“Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while... you don't do things right once in a while... you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.”

3 Components of a Habit

  1. Cue (the Trigger):

    The cue is what kickstarts the habit. It's the moment that prompts your brain to engage in a particular behavior. When you figure out the cue to a habit, you hold the key to changing it.

  2. Routine (the Behavior Itself):

    This is the action you take in response to the cue. This is the physical actions that is taken, the actual habit, most people believe you need to start here to change a habit.

  3. Reward (the Motivation):

    Your brain seeks rewards. The reward reinforces the habit loop and makes your brain remember it. This is why we repeat especially bad habits. We associate a certain reward with a certain action, which we repeat.

The Key to Changing a Habit

Keep in mind; All habits, even the bad ones, exist because they provide some sort of reward.

Here’s a common example many people relate to. Procrastination:

If you feel anxious about a project and you are a bit scared it may not turn out okay. When you procrastinate, you get a reward much faster. You tell your brain your don’t have to worry about that project for another 5 minutes and check facebook or instagram instead. You can ‘escape’ the tension that this project creates.

A fast reward is in many ways more powerful than a slow, bigger reward.

Contrary to a common misconception, the true transformation of habits doesn't hinge on tweaking the routine itself.

Instead, the real magic lies in acknowledging the powerful cuethat initiates the habit and the reward – even if it's as tiny as a spark – that we offer ourselves upon its completion.

Why? Because in these subtle cues and modest rewards, we discover the key to unlocking the habit loop's code.

By shining a light on these fundamental elements, you gain the authority to not just alter, but fundamentally reshape the core of the habit loop itself.

It's like knowing the secret combination to a vault.

You hold the reins to your habits, enabling you to rewrite the script to your advantage.

So, the next time you seek to transform a habit, remember: it's in understanding the trigger and savoring the prize that you wield the true power to change.
