Most psychology books, for example, continue to teach it takes three to four weeks to break a bad habit. But is that true? Well, it usually is true when we believe it is. That
is, our beliefs influence the outcome more than the circumstances do.
The point is, then, when we want to change our habits or behavior, we
should question the popular belief that it will take time to do so.Why does it have to take time? Why not change instantly? In fact, we
could say all change should take place N.O.W. The letters "N.O.W."
stand for No Other Way. For there is No Other Way to change. After all,
if I put off changing, isn''t that procrastination? And isn''t it true
the only time I have the power to act is now? Besides, we have the
innate ability to change instantly. But little or nothing is said about
it. Therefore, we don''t think about or take advantage of it.Let''s take for example;You''re walking down a crowded sidewalk, when suddenly someone hits you
from behind with such force you are knocked to the ground. You are
angry. Very angry. You get up to see what has happened and you see a
blind man. Apparently, he stumbled into a hole in the sidewalk that you
carefully avoided earlier. As soon as you realize what happened, you
anger dissipates. It disappears in an instant! You have instantly
changed from an angry person to a calm one.You can use this principle to instantly change a negative emotion to a positive one.Well, there are other instant-changing techniques that you can use as well.
