Inevitably, there will be a time when you set out to do something positive, but find yourself sliding back into old habits. Be it your morning routine, an exercise habit, or some sort of enlightenment practice like meditation.
Setbacks are inevitable. The Lizard Brain, as Seth Godin calls it, is powerful. It’s that old part of our brain that thinks about survival, but it’s also the part that’s used to all our old habits.
When a setback occurs, don’t get down on yourself. We’ve all been there. We will all be there again.
Instead, stand up, brush the dust of your trousers, and recall the purpose for which you set out to change in the first place.
Tomorrow is another day, so get some sleep, and get back on that horse.
