The FORCE of Habit

We all possess habits.

Some are good, some are bad. Others are indifferent, but many are for comfort.

Perhaps this is why we struggle to make new habits and break free of the old ones… we are just too comfortable.

Comfort is not necessarily a bad thing, yet it can force us in to situations of stagnation and boredom. It is those circumstances that lead ultimately to depression. We end up living in the past, thinking about the ‘what if’s’ rather than taking the chances in the now.

I am a lot like everyone else. I have my habits, I have my comforts, I have the chance to change them but I don’t. Much like a bird that can fly anywhere in the world but doesn’t.

Modern life has made the world soft, weak, depressed and worst of all reliant on our habits of culture.

“Never bite the hand that feeds you.”

“Be thankful for what you’ve got, some people are worse off.”

‘Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.”

Some of the most famous sayings in the world with one thing in common;

Be thankful for your comfort… Be thankful for what you have and never want for more and above all else, don’t break from your habits because they keep you safe.

Habits don’t keep you safe, they keep you in the place you’ve always been.

Is that really what YOU want?
