Even though the initial trial proved to be somewhat difficult, I was determined to succeed. I made sticking to vegetarian dietary program a habit and this conditioned me to a point that it was much easier for me to continue with the program. The principles of experimentation, replacement, leverage, and conditioning are critical when one wants to become a vegetarian (Keith 18). My success in becoming a vegetarian can be attributed to the fact that I originally went into the trial with an open and curious mind. Although I had heard many things about the merits and demerits of becoming a vegetarian, I tried becoming one by maintaining an objective and open mind devoid of subjectivity and personal biases. Studies have shown that subjectivity and personal biases can make attempts to becoming a vegetarian unsuccessful or to take long before the goal is achieved (Rice 71). To avoid subjectivity and personal biases, I kept a journal for my experiment of becoming a vegetarian. I wrote down subjective rating of what I felt regarding my mental and physical energy, as well as levels of mental clarity before and after starting the trial in each particular day. Besides, I wrote about problems I had overcome or solutions I had discovered at the end of each day.
