Habits are the biggest cause of your success or lack of success. Habits are vitally important, but few people recognise their importance or understand how to create or manage them. 

Most people think of habits in a negative light … Drinking, drugs, gambling, and overeating are what pops into the mind of most of us when habits are mentioned.

However, many habits are positive, such as: 

  • Exercising
  • Meditating
  • Brushing your teeth 
  • Taking a shower 
  • Paying your bills on time 

Those who lack success have habits, too, and they contribute to their lack, such as: 

  • Procrastination
  • Social media
  • Surfing the internet 
  • Late night snacking 

These habits provide you with some sort of rewards that make these habits stronger over time. 

You are a bundle of habits – both good and bad! 

Habits make life possible. There’s only so much our brains can deal with each day. Imagine if you had to concentrate and be thoughtful about taking a bath, getting dressed, making your coffee, starting the car, and choosing a path to work. You’d be worn out before 8:00 AM!

Habits are automatic behaviours that lessen our cognitive load and save time. It’s easy to see how certain positive habits could make your life amazing, and negative habits could make it very challenging. 

Choosing and implementing effective habits can change your life in incredible ways. What are your daily habits? 

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
