Do you actually understand your habits well enough? If you don’t, then you’re in trouble. This is because, your habits will control your life, out of your consciousness.
If you have more good/positive habits than bad/negative habits, then you are on the right track, because it will lead you to become a better you. The problem is if the habits you have are more on the bad side, or big negative habits, it will drag you into a worse life.
There’re 2 categories of habits: habits to do, and habits not to do.
What are the main habits that people have? Let’s try to list some main habits here:
- Positive thinking
- Passion with dreams
- Respect each other
- Being grateful
- Open Mind
- Eager to learn
- Negative thinking
- Always seek for excuses
- Close mind
- Backstab people
- Sleep late
I won’t list it all here, and I shall leave this part for you to analysis. What are your good habits and what are your bad habits? I would recommend you to take out a pen and a paper, make it into 2 parts, and write down your good and bad habits on it. And start analyze, which make you a better you? And which are the reasons that cause you not success, or even fail in achieving what you want in life? Which are the factors that caused people to stay away from you?
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle
I hope you get serious with habits, as habits is the key that decide who you are 5 years, 10 years from now, or the entire life of yours! Lazy people get a poor life; persist on dreams lead one to succeed; always seek for excuses when something gone wrong or not achieving target leads you to nowhere; take action more than merely talk or hope… always drag things to tomorrow…
Everyone has 24 hours a day, so what makes one become a billionaire and living great in life while the others don’t? For a common allocation, 1st 8 hours of sleep, 2nd 8 hours of working/studying, and the last 8 hours is the key time that decides who are you, or who will you be ( This is for normal working people/students, everyone’s schedule is different, an example of time management). Some use their spare time more for entertainment, watch Television, chatting, sleep; and some use it to learn extra skills, to study, to continue work on their job, part time for more bucks and so on. Few years from now, who will be more successful? The one that watch a lot of entertainment show or the one keep on learning and practice what he/she learns?
You might notice one thing that, friends that you’re sticking with is part of the effect of habits too! Lazy people prefer to stick with lazy people, because they feel more “normal” with the crowd. And to give you an idea – stick with positive people does affect and form you yourself new positive habits.
Before I end this topic, I would like to share with you 2 more funny habits. The first one is habiting to say “but”.
I wish to…. but…; I will make it this time… but…; I want to lose my weight… but…..
The second one would be “If / If only”, If I have a million dollar…. If only I take the second choice that time… If only I work harder…. If only I listen to your advice…
“The saddest word in English is “If”, William Shakespeare
Habits affect everything in your life: success, health, relationship, and many more. Start analysis how habits and learn how it affect your life now.
So, are you ready to change your habits?
