Everything you learn, you either learn from observation, imitation or repetition. This learning, over time gets converted into your habits, which either serve you or keep you trapped in a life of mediocrity. Your habit set, starts to develop, from offhand remarks, fleeting ideas and vague images, which settle layer upon layer, in your mind and through repetition, these unimportant, wispy cobwebs keep growing, until they turn into thick inflexible cables, which can either shackle and limit you or strengthen your ability to succeed.
You can either consciously manage and control your habits as they form, turning them into your success habit set, which will serve your needs and assist you to effortlessly perform the daily activities, which you need to carry out, to create the success you desire or you can leave the formation of your habits to chance, where your habit set, will become your greatest limiting factor, keeping you trapped in a life you hate.
Our habits are like nuclear submarines, they run silent and deep. You don’t even know they are there, you will never discover them unless you actively search for them and even then, it is possible that they may remain hidden from you. Have you got any idea, whether your habits are serving you, are they helping or hindering your progress each day? Have the courage, to explore your habits, if they are limiting you or causing you to procrastinate, not take the appropriate daily action, causing you to spin your wheels or in any way limiting you, use the awareness that will flow from this article, to begin changing them for ones that will help you.
“We are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act it is a habit.” Aristotle.
Are you striving for excellence in your own life and no matter how hard you seem to try, nothing seems to work out for you, yet you look around you and people with less skill, ability and who work half as hard as you seem to have the Midas touch and everything just seems to just fall into their laps? Look at the habits sets of these people with the Midas touch, they have a daily set of habits and routines, which work for them, they do not need to consciously think about all the activities they need to do, their good habits, dictate the perfect way they operate.
Have you ever driven to a familiar destination, arrived there and thought, “How did I get here, what route did I take” and no matter how hard you thought about it, you could not remember. You had safely negotiated, dangerous traffic, turned at exactly the right time, stopped when the traffic in front of you did and yet you arrived at your destination safely, unable to remember how you did it. Those are you subconscious habits at work.
A great success habit set will work the same way for you, you will unconsciously carry out all the daily activities necessary to succeed, arriving at success one day, shaking your head, unable to remember how you got there. Choose your habits wisely as they dictate what you do most of the day, they can either slow you down, where you just spin your wheels all day or they can be the fuel that catapults you to success. You get to make your habits over time, but always remember that, it is your habits that will ultimately make you.
Choose to design your new habit set, by design, from this moment forward. Something this important deserves some special attention and a lot of your time. Habits are like comfortable warm beds on a cold winter’s night, they are easy to get into, but really difficult to get out of in the morning. Start today, one small habit at a time and begin to design your perfect success habit set. The effort you put into designing a winning habit set will help you to effortlessly achieve any outcome you really want.
