When you comfort an obstacle to getting what you want, consider a new attitude: It's just a habit. And it can be changed.

There Are So Many Ways To Changed Your Habit!

Imagine for a moment that many of our most troublesome problems and even our most basic traits are just habits.

Choose and commit:
It often helps to choose a new habit to replace an old one. Then make a commitment to practice the new habit. Set up a plan for when and how. Where will I be? What will I be seeing, hearing, touching, saying, or doing? Exactly how will I think, speak, or act differently?

Get feedback and support:
It's easy to practice your new behavior with great enthusiasm for a few days. After the initial rush of excitement, however, things can get a little tougher. We begin to find excuse for slipping back into old habits: One more cigarette won't hurt." "I can get back to my diet tomorrow. It's been a tough day. I deserve this beer."

Practice, practice, practice-----without self-judgment:
This idea is key to changing habits. Act on your intention. If you fail or forget, let go of any self-judgment. Just keep practicing the new habit and allow whatever time it takes to make a change.
