“When patterns are broken, new world emerge.” Tuli Kupperburg

A great truth – we can’t change anything unless we are willing to break a pattern. Whatever we accept and believe determines what we achieve.

I remember when my mom stopped smoking. She was used to waking up each morning and we would bring her the first cup of coffee and she would smoke a cigerette before she even got out of bed. When she stopped smoking that was the only time of the day she had a hard time, because she associated that cup of coffee with the first cigarette. She had to break the pattern by getting out of bed and getting her cup of coffee in the kitchen, so that she wouldn’t crave that first cigarette.

If you have a habit that you would like to change, you need to change the pattern around the habit in order to achieve success. Create a new pattern to replace the old one. Don’t let the baggage around old beliefs and patterns that have outlived their usefulness control your future.

You are in charge. Remember that while change is not easy; it is really, really simple!
