The concept of the 21-day challenge is part of the perfect plan. The reason is because you aren't committing for the rest of your life, you are committing to 21 days. Many people who invested themselves in this plan did just that. Why is the plan so effective? According to those who use the challenge to get out of their bad habit rut, say it's easy, it's consistent, and it's time limited. Below are important ways to make it successful for you.
1. Making your challenge public to as many people as possible will help you keep your commitment.
2. Writing your commitment or plan down helps solidify it in your daily thoughts, which help you carry it through.
3. Your healthy habits will transfer to engaging in other behaviors you want to change. Success with a new habit change builds confidence, which prevents you from going back into your rut.
4. When others see your change their positive response reinforces your behavioral changes.
The key for this challenge is the 21 days. You can do anything for 21 days and consistently preparing and planning to make a change for 21 days will ensure success. Take the challenge, make the change. Ruts may be a safe place to visit, but no one wants to live there. -Mary Jo Rapini
