Running for LIFE: Day 21st

April 17, 2017

So guys, today is my 21st day.

Today I recorded my video:

(In past there was a lot of thoughts that it takes 21 days to cultivate a habit, if you do it regularly. Everyone were talking about it, many great people included in their books and speeches. But most didn’t knew from where it actually came. But recently it found that it actually came from one of the greatest books Psycho cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, a plastic surgeon, where he said, in average a person takes about 21 days to realize his new self image like to realize about Phantom Limb. But due to telephone effect, the fact got completely changed. People started saying it takes only 21 days to cultivate a habit, moreover 21 day is pretty appealing. Back in the day, I thought the same. But it is just a myth.

I read a blog named Jamesclear.com there was this article: Phillipa Lally a researcher in University College London, ran study for 12 weeks, using that data she found out in average it takes 66 days to form a habit or 18 to 254 days for people to form new habit, well it depends upon complexity and circumstances, harder one takes more time but easier forms within days.)

So, guys this is my progress of last 7 days:

Today one unexpected thing happened, a Gay Man dressed as woman came into the Bus, collecting money like a robber from all the passengers, I also gave him then he started abusing me, he started hugging, even kissed in my face, started talking about bad things. I am really feeling weak, it feels uncomfortable. I am anxious, I don’t know whether it was legal or not but I was freezed because of fear, I feel guilty for not being able to defend myself. Still, I don’t feel good. This incident has really moved me. I am a sensitive person, I am afraid what kind of impact will this create in my life. 2155, I am still thinking about that incident, it still makes me anxious. OMG. I even shared this on Quora, because I wanted to express it somewhere.)
