Practice Makes Perfect

But there is no perfect practice

 

Happy, Happy 2015, EFTer! I hope you had a really cozy holiday season.

New Years always makes me think of all the good resolutions that people make on January 1st with the intention of enriching their lives and creating new levels of well-being and healing.

  • "I'm going to meditate for 30 minutes every day!"
  • "Every morning before going to work, I will do an hour of yoga."
  • "I've always been interested in shamanic drumming. I'm going to join that Friday night circle." 


I thought this might be a good time to review what it takes to make a new habit stick. EFT and other methods can help support us in our desire for personal growth and more fulfilling lives.

Pick a Practice and Stick with It

They all work


I don't know about you but I have this pattern of learning a great new technique or tool, giving it a try, deciding it's "the one", adopting it because "this" is going to work and then dropping it like a hotcake as soon as I learn about another new technique or tool that seems just as cool and just as powerful. 

Don't get me wrong, I don't advocate using only one thing forever...

HOWEVER, practice really is the only way to become good at something. There are no miracle-fast ways to learn how to do something well and get the best results. Time and experience are what it takes. Malcolm Gladwell, in the book "Outliers" (<-- link to great book!), says that 10,000 hours make someone a master at something. I'm betting that most of us have a ways to go in our spiritual, mental and emotional health practices before we'll hit that level. 
 
So, if you have to pick only one, should you pick meditation or EFT or should you take up yoga or maybe shamanic drumming? Which method is "the one"? "The best"? There isn't, in my experience, a "one" or a "best" other than the "one" you like most or that resonates "best" with your personality. Pick one to start with and once it's become a habit that happens without effort, pick another one and add it to your healing toolbox.

I speak from experience as much as from common sense. I've practiced using EFT as my main "go-to" technique since 2006, this has made me very proficient at it and I get consistently good results for both myself and my clients. That is the ultimate goal, isn't it, getting results that make your life better and help you grow emotionally, spiritually or whatever your aim.

So pick something that works for you, something that you've had some decent success with at least once or twice and, especially if it resonates with you, if you are excited about it. Commit to it! Don't drop it when the next one comes along. Make a note of the new tool or procedure if you don't want to forget it then put it aside. 

You'll need to do your chosen technique consistently for quite a while. They say it takes an average of 66 days (not 21 as is commonly thought) to create a new habit so if you keep dropping techniques and picking up new ones you'll never reap the full benefits of any of them.

A Little Help From A Researcher

EFT can support us in making the changes we sincerely want to make and this with more ease than usually expected. Take advantage of this great tool to up-level your life in small but significant ways. Get a well-being practice and keep it.

This guy's idea, though not based on EFT, is pretty "awesome", too (17m23s - if you don't have the time, just watch the first few minutes, that's enough to understand the "how-to").

I hope 2015 starts out with a commitment from you to you about what you will do for yourself this year to make it a great one.

Happy to support you in any way I can.

Cyber hugs,

Kelly.
