Habits are the daily disciplines that determine whether or not you will end up with a positive mental image,vibrant health and financial freedom.
Quality is not an act,it is a habit-Aristotle
Here’s an important fact to remember,Successful people have successful habits,unsuccessful people don’t. It’s that simple.You can apply this strategy to any area of your life that you wish to improve and reap wonderful rewards.
First, let’s define habits. Simply put,habits are something you do often,until they become easy. The longer you repeat the behavior,the easier it becomes until eventually you do it unconsciously. For example,i wanted to increase my water and fruit intake,I would get off to a good start for a couple of weeks and then i ‘d forget. The problem was that i was too sporadic-I needed a plan.I decided that every time i went to the gym,i would bring a large water bottle and one piece of fruit,with the promise to myself that they would be gone before i returned home. This worked like a charm. I am now totally unconscious of packing them in my bag and it’s automatic i consume them. That habit is now 4 years plus.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage-pleasantly,smiling,non-aplologetically to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside- Steven Covey
We are all creatures of habit. Most of our normal daily behaviour is habitual. The first ninety minutes of my morning from the time i wake up until I’m in work mode,involves habits that are automatic: bathroom,shower,makeup,dressing,preparing breakfast,reading,washing up,checking the to-do list. None of these habits require major decisions.
What about you? When you wake up,do you immediately think,”I wonder what my habits will be today?” Of course not.Yo simply do what you do,and get on with your day.
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken-Warren Buffet
