In life there are habits that bring people together in very unexpected ways. A few years ago on a bowfishing trip, Chuck Belmore, Jon Justice, and JP Morris met on a boat headed out to do what they all three loved to do…shoot fish. A friendship was made and The Habit was born. This trio all share in their desire to stretch long weekends into impossible outdoor road trips. No matter the distance or lack of sleep, they spend every free second in the outdoors. Whether it's ducks, deer, elk, or fish, you can always count on them to chase their habit.

The Habit - Golden Rule of Habit Change - Netflix
The Golden rule of habit change helps stop addictive habits and replace them with new ones. It states that if you keep the initial cue, replace the routine, and keep the reward, change will eventually occur, although individuals who do not believe in what they are doing will likely fall short of the expectations and give up. Belief is a critical element of such a change, though it can be structured in a number of ways including group settings. Often people who join groups like accountability groups are better off than those who act alone as individuals. Charles Duhigg used several examples to illustrate his argument, including the case of Bill Wilson, a recovering alcoholic whose newfound faith in Christ led him to create Alcoholics Anonymous. By understanding habits, the golden rule of habit, and the crucial role of belief, he was able to start a foundation that has reformed tens of thousands of alcoholics.
