Episode 223: Habits & Sobriety | with Grace Vroom

If you want to change your life, you have to get honest with yourself.

What’s working? What isn’t working? Who’s bringing you forward and who’s bringing you back? Candid self-reflection can reveal things you wish weren’t there, but knowing what you’re dealing with makes big change possible.

Our guest, Grace Vroom, knew something had to give; there were countless areas of her life that she wanted to improve, but it was only after getting honest about her addiction to alcohol that she started to make any progress. Sobriety felt like such a daunting must-do on Grace’s self-improvement to-do list that she didn’t know how to start and she didn’t think she could sustain it. 

As you listen to this episode, we challenge you to pay close attention to what her lead domino was — it was so small that it might surprise you.

The ONE Thing to take away from this episode:

Sometimes we’re so focused on the thing that we want — the relationship, the job, the lifestyle — that we completely skip over the ONE thing we need to do. But when you do the hard thing, The ONE Thing that makes everything else easier or unnecessary, it makes so much room in your life for the things that matter most.

What’s ONE thing that you want to build a habit around this year? Who’s the person you want to become and what are the habits that that person needs to form?

The Living Your ONE Thing community is forming a 66-day challenge together, a community-wide collection of people all forming a power habit together. You can join us in two ways: downloading a 66-day calendar and working alongside us or by joining the Living Your ONE Thing community.
