Psychology of No Lesson 15 – In Order For This To Work We Have To Make A Habit
I bet there are several people who have watched at least a couple of these Psychology of No Videos and haven’t done anything. Or, if you did something it was only for a day or two, and then a period of time has gone by without you taking action. Why is that? It is because habits control us. We might be motivated by a book or a video, but if we don’t change our habits then we won’t change our behaviour.
Implementing this law is exactly like long distance running. You don’t go from having never ran before to doing a marathon on the same day. You have to build up your endurance. In the same way you have to build up your endurance to seeking out a “No”. You start by doing 1 a day, and not missing a day. Then move to 2. Then 3. Then 4 a day. Over time (30 days or so) you will have a “habit” of seeking a No. You will only see results once it has become a habit.
