You can choose. 

-       New years 

-       New beginning

-       Time to create turning points in life

-       Give you 2 keys to make any new habit stick

-       I can’t 

-       One of my least fav phrases

-       It means we aren’t capable. 

-       It means we don’t have agency, 

-       Agency is

o   Knowing what is right and wrong

o   consequences

o   Ability to choose


-       Any missing – don’t have agency

-       A lot of us have, in our heads a laundry list of things that we can’t do. 

-       I want to give you three keys to help you deal with that list and start doing the things that you want to do

-       More importantly these three things will help you become who you want to be.  

-       Because this is so important, 

-       Want it to stick

-       Not going to talk about 5 things or 10 just two

-       If you want to make a permanent change to anything in your life. 

-       New habit

-       You have to do two things

-       First, make it doable every time. 

o   Let’s say you want to be able to do 50 pushups

o   Your goal will be to just do one

o   When you are going to do it, all you have to do is one. 

o   If you want to be a runner, your goal is to put on your shoes

o   If you want to eat healthier your goal is to write what you’re eating once a day

-       Second, attach your goal to something you are already doing. 

o   50 push ups, do one every time you finish peeing.

o   Running? If you want to do it first thing in the morning, put your shoes on immediately after you turn off the alarm

o   Food journaling – right as you sit to eat, before you pick up your fork. 

-       third – create and believe in I am statements

o   Change is most effective when it is who we are not what we are doing

o   I’m a push up fanatic

o   I’m a runner

o   I’m a healthy eater

o   Don’t have to be doing it all the time, or even consistently

o   We all know a hunter – they say, “I’m a hunter” 

o   No one is like, “are you hunting right now?”

o   Have you hunted in the last week?  Prove to me you’re a hunter

o   We just take people at their word

o   The more we believe we “are” the more we are likely to act in a way that reflects that belief
