Some people say it takes 21 days to form a habit. Other people say it take 66 days. And still some say it takes even longer!
I am not a scientist (as you can tell!), so I don't know the exact answer. But what I do know is that it takes a whole lot of consistency, determination, and effort.
Be consistent. Keep at it day in and day out. Repeat that habit you want to form over and over again, and eventually, it'll become second nature!
Stay determined. It's easy to do something good for a short period of time. It's much much harder to do that same thing for a long period of time. We get bored and restless, eager to see results before it's time to. That's why it's the most important to be determined to succeed. When those doubts set in, telling you that you can't, you can be strong and give it a firm I WILL!!!!
Put in effort. Life doesn't come easy, and neither do good habits (especially when they take the place of bad habits!). There will be struggle and times when you want to quit, but those are the moments when you need to push even harder. Break past that barrier! You CAN do it!!!!!
Then one day, it's won't be work any more - it's a part of who you are! That thing you used to think was the hardest to master is now something you can't live without!
It's possible!! And it may take 21 days or 66 days or 210 days, but do not give up! Stay on course! And I promise you, eventually, you won't be counting the days anymore...
