“I’ve tried to give up before,” is what so many clients tell me. I’m less interested in the words themselves than how they say them: as though this is a fact which means they’re probably going to always struggle with alcohol.
You’ve probably heard Albert Einstein’s classic definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Many people hear this, nod sagely, agree – then carry on as before. That was me for so long.
How does this show up?
🍷 “I fell off the wagon. Back to day 1 again.”
🧁 “That diet failed, but I’ll start again tomorrow.”
“I’ve tried to give up before …”
Pay attention if you ever find yourself uttering or thinking these six little words. It’s a sure sign you’re working against yourself. It won’t matter how much massive action you’re willing to take. You’re less likely to achieve your goals because no matter what you try, you’ll be gauging the likelihood of future success on past failures.
In this episode, I explain how thinking: “I’ve tried to give up before” is going to block any habit change – and what to think instead. And yes, this really does work for any habit.
