There are reasons you should resist the influence for developing bad habits, among which are: Enhancement of your personal relationships, and better rapport with fellow employees where you work. Plus, you could save money by being strong.
None of us are immune to the influence of bad habits, although you may feel as if you can resist it. That is, you might feel that way until you catch yourself falling victim to developing bad habits yourself by associating with others around you. It could be personal relationships or your relationships at work, but it’s hard to resist the influence of people around you.
It’s uncomplicated to go to one restaurant instead of stopping at two. If that restaurant happens to have only greasy foods, it could be hard to resist eating things that you’d rather not eat. You’re vulnerable to the influence of bad habit because of your personal relationships; and thus you’re at risk for developing bad habits like overeating.
The influence of smoking cigarettes is additionally a bad habit, which you should resist. You might succumb to the influence of peer pressure. Just sitting in the same room with companions during the evening, while they smoke cigarettes, puts you at risk for developing a bad habit like smoking.
You might get sick from secondhand cigarette smoke at first, but then you could gradually get used to it. But what if you became accustomed to it? You might even start to like it. You could even get addicted to tobacco because of the effects of the cast-off cigarette smoke.
Influence of fighting is a bad habit that you may never have even considered. Many couples fight each other in their personal relationships. It could be your spouse who picks a fight with you. You might not want to fight or argue with your spouse, but emotions make it difficult to resist the temptation to retaliate.
You could get up and walk away from the abusive spouse. But your spouse could egg-you-on and refuse to let you leave. A fight might ensue; and pretty soon you are both in a fight. You might continually fight with each other–until fighting becomes inured in your relationship.
Carelessness could become infectious because of workplace relationships. One worker’s attitude might contaminate attitudes of fellow workers. A crew member, for instances, might be irresponsible while operating heavy equipment; then everyone starts neglecting worksite safety because of the influential bad habit of one worker.
Gossip is another thing, which might have an effect on you in your workplace relationships. Gossip can spread like a viral infection. One employee might disclose information about compensation, which is against the rules at most worksites.
Before you know it; everyone is either demanding to make more money for doing the same job, or boasting about how much money they earn. If an individual discloses private company business, the gossip mill could begin to churn. Gossip might get out of control because co-workers might take it as a personally that they don’t earn as much as a peer, since they may have been with the company longer; and they’re doing the same job.
Cynical people often have the bad habit of only looking at the negative side of every situation. This attitude could rub off on fellow workers who spend a great deal of time with the pessimist.
You need to resist the influence of developing bad habits in personal relationships and relationships at work. And you can do it.
