"ATOMIC HABITS" (Chapter 8): Making Habits Irresistible | Keto Mom Book Club

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

Keto Mom here!

We have to make the systems and habits that we ultimately want to create, attractive. If they're not attractive or if the things that we want to achieve are not attractive, if they're not going to cause a dopamine release, then we're not going to do it.

"The Second Law of Behavior Change is making it attractive. The more attractive the opportunity is, the more likely you are to become into forming a habit. Habits are dopamine releases, when dopamine rises, so does our motivation to act. It is the anticipation of a reward, not the fulfillment. - James Clear
