Have you ever caught yourself doing or saying something you swore you would never do?
You are TRIGGERED!
It can be frustrating when you set the rules and don’t follow them. Sometimes you put your foot in your mouth. Sometimes you put the pizza in your mouth. In any case, your emotional habits are triggering your actions usually before you can do anything about it.
Controlling behaviors that have been on auto-pilot for years takes:
1) Catching yourself after the trigger, notice your mistake, and stop it sooner next time.
2) Catching yourself while you are being triggered. Get control as soon as you can. You’re getting better.
3) Catching yourself before you ae trigger and avoid it altogether. Your life is now in your control.
Don’t let emotional triggers throw you off track of your goals. Pay attention to your behaviors and make minor adjustments until you get what you want.
