Build a New Cow Path
We know that habits are created with repetition and receiving some sort of reward as a result of engaging in the activity. Even bad habits will give us a “hit” to our reward center in our brain. How many of you continue to engage in “bad habits,” habits that you know are not healthy, but that continue to make you feel good?
How many of you know that we can’t break (or is it brake) a bad habit? We have to work to replace this habit by creating a new one. Just like cows who walk their path day in and day out, this is about building a new cow path. Getting out of your rut.
So embrace the idea that you want to change your habit and start building a new one to replace the old. Build that new cow path.
