So many people attempt to master a habit out of the gate and become frustrated when their efforts inevitably fall short. Often setting the bar too high, too early, with little understanding about “why” they are doing all this new stuff, it becomes easy to become unmotivated, or worse, convince ourselves we don’t want what we want. Although the path to success may be clear, underlying beliefs and values may influence us to act in destructive or less productive ways. However, by better identifying our beliefs and values, we can shift our attitudes to empower us to act more readily.

Instead of trying to accomplish all of your goals today, recognize you are a work in progress and simply aim for better. Aim for just 1-4% better and let time and the compound effect work to your advantage. With consistent effort and a little bit of space and understanding, habits will eventually begin to form themselves!

We at the Gerald L. Ignace Indian Health Center have always and will continue to be champions of equality for all #racial and #ethnic backgrounds. From our early beginnings on the North Side of Milwaukee, to the Historic Mitchell Street neighborhood where we reside today, we have lived by the values by which we were built:

#equality #love #courage #honesty #wisdom #humility #truth

Individuals of #diverse backgrounds and cultures are as much a valued part of our organization, as they are the #community which we serve. As an organization committed to improving the health, peace and well-being of Urban American Indian and Alaskan Native populations, we have a unique understanding of the racial and ethnic disparities that exist and we will continue to provide care to communities that are otherwise underserved.
