While at a regional meeting with the company that I work for the Regional President got up and gave a speech. Part of his speech dealt with changing old habits and starting new ones. The man is a natural at public speaking I will say. He's very intriguing and his words are very thoughful and motivating.
During his speech he mentioned that we have to do something 77 times before it becomes a habit or a new way of thinking. He stretched this phylosophy over several instances that would pertain to just about each one of us in the room. From brushing your teeth with your left hand instead of your right if your right handed or vice versa....... to returning every phone call by the end of each day everyday. Of course this made me think of other possibilites where I could apply this logic that would be beneficial to me.
Here's what I have on my list so far.....just random thoughts....
Returning those phone calls everyday
Learn to say NO when I really need too
Make exercise a part of my daily routine
Tell the people that I care for the most how important they are to me
Get over my fear of public speaking (I do it...because my job requires it...but it's totally shaky)
(Oh and by the way...I googled this 77 times theory and not much came up other than references to the bible.......which also made me wonder about his speech! HMMM.....underlying messages??? made up BS????? ---- Oh well...perhaps I am overthinking it!)
