The above quote is from James Clear’s book, Atomic Habits, and is at the heart of Consequence of Habit (CoH) mission:
To empower individuals and the community by bringing awareness to the impact habits have on our mental health, success, and the environment.
The idea of CoH began in 2019 when the founder, Josh Frank (JT), came to a crossroads in his life. He had developed an unhealthy relationship with alcohol, and it was harming the most critical aspects of his life: his relationship with his family and, ultimately, his relationship with himself. Through personal reflection and the help of others, he got sober and began to look inwardly at all of the habits that were creating obstacles in his life. JT became fascinated with the power of habit building, both negative and positive, in relation to happiness and success.
JT’s lifestyle changes inspired him to create the Consequence of Habit podcast in 2020 to empower individuals and communities by bringing awareness to the impact habits have on mental health, success, and the environment. Since then, he has had the honor of interviewing a diverse range of guests, from high- ranking military officers to professional athletes to your seemingly average everyday person. The common thread in all of JT’s interviews is that his guests have made positive changes in their lives by looking inwardly, examining their habits, and making changes. JT has taken these lessons, pinpointed what worked, and incorporated them into something that benefits a broader audience.
In late 2020, Consequence of Habit Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was created to help others establish habits to succeed and improve mental health. CoH provides an array of programs and resources designed to equip people with the knowledge and tools necessary to transform their lives positively. From addiction recovery support to workshops on goal setting and habit formation, Consequence of Habit tailors its services to meet the unique needs of those seeking change. Consequence of Habit is not limited to individual transformations; it is also committed to strengthening communities. Through partnerships with local organizations and businesses, the nonprofit promotes awareness of the consequences of habits and how they can impact collective well-being. This approach fosters a sense of unity and shared responsibility among community members.
As Consequence of Habit continues to grow and evolve, it envisions a future where its message of positive change and personal transformation reaches an even broader audience. The organization’s commitment to empowering individuals and communities remains unwavering, and its impact continues to expand.
Consequence of Habit serves as a testament to the power of change and the difference one nonprofit can make in the lives of countless individuals. Through their dedication to breaking the chains of destructive habits and promoting positive choices, they are a source of hope and inspiration for those seeking a brighter, more fulfilling future.
