.

Just moving forward is making progress but HOW you move forward or progress is a very important question which you should try answering yourself since there are so many ways of doing so.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADDICTIONS+

Cycle-of-Addiction1

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

We are all addicted to good and bad habits and grey ones which are good or bad depending on the circumstances.

Human nature is basically doing things impulsively or habitually in a predictable routine way because we don’t have to always stop ourselves and ask- is what I am doing right or wrong?

Doing something bad once in a while will usually not doom you to a life of debauchery or ruin an otherwise good reputation and you may even get some satisfaction out of doing so.  A little speeding on the highway, occasional arguing, occasional criticizing, some jealousy, a little pornography, a little gambling, and getting drunk once in a while will usually not adversely affect your life unless it becomes a compulsion or it is repeated much too frequently.

Compulsive eating, drinking, drug taking, gambling, pornography, lust, masturbation, arguing,  complaining, criticizing, jealousy, envy, abuse, talking, depression, laziness, procrastination, etc. can lead to severe problems in life and it is basically your responsibility to realize that what you are doing is getting out of control and causing you much unhappiness.

Chemical addictions can be devastating but many of your dysfunctional emotional addictions or personality flaws can also cause many problems and ultimate unhappiness.

If you can afford the time and money then rehab may be a solution to your drug addiction and it always helps to have supportive friends and family. If you have bad friends and bad family then unfortunately a near death experience may be the fear which shocks you into finally doing something about your terrible addiction on your own.

After rehab the worst thing that you can possibly do is to go back to the same environment and addicted friends who will trigger your need for the drug all over again and cause you to relapse. Change your living quarters and drop your addicted friends and try to find better ones if at all possible if you truly want a fresh new start in life.

Most bad addictions are not life threatening and the key to reducing their bad influence on your life is to gradually replace them with good addictions or good habits which you enjoy doing. Search my blog under bad habits and good habits because the first key to solving an addiction is to realize that you have a bad habit and the next step is to start replacing it with one or more good habits which you enjoy doing.

Addictions to immorality are the worst. If you are addicted to lying, stealing, and adultery then your social reputation will be in the toilet and you may begin to feel that the world is against you at every turn and unhappiness will cling to you like a parasite.

Your delusional ego may be telling you that there is no need for improvement in your life. Do some reading and research and find out whether this is truly the case.

Going through life blinded by your selfish ego is not a sure way to successful living so try to make the best of your moments on this precious earth. Enjoy life to the fullest with true selfawareness gotten from wise humans who have lived life and have gone through the same shit that you are going through successfully.

LIST OF 13 IMPORTANT BAD HABITS AND GOOD ONES TO REPLACE THEM WITH!!!

all-bad-habits-start-slowly-zig-ziglar

Ideally you should quit cold turkey on bad habits, especially the very bad ones, but unfortunately you are deriving some satisfaction from them and the best realistic alternative is to cut back on them or spend less time on them and to gradually replace them with good habits.

Realize that most bad habits are not a question of yes or no or of doing them or not doing them. The real understanding and truth is that you should have as little of the bad habit in your life as possible. A little of the bad habit does not necessarily have terrible bad consequences and sometimes even a moderate dose of the bad habit is perfectly understandable and acceptable.

 

BAD HABIT: Eating too much of the wrong food:

GOOD HABIT: Eat and drink only when hungry or thirsty even if this means once a day. Start gradually replacing or adding varied organic food to your meals.

If you snack during the day or after work then try snacking on nuts, seeds, fruit, vegies, and meat jerky.

Don’t be afraid to experiment with healthy foods. If you don’t like the taste or it seems tasteless then add your favorite spices, dips, or dressings. Flavorings which you like the taste of will make almost anything healthy which you eat just as satisfying as the overly processed food and fast food which you are used to eating.

If you are hooked on sweet food then try replacing it with sweet natural fruits whenever the urge for sweet food arises. Eating chocolate once in a while or any sweet treat once in a while is not a serious health offense.

 

BAD HABIT: Talking too much

GOOD HABIT: Spend less time less frequently talking to gabby humans. Talk mostly to humans who are important in your life and spend very little time on the rest.

Learn to talk briefly, concisely, and to the point and try to listen more and talk less. Don’t be afraid to interrupt a conversation which is becoming too boring or change the subject to something more interesting.

Social media is the same thing. Limit your frequent communications to humans who are important in your life and only respond to others if they have something new or interesting which they are trying to share.

 

BAD HABIT: Going into debt or impulsive and excessive shopping

GOOD HABIT: Set aside or save about 10% of your monthly income for emergencies such as car repairs, home repairs, medical emergencies, etc. so you don’t have to go into debt.

Before you buy make sure it is something you need and not just want. Ask. Can I do without it for a week or month? If the answer is yes then don’t buy it.

Make lists of things to buy and then don’t do any impulse buying but stick to the items on your list to buy.

Check the things that you have already bought to see if they will satisfy your need to buy something. You may be surprised by how much hoarded items of clothing and kitchen items you have which can be reused again.

Learn to budget your money or break it down into categories and try not to overspend in the category on a monthly basis. If you have allocated a specific money amount for entertainment per month then try not to exceed that limit.

Try to remember the unit prices of grocery food and try to comparison shop always before making up your mind to purchase an item. Try to get the best deal or best value per price paid.

For organic food price should not be an issue because tasty organic food is always the best buy. You will pay more but usually you will eat less off it and the long duration value to your good health is priceless.

 

BAD HABIT: Being stuck in a bad job

GOOD HABIT: Switch to another employer with the same job or learn new skills and knowledge necessary for a new and better job.

 

BAD HABIT: Not sleeping enough

GOOD HABIT: Plan your sleep time so you almost always get 8 or 9 hours of sleep. Prepare for sleep by winding down before sleep with sex, calming music, meditation, a boring show, or soothing shower or bubble bath.

 

BAD HABIT: Smoking too much

GOOD HABIT: Switch to e-cigarettes or smoking a pipe or cigars or don’t inhale the cigarette smoke when you do smoke. You can also try meditation or exercise each time you have an urge to smoke and remind yourself mentally how bad smoking is for your health and well being.

 

BAD HABIT: Watching TV or gaming too much

GOOD HABIT: Be selective in what you watch and only watch something which you really like. Limit your viewing or playing time to not more than about an hour a day. Instead of TV go on the internet and try learning something new and hopefully interesting and useful.

If you are addicted to one genre such as sports then try expanding your interest into other areas such as organic gardening, landscaping, wood or metal working, 3D printing, house repairs, investment, and cars and try becoming an amateur expert on the subject.

 

BAD HABIT: Drinking alcohol too much

GOOD HABIT: Drink a wide variety of beers or low alcohol content drinks  and try drinking for the taste of it and not the buzz.

 

BAD HABIT: Too many medicines or drugs

GOOD HABIT: Start eating healthy with as much organic food as possible, drink healthy with unsweetened drinks, and get some moderate exercise.

Your body will eventually try to cure itself having the right natural chemicals and movement.

Before popping a pain pill try to discover the cause. Is it is too much stress, overwork, or doing the same thing for too long? You will frequently discover what to avoid or do differently the next time and it is far better than popping an instant cure pill which doesn’t cure anything but just masks the symptoms and may even make the situation worse with bad side effects ready for more pill “cures”.

Start replacing medications with homeopathic remedies and see if they have fewer side effects which artificial drugs are notorious for.

If you are suffering from depression or other mental problems then the solution is frequently a change in lifestyle. New and better friends and not mind altering psychiatric drugs with terrible side effects which often make the situation worse. Pills almost never address the true cause of your problems which is frequently the shitty eating and drinking, and the shitty environment and lifestyle that you are living in.

 

BAD HABIT: Living in a messy environment

GOOD HABIT: Clean up regularly and put back some order in your life. It is frequently true that a messy environment leads to a messy disorganized problem filled life.

 

BAD HABIT: Associating or interacting with bad, depressed, unhappy, pessimistic, and badly addicted friends

GOOD HABIT: Start looking for and start replacing those bad friends with optimistic, happy, and smart friends but remember that you too will have to improve yourself in the process and change to more optimism, happiness, and smartness if you want to keep those new good friends in your circle of acquaintances for longer than a day.

 

BAD HABIT:  Too much pornography 

GOOD HABIT: A sexual relationship with a significant other should be your goal. Too much pornography will ruin healthy relationships with a significant other with unrealistic sexual expectations.  The good habit is a healthy real sexual relationship with a human.

 

BAD HABIT: Too much gambling

GOOD HABIT: The gambling should be for fun and not profit. Trying to make a living from gambling is only possible for some very talented clever experts with outstanding memories who know how to beat house odds and not for those that believe gambling is just a matter of good luck or being lucky with the odds heavily against you.

 

CONCLUSION:

Many of us eventually get stuck in a rut of old bad habits which lead to a rather boring hopeless depressing situation. The key to getting out of such ruts in the first place is to maintain an active curiosity and desire to learn new things and have new experiences rather regularly.

If you have an interesting life thinking about many things, experiencing them, and keeping up to date with your knowledge then you will make an interesting conversationalist with humans that you meet. You will frequently have something in common to share or talk about.

When you stop trying to improve yourself then you begin to die as a human emotionally and sometimes even physically. Expand your intellectual horizons beyond the brainwashing media and poor role model celebrities. Do research on your own and discover some interesting topics to think and talk about. Yes, you probably will need a dictionary at first to get used to the buzzwords but once you learn what they mean the rest is rather easy.

I am interested in almost everything outside of sports and religion and have an opinion or two about almost everything. I have blogged for about two years now and have never had a dull moment even though I was on the computer researching and writing sometimes as many as 12 hours a day. Yes, I have a life outside of blogging but my blogging has helped make me a wiser man in everyday life too. Sharing this lifetime of useful knowledge is one of my ongoing passions. Enjoy!

THE TRUTH ABOUT HABITS***

good-habits

Habit: n. an action(s) done so frequently by an animal that it becomes a relatively frequent largely impulsive behavior(s)

Some general habits are vital such as eating, drinking, walking, communicating, and sleeping. What you eat, drink, and communicate is subject to some change so you can improve those sub habits and exclude any bad ones which you may have.

Most habits are rather impulsive and not easily changeable and an awareness of what habits you have is the first step towards improving them if that is what you want to do.

To change habits you can decrease or increase the time spent on them, you can change the composition of the habits, and you can exclude habits or introduce new ones.

Bad habits are difficult to change since you are probably getting some satisfaction out of them so first decreasing the time spent on them is frequently a wise choice. Totally and quickly excluding a bad habit may be necessary in a crisis situation but the smart thing to do is to gradually reduce the time spent on a bad habit.

What do you replace the bad habit with? A good habit which may mean increasing the time spent on a good habit or introducing a new good habit to replace some or all of the old bad habit.

Prioritizing your goals in life will help you to decide what you want to do more of and what you would like to gradually decrease in your life.

While addictive bad habits like gambling, pornography, promiscuity, impulsive excessive shopping, drugs, and alcohol need serious change your most important priority is healthy eating and drinking and that means including more and more organic food and drink into your daily habits. Get plenty of sleep and you are well on your way to a healthy body which is the foundation of a healthy mind too.

To improve the health of your mind and keep it from stagnating with old habitual thoughts learn new useful skills and new useful knowledge and that means spending time researching and reading something useful as frequently as possible.

Bad friends and bad relationships are also bad habits which can decrease your health and happiness so consider starting to decrease the time spent with them. If you have bad relationships with offspring and spouse and you are mostly to blame for this situation then seriously try to change your behavior or call it quits and get a divorce and exit the family with your unchanging bad personality.

Good and bad habits are your lifestyle. The habits or the repetitive things which you do in life will change some even if you don’t plan it that way and it is your responsibility to try and make good habits dominate more of your lifestyle when changes are made.

Good habits are just as addictive as bad habits so try to stay addicted to the good ones for greater health and happiness in your life.

7 MISTAKES HUMANS MAKE WHEN CHANGING TO BETTER BEHAVIORS!!!

tumblr_n957nj9K2k1sxsd9vo1_500

It is a mistake to assume that tremendous will power over a long duration will change bad behavior.

You may have all the selfcontrol and determination in the world but if you are going to use will power alone to change to healthier eating habits then you won’t know where to start or put all that will power. You need to do some serious thinking, research, and planning before you can apply any will power to the gradual small steps which you will have to make to start on your road to healthier eating.

It is a mistake to make huge overnight changes instead of gradual steps or changes.

Suddenly overnight buying only organic food and drinks and preparing all the food at home for consumption at work and at home will probably not work because it is too great a shock to your system and you will become very confused about how and when to prepare the food.

It is much smarter to gradually introduce organic snacks into your daily routine and only gradually increase the quantity of the organic food which you add to or replace your regular eating habits with. You enjoy the taste of most of the food which you consume now and chances are it will take a relatively long time to make organic food eating as tasty and desirable in your life.

There is nothing more demotivating than having to eat organic food which sometimes doesn’t taste very good without some sauce or flavoring and forcing yourself to abandon the good tasting overly processed food which you are now probably eating.

It is a mistake to surround yourself with bad role models and an environment which reinforces the bad behaviors which you are trying to change.

If most of the humans which you associate with have unhealthy eating habits and you love to frequent fast food places and supermarkets which don’t have organic produce then the chances of changing to healthy eating habits is rather slim. You must try to surround yourself with external motivators and they are humans who are eating healthy and establishments where healthy food is sold.

It is a mistake to go cold turkey on bad behaviors but better to start some good behaviors which will gradually push out or reduce the time spent on the bad behaviors.

Gradually adding more organic food to your diet will slowly push out the overly processed food which you are eating but that doesn’t mean that you have to totally abandon processed food or can’t have any tasty deserts or no fast food at all.

It is a mistake to think that rationally knowing what to do and where to go will automatically lead to doing those things and going to places to get what you may want or need.

You may have found out which places sell organic food but don’t take the necessary next step in stocking up on some or actually buying some. Old shopping habits and eating habits are hard to change, especially if you find out that it will take a half an hour extra time to travel to an organic food place. You just may be too set in your ways or too lazy to make the extra effort needed to stock up on supplies and prefer eating and shopping at your regular place just 5 or 10 minutes away.

It is a mistake to assume that a new better behavior will be forever.

You may be eating an organic apple as a snack three times a week but this won’t last forever because you will tire of the snack and maybe want to change to an organic banana or pear instead. The beauty is that even good habits can become boring but you can usually replace them with other good habits as the need arises.

It is a mistake to assume that changing behavior is difficult or even impossible.

When you are thirsty then drink. When you are hungry then eat. To make sure that you have something to eat or drink that is healthy for you then consider a tote bag or lunch container filled with good healthy food and drink. Then when you are thirsty or hungry instantly quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger in a healthy way.

CONCLUSION:

An addiction to unhealthy eating can be replaced with an addiction to healthy eating or and addiction to both healthy and unhealthy food which is the compromise most are capable of in this society which is overly biased towards unhealthy triggers enticing us to eat unhealthy in almost every corner of existence.

If you are addicted to gambling, pornography, impulsive shopping, alcohol and drugs then you will have a harder time of replacing those bad addictive habits with new addictive good hobbies and pastimes. It is not impossible once you find out exactly which new hobbies and pastimes would interest you enough to want to commit some time to doing them to some extent for starters.

Of course the smartest thing to do would be to increase your job skills by learning new useful skills and knowledge but unfortunately this will indeed take much selfcontrol and determination since the learning process is not very rewarding for most of us and we would prefer to usually do something else and take the easy way out and do nothing.

FIND AND PRACTICE GOOD HABITS TO REPLACE OR DECREASE THE BAD ONES!!!

good-habits

We all have many bad habits which have become part of our everyday lives and if we eliminate them from our lives then what do we replace them with to fill the void? Replace them partially or totally with good habits.

In a nutshell the good habits are

eating and drinking healthy,

moderately exercising or moving around physically,

financial responsibility,

working smart and hard,

having good relationships with important humans in your life,

improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

and taking time out to think about the priorities or goals in your life and making small adjustments as needed or drastically changing the priorities in an emergency or crisis situation.

In a nutshell the bad habits are

eating and drinking unhealthy,

not exercising or moving around much,

financial irresponsibility,

working stupidly or doing the minimum amount of work,

having bad relationships with important humans in your life,

not improving yourself with new useful knowledge and skills,

not taking time out to think about and readjust the priorities or goals in your life,

not being prepared for emergency or crisis situations,

and being trapped in bad addictive chemical behaviors.

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

Addictions are usually thought of as addictions to a chemical substance frequently accompanied by severe withdrawal symptoms but processed food and drinks are also filled with lopsided chemicals some of which humans are addicted to such as sugar, caffeine, and carbohydrates. The withdrawal symptoms are sometimes increased anxiety and cravings for the food or drink.

I like to think of important bad habits as addictions to important bad behaviors with withdrawal symptoms similar to food and drink or noticeable increases in anxiety or craving for the bad behavior. The truth is that good habits are also addictions which you can develop a craving for. The choice is yours. Which addictions do you want in your life?

Sexual and gambling addictions or compulsions can do much harm to their addicts who definitely develop cravings for the bad behavior habits when isolated from them. Not everyone gets addicted to compulsive shopping, promiscuity, pornography, or gambling so if one does it a little or sometimes does some in moderation then it can’t be considered to be an addiction or bad behavior all the time or in every instance.

In a crisis situation you may have to go cold turkey or exclude the bad habit completely from your life. Realistically most bad habits are eliminated or reduced in small steps with good habits eventually getting lengthier time wise and more frequent and gradually replacing the old bad habits.

If you are eating unhealthy then start introducing tasty healthy organic snacks and eventually tasty healthy organic ingredients into your meals. Even organic food and drinks are not always tasty so feel free to add your own spices and sugar free sauces to the organic food and drink to suit your taste.

Keep gradually increasing the frequency and quantity of the organic food and drink. Eventually the tasty healthy organic food and drink will replace much of the unhealthy food and drink in your life if you unrelentingly persist in your goal of more healthy eating.

Sure society is so structured that becoming an organic fanatic is not only expensive but hard to do, especially with meat, and if you indulge in unhealthy eating once in a while then don’t feel guilty about it because it will not kill you or ruin your health dramatically.

Unfortunately the herd instinct or doing what others around you are doing is a very compelling force and it is very hard to overcome. This is why you should seriously consider finding new best friends with more good habits which you hope to get and leave behind your old best friends with the old bad habits which you have and want to get rid of.

If your best friends eat unhealthy, don’t exercise, are financially irresponsible, don’t like to work, have bad relationships with important humans, and have severe chemical or behavioral addictions or compulsions then the chances are that you will never rid yourself or decrease those bad habits in your life.

Birds of a feather tend to flock together and if you find yourself a member of a group of humans addicted to many bad habits then the situation for improvement is hopeless unless you miraculously become an independent selfmotivated good habit fanatic and live a life of relative seclusion or isolation.

Many humans have large egos and feel that they have almost no bad habits to get rid of. Knowing what a bad habit is or selfawareness is the first step on the road to a better you!!!!!!

Even after selfawareness you may feel that you are getting too much pleasure or satisfaction from your bad habits to want to change them. That is why the freedom to choose is such a heavy personal responsibility for all adult humans and many choose wrongly in the short duration and end up in misery in the long duration with bad health, financial bankruptcy, bad relationships, a bad lifestyle, and sometimes even death.

All good and bad habits start in childhood so you are truly at an unfair or unjust advantage if you have parents, relatives, childhood friends, and teachers with many good habits who serve as good role models.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ADDICTION

addiction_cycle1

Addiction: n. compulsively desiring a subset(s)

You can be addicted to drinking soda, coffee, etc., food, shopping, exercising, sex, legal and illegal drugs and alcohol, smoking, pornography, gambling, lying, reading, hand washing, and hundreds of other compulsive bad habits which can devastate your life or make it very dysfunctional. Some of these addictions are so pleasurable that only the fear of death or financial ruin will eventually cause you to stop them.

If you are addicted to a chemical substance with severe withdrawal symptoms and desperately want to quit then you may have to consult a professional doctor who can minimize the withdrawal symptoms and place you in a rehab center if you can afford it. Addictive chemical habits can’t change overnight and relapses are very common even with professional help.

The best advice to your offspring is don’t get addicted in the first place and avoid all the guilt, cravings, and eventual crises which frequently follow a series of temporary addictive highs.

The best way to cure addictions is to replace them with good habits that you enjoy doing but be aware that acquiring a good pleasurable habit may take more than two months of self-motivated practice or performance to make it a permanent part of your life.

Destroying an addiction on your own is almost impossible to do in many cases and the best advice is to get a professional, family, close good friends, a support group or all four to motivate you to quit your addiction. If you have supportive caring humans to help you break an addiction then the probability that you will succeed greatly increases.

THE TRUTH ABOUT DESIRE

Desires

Desire: v. to mentally sense a need to achieve a goal(s) and frequently making that future achievement more probable and it originates in the survival instinct and search for pleasure

Most of us lead a life filled with desires to eat, drink, talk, have sex, share experiences, possess things, do things, believe things, have a family, get high, hope for some fame and fortune, avoid pain and sorrow, and generally want to be happy.

Desires motivate us to act in certain ways which frequently become good and/or bad habits in adulthood which we frequently have to live with for a lifetime. Without desires our lives would come to a screeching halt, we would sink into devastating depression, or we would not want to do anything.

When your desires stop you also probably stop living or if you have few desires left in life then you probably live a very boring life just eating and drinking and watching TV.

To avoid a boring life you must come up with new desires which motivate you to do something different from your daily boring routine but few are able to make their lives more interesting because their boring lifestyle has become a bad habit which is hard to break or hard to replace with good habits.

Most of us live with impulsive desires in adulthood which create some predictability in our lives but impulse can also be a trap from which it is hard to escape if we would like some better results in our lives.

If your old desires are generally good desires then you will not be in a constant battle with the bad effects of your bad desires and your life should generally be better led. If you are stuck with bad desires then your life may be filled with failure, disappointment, and bad consequences.

Know yourself or be aware of your conscious and unconscious good and bad desires. What you do do may be a good or bad habit which you are getting some satisfaction from.

What you don’t do is harder to figure out because you may be avoiding something to avoid pain, embarrassment, failure, or a blow to your ego which are all unconscious reasons for not doing something or not behaving a certain way.

What generally motivates our desires is to get pleasure and avoid pain. Frequently our pleasurable senses associated with a bad habit may lead to pain or failure which we chose to ignore because seeking immediate pleasure overrides the pain which we will suffer in the future as a result of the short duration pleasure which we get.

Addictions to bad habits like gambling, pornography, impulsive shopping, and drugs gives us immediate pleasure and we just don’t make the logical connection with the bad consequences which result from the addiction and don’t make the smart necessary avoidance adjustments in our behavior.

Bad pleasurable desires are frequently a trap from which few of us escape unless the bad consequences become too much to bear or we crash and burn and barely escape with our lives.

Creating good desires in childhood leads to good habits in adulthood and if you grow up with too many bad desires then your adulthood will be filled with many bad habits causing you much enduring pain and sorrow.

THE “SHOCKING” REAL TRUTH ABOUT HAPPINESS

Summer-happiness-photo

Science has proven that if you are doing things which feel pleasurable then you are happy in the moment. If you have bad behaviors which are giving you pleasure while you are doing them then you are happy doing them. The only problem is that your bad behavior will frequently result in many bad consequences which will ultimately add more unhappiness to your life and you should really be asking one question-

Should I FORCE myself to change my bad habits so that the frequency and duration of the bad consequences or unhappy moments decreases??? Another way of saying this is- Should I try to increase the times that I am happy and increase the length of time that I am happy every, day, week, month, or year by eliminating as many bad unhappy moments and bad unhappy consequences as possible?

A perfect example is a HAPPY panhandler or beggar. Give him or her enough free money during the day which they don’t have to work for and they will happily spend it on alcohol, drugs, and some food and drink at the end of the day. They will consume it and be relatively happy with life. If they don’t get any money during the day then they will have an unhappy day but WILL probably look forward to the next day or change their panhandling to another location where they hope to get lucky again. Nature loves efficiency and a beggar can be very efficient at surviving and not pollute his or her environment.

If you want to have a higher frequency of happy moments and want them to last longer then you will have to FORCE yourself to change some of your daily bad habits and replace them with better ones which don’t have as many bad consequences or unhappy moments.

Sure, most of us are conditioned to believe that more money, good friends, a nice family, nice possessions, and exciting pastimes will give us more happiness in our lives but that means more responsibility, hard work to earn the money needed, DIFFICULT learning of good job and good social skills, and having some time left over to enjoy the exciting pastimes which make you very happy.

It is a fact of life that the level of happiness for the rich is about the same as for the middle class and only the very poor are really very depressed and unhappy if they are living from paycheck to paycheck without a saved up a reserve for emergency situations such as unexpected medical expenses, car repairs, and appliance breakdowns. Add to this dysfunctional immoral lifestyles, alcohol or drug dependencies, bad social skills, a bad education and you have some very unhappy poor people living in an almost constant state of emotional and physical stress or crisis.

CONCLUSION:

If you are unhappy then you will have to analyze yourself OR know thyself. Identify the bad habits which are making you unhappy or giving you so many moments of unhappiness in life. Start excluding your little bad habits first to reassure yourself that you can really do something about your situation which should never seem hopeless. With lifelong optimism and constant research proceed to tackle or forcefully remove with mental toughness the major sources of your unhappiness or the bad habits which are causing some terribly bad consequences in your life. Replace your bad habits with better ones but be forewarned that this may frequently take a month or so of self-motivated constant hard mental and even physical effort.

I have written a truthful evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME & MONEY which will help you if you really don’t know where to start and are not very good at self-analysis. Another recommended book of mine is HOW TO SAVE MONEY which is a must read if you are heavy in credit card debt due to your impulsive shopping bad habits. If you are unhappy with your love life or family life I have evergreen books which will help you solve those problems too-LOVEALL and MODERN PARENTING.

THE TRULY SUCCESSFUL LIFE IS MAKING AND ACHIEVING MORE AND BETTER GOALS

images (3)

We all would like to be happy and feel that we are being successful in life. Few realize that this means making and achieving more and better goals.

Making goals is the hardest part because most of us are trapped in our old and frequently bad habits or old goals which we repeat over and over again and don’t make any progress in life.

The key to making sometimes new and better goals is to research your present activities and determine if they are going to lead to progress in your life or just the same old daily routine. If you find that you are operating in a dead end with little hope for progress in the future then you should change something in your daily routine so that you can escape or improve your circumstances.

This frequently means improving your knowledge and skills through further research and education and making new contacts with humans who can potentially connect you with better opportunities.

Achieving a necessary change in your daily routine will require much optimistic self-motivation which means doing something new and useful and making it part of your daily routine. You can start by prioritizing your goals and rescheduling your time to concentrate on what you feel is most important in your life and ignoring or excluding or reducing the bad or trivial habits in your life.

A better goal is frequently developing a better habit or doing an activity which will improve your life and not letting your life stagnate in old fruitless frequently boring repetitive activities.

The foundation for progress or making and achieving new goals is an insatiable curiosity and desire to learn new skills and new knowledge.

Finally there are distant or ultimate goals which can be achieved by making many goals along the way and you should educate yourself on what these intermediate goals are or should be if you want to reach your ultimate realistic goal.

CONCLUSION:

The successful life is struggling to eliminate the bad habits and old goals which you are reliving and trying to replace them with better habits or new goals which you try to pursue on a daily basis.

My evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY will show you in detail how you can make and achieve sometimes new and better goals or improve the goals which you are working on in the present.

jjwp348

HOW DO YOU EXCLUDE A BAD HABIT?

  1. PRIORITIZE YOUR BAD HABITS AND TRY TO CHANGE THE LEAST BAD ONES FIRST
  2.  DECREASE THE BAD HABIT’S SIZE
  3.  DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME USED ON THE BAD HABIT
  4.  DECREASE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT
  5. REPLACE PART OR ALL OF THE BAD HABIT WITH A GOOD HABIT AND/OR MANY SMALL GOOD HABITS. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD HABITS WHICH WILL REPLACE THE BAD ONES SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR GOOD HABITS ARE IF YOU HAVE ANY.
  6. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS WHICH WILL HAPPEN IF YOU EXCLUDE THE BAD HABITS. THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS THAT YOU WILL SAVE TIME AND ENERGY AND MONEY WHICH YOU WASTE ON THE BAD HABIT!!!
  7. REPEAT YOUR GOOD HABITS MORE FREQUENTLY AND THE OLD BAD HABITS WILL NOT RETURN AS SPEEDILY IF AT ALL BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOUR GOOD HABIT REPLACEMENTS ARE NOT GOING TO COST YOU MORE MONEY THAN THE OLD ONES DID!!!!!!
  8. A LIST OF GOOD HABITS TO CHOOSE FROM.

TRY TO CHANGE YOUR SMALLEST BAD HABITS FIRST AND IF YOU SUCCEED YOU WILL HAVE THE COURAGE TO TRY AND EXCLUDE THE WORST BAD HABITS WHICH YOU THINK YOU HAVE.

IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH AND TALK TOO MUCH ON THE PHONE OR HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS TOO MUCH IN PERSON OR ON THE INTERNET AND IMPULSE SHOP TOO MUCH START BY CUTTING BACK ON TALKING ON THE PHONE OR HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS FIRST WHICH IS THE EASIEST BAD HABIT TO TRY AND DECREASE IN SIZE AND FREQUENCY. EXCLUDE TOO MUCH IMPULSE SHOPPING NEXT AND DECREASE EATING TOO MUCH LAST.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE SIZE OF A HABIT SPACIALLY BY USING LESS OF WHAT IS PART OF YOUR BAD HABIT. IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF FOOD WHICH YOU PUT ON THE PLATE OR EAT HALF OF THE FAST FOOD WHICH YOU ORDER.

IF YOU SMOKE TOO MUCH TAKE HALF OF THE CIGARETTES OUT OF THE PACK AND ONLY SMOKE WHAT IS IN THE PACK FOR THE WHOLE DAY.

IF YOU ARE A 2 PACK A DAY SMOKER DECREASE TO 1 PACK A DAY. IF YOU DRINK LARGE CUPS OF COFFEE OR SODA DECREASE THAT TO DRINKING A SMALL SIZE CUP OF COFFEE OR SODA.

DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME MEANS THAT YOU USE LESS TIME ON A BAD ACTIVITY OR BAD HABIT.

IF YOU SPEND 20 MINUTES EATING A MEAL STOP AFTER 10 MINUTES AND DON’T EAT ANY MORE.

IF YOU SPEND 10 MINUTES ON AVERAGE TALKING TO FRIENDS DECREASE THAT TO 5 MINUTES OF TALKING. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH DECREASE THE TIME THAT YOU WATCH A PROGRAM AND MAYBE EVEN STOP WATCHING A HALF HOUR PROGRAM AFTER THE FIRST 15 MINUTES. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TOO MUCH SPORTING ACTIVITY DECREASE THE TIME ON WATCHING SPORTS TOO.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT SO THAT INSTEAD OF GOING ONCE A WEEK TO A MOVIE GO ONLY ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU EAT THREE TIMES A DAY AND DRINK 6 TIMES A DAY DECREASE THE FREQUENCY BY A THIRD AND ONLY EAT ONCE A DAY AND DRINK ONLY TWICE A DAY.

IF YOU GO TO BARS ONCE EVERY WEEK CUT DECREASE THE FREQUENCY TO ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU SMOKE ONCE EVERY 15 MINUTES DECREASE THAT TO SMOKING ONLY ONE EVERY HALF HOUR AND YOU HAVE DECREASED THE SMOKING FREQUENCY BY A HALF.

YOU CAN REPLACE PART OF A BAD HABIT WITH SMALLER GOOD ONES. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH TAKE TIME OFF AND GO ON THE INTERNET FOR ENTERTAINMENT FOR HALF THE TIME AND DON’T WATCH YOUR LEAST FAVORITE SHOWS ON TV ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

FIND OTHER INTERESTING ACTIVITIES OR GOOD HABITS WHICH YOU HAVE AND INSERT THEM INTO A BAD HABIT TO START BREAKING IT UP A BIT. YOU CAN TRY GOING COLD TURKEY AND STOPPING THE BAD HABIT ENTIRELY BUT THEN TRY TO REPLACE THE TIME USED ON IT WITH ONE OF YOUR GOOD HABITS AND DO THEM INSTEAD.

AFTER HAVING MADE A LIST OF ALL YOUR GOOD HABITS MAKE SURE THAT YOU REPEAT THEM AS FREQUENTLY AS YOU CAN IN YOUR LIFE SO THE BAD HABITS WILL NOT SUCCEED IN SEEPING BACK INTO YOUR BETTER LIFE!!!
