Your HabitForce Checkup From The Neck Up! Matthew Cossolotto Says You Should “Declare Your Independence… From The Seven Habits That Hold You Back”

On July 5th 2011 — Declare Your Independence…

From The Seven Habits That Hold You Back

Matthew Cossolotto, author of HabitForce! and creator of “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th), offers “HabitForce Check Up From the Neck Up” programs to help you break free from FAILURE Traps and get on the SUCCESS Track

YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, NY – July 5, 2011 – This July 5th – a day after our national Independence Day — Matthew Cossolotto, author of HabitForce! and creator of “Make A Promise Day” (May 4th), urged everyone to “declare your independence” from the habits, mindsets and behavior patterns that hold you back from reaching your potential in life.

Cossolotto offers what he calls a “HabitForce Checkup From the Neck Up” – an entertaining and potentially life-changing presentation that helps people break free from the seven F.A.I.L.U.R.E. habits that hold them back from achieving their potential and reaching their goals and dreams.

“Most people feel stuck,” Cossolotto says.  “They feel trapped, unable to get enough traction to make the changes they’d like to make in their lives.  Why?  Because their HabitForce is working against them.  It’s like driving your car around with the emergency brake on and three flat tires.  You’re not going to get anywhere that way.”

Cossolotto declares:  “You have nothing to lose but your chains … in the form of disempowering habits and mindsets that tend to keep people anchored to patterns of thought and behavior that are counter-productive.  The first step toward personal change is to declare your independence from these negative habits by getting a thorough ‘HabitForce checkup from the neck up.’”

Cossolotto’s “HabitForce Checkup From the Neck Up” program features lively discussions about the Six Axioms of Personal Empowerment, the habits of F.A.I.L.U.R.E. and S.U.C.C.E.S.S., and the three-step process for reprogramming your HabitForce so it works for you, not against you.  This process is called “The Three Rs:  Recognize, Reject, and Replace.”

“The first order of business is to take inventory of the underlying habits and mindsets that control your life.  We’re all the product of our habits.  Aristotle said it well:  ‘We are what we repeatedly do.’  That’s where my ‘HabitForce Checkup From the Neck Up’ comes in.  This means taking stock of your underlying habits with the checklist of F.A.I.L.U.R.E. and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. habits that I describe in my book HabitForce! and in my presentations and coaching sessions.”

Cossolotto believes real transformation begins with self-awareness, when we start to closely monitor “our thoughts, our internal dialogue, the self-talk that goes on constantly between your ears.”  He says self awareness — especially with regard to this often negative, unconscious self-talk — is the key to harnessing your HabitForce and turning things around.
