VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)
OK you have probably heard this saying a million
times, but today I am going to show you
how to greatly improve your life just by utilizing
the power of this saying.
The saying "out of sight, out of mind" is very true.
When something is out of sight, you will often
forget about it.
When it comes to adding
new positive habits to your life
you want to always remember the things that can
contribute to your positive habits.
Here is an example.
I work out in a gym 3 times a week.
I know that if I add protein to my diet
I can increase lean muscle which will
help me stay fit,and in shape.
Here is the power of "Out of Sight, Out of Mind."
I bought a powder protein supplement with the intention
that every morning I would drink a protein
shake during breakfast.
I put the container of protein on my kitchen
Every morning for a week I made a protein drink
Two weeks into this new habit of drinking protein
drinks in the morning I realized that I had not had
a protein drink in over 5 days.
My daughter moved the protein powder from the
counter top to the kitchen floor next to
the cat food!
It was out of sight and you can already guess
what is coming next....it was "out of mind."
It was only inches away from where it had been,
but it was no longer in my field of view each
morning when I made my breakfast!
It stopped my new positive habit like a
red light stops traffic.
How can this help you have a
Let's say that you just found out that the supplement
"selenium" can help reduce your risk for getting cancer
and you bought a bottle of it.
If you place the bottle on the top shelf of your
refrigerator next to the orange juice that
you usually have every morning you will
end up taking it every day.
Guess what happens if you move that
bottle of selenium to the 2nd shelf
just 3 inches down from the top
It will get pushed to the back in a
couple days and out of sight....
your new habit will disappear.
But true....very true.
This strategy can be applied to almost
any aspect of your life that you want to make better.
You decide to carry a yellow notepad
around with you every day to keep a to-do
list. If you make it a habit to keep
it next to your car keys,you will always
be reminded to bring it with you.
Get the picture?
You will be amazed at how many things you forget
to do on a regular basis simply because
the object that triggers an action on your
part is nowhere in sight!
