Why You Need To Start Completing Thirty Day Challenges

Well today marks the end of another thirty day challenge. This month's challenge was to write an article very day. This article marks the thirtieth article I have written on this site. Over the last few months I have completed several thirty day challenges.

Because of that I am starting to create some momentum. I am starting to look forward to what my next challenge will be. You'll find that if you make a few changes in your life and succeed, you gain the confidence you need to change more things.

If you find change hard, utilizing thirty day challenges makes change easier. If you are trying to institute change in your life, you have to start somewhere. Making changes over thirty day's is the place to start.

Start by looking at what you want to improve. Usually you'll see it either requires you stop doing something you don't want to do or that you start doing something you should be doing.

Things you want to stop doing make the best thirty day challenges because they require no effort. When I eliminated diet coke, it didn't require any actually physical effort on my part. It only required will power on my part. If you lack will power, then you'll need to analyze what would take the smallest amount of will power to overcome and make that your thirty day challenge.

Complete that thirty day challenge and you'll notice a small improvement in will power. Use that momentum and start another thirty day challenge. Creating momentum is what it's all about.

Upon successful completion of one thirty day challenge, continue that challenge forward as you start another one. As you get stronger, then make your challenges progressively harder. Do challenges that actually do require effort on your part. This is how you build slow improvement into your life and is the first path to mastery.

Because if you really want to change your life for the better, it starts with you. It starts with one small change. And it can start today.

All it takes is for you to decide. Decide today to change your life one step at a time.
