Day #21 Creative Warrior Movement 30 Day Challenge
Is practice something that you desire to do so much that it became something that you naturally have cultivated into a daily “practice”? Just an official “ritual” stamp on the activity that is already strongly rooted in your heart.
Practice is a behavior. It’s an action.
We all know that behaviors are preceded by a thought or belief about that practice.
The other option is, you heard from someone else that meditation is great, or checking your finances daily is good “practice”…then one day, potentially 5 or so days in, you say, “OH GOD, I made this “COMMITMENT” to myself, so I MUST follow through”…followed by a myriad of shame and guilt feelings on the days you don’t do it.
BEHAVIORS FADE WHEN THEY ARE NOT ALIGNED WITH OUR THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THAT PRACTICE.
Most of the time when I don’t follow through on a practice **consistently**, it’s because it’s really not something I desire to do.
Otherwise, it would be easy to stick to. It’s in my calendar, I LOVE it, thus…I’m going to do it.
Tell me your practices, and I can tell you your desires.
What are your practices?
Notice, the ones that you hold consistently, how much you love for the shear enjoyment of the practice, and the ones that have faded overtime were the “shoulds” that others laid out for you.
