When it comes to mastering your habits, knowing how to eliminate bad habits is essential.
In Season 6, "How to track negative habits," covered a few ways to kill negative habits.
In this episode, MG reviews the critical importance of replacement as a core strategy for habit elimination. The listener is challenged to focus on developing a positive habit that will replace the negative one. "You should concentrate and track the POSITIVE habit you are interested in cultivating in order to replace the negative habit." Habits do not exist in a vacuum. Thus, the classic quotation by Dutch philosopher Desiderius Erasmus, "A nail is driven out by another nail. Habit is overcome by habit." Another essential strategy is to assess your environment with respect to the bad habit. There's a reason the term "habitat" is used to describe one's surroundings. Your environment significantly impacts your behaviors. Taking control of your environment and adding impediments that make the negative habit harder to execute goes a long way to making the cultivation of the new habits easier.
