708 How to Break Your Addiction with Jack Canfield
SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS.
In football, we had systems for exercise, nutrition, plays, and practice.
If the system worked, we won championships.
The same works for addiction.
You have to have a system in place to help you overcome it.
You can’t just hope that you’ll make the right decision when you’re faced with it.
It all starts in the morning. Meditation, gratitude, and breathing can help you get in the right mindset.
Program your day.
We all have addictions we want to end. That’s why I’m sharing some key points from a conversation I had with the co-author of the book The 30-Day Sobriety Solution: How to Cut Back or Quit Drinking in the Privacy of Your Own Home: Jack Canfield.
Jack Canfield is an award-winning speaker and an internationally recognized leader in personal development and peak performance strategies. He is the creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and author of over 150 books. In 2014, SUCCESS magazine named him “One of the Most Influential Leaders in Personal Growth and Achievement.”
Jack tells us that some of the systems that we have in place to fight addiction may not be working as well as we’d like.
