Good Habits

I read a fair amount of success stories and concepts or methods of how it is achieved. I haven’t mastered them all yet, but it’s worth sharing along the way so hopefully we can all find ways to succeed. Here’s one lesson that I’ve learned that might help you…

Think of three things you are not doing consistently that if you did consistently on a daily basis would have a strong, positive impact on your life. Maybe one of them is a better devotional life, or 30 minutes of exercise, or 30 minutes an evening without television to spend with the family, or to simply read an extra 30 minutes per night to keep your mental skills sharp and your language skills on top. Perhaps you might take up a hobby, or a friendship, or help someone in need.

The point is to think of three things that you are not doing now that if you did them would impact your life in a positive way. Believe it or not, most people have never considered the idea of deliberately and consciously developing good habits that are consistent with their life purpose. Most habits are formed by default or out of absolute necessity. Most successful people realize they have to take control of their actions and they take the time to purposefully develop a few specific habits that will bring them closer to their life purpose.

Once you have identified the habits you want to develop, find someone that can either join you in that habit or help hold you accountable. They will be doing you a favor and you will be a better person for it!
