Good Habits  -vs- Bad Habits

The reality is…Each and everyone of us has both.

Successful people tend to have more of the good and less of the bad.

Unsuccessful people tend to have less of the good and more of the
bad.

Some people have good financial habits, but poor health habits.
They are rich and die young.

Some people have good health habits but poor financial habits. They
are poor and live long.

Wouldn’t you rather have it all?

The good news is you can have it all…

It’s all in the habits you develop. Each area of life you want to
succeed in, you will succeed, if you develop positive habits and
attitudes toward the success and achievement you desire.

Habits we Train…are Habits we Gain.

What are some of the best habits you’ve developed so far?

Do you exercise regularly?

Do you follow a healthy nutrition program?

Are you a positive and respectful person?

Are you on a consistent path of positive self improvement?

If you have developed good habits in each area of life, chances are
you are well on your way to a life filled with health, wealth and
happiness. If you haven’t…you aren’t!

Do you have any bad habits you’d like to change?

Imagine you have only one bad habit in life, other than that, you
are perfect.

But that one bad habit may cause you and your loved ones great harm
some day.

Do you think you could change it? You can and will if you really
want to…

How? First, you’ll need to come up with enough reasons why you must
change.

When you come up with enough why’s, you will always find the way.

Next, is to develop a 3 Step Action Plan and take action
immediately and everyday.

Massive Action leads to Massive Results…

Finally, is to track your progress and make adjustments in your
actions, as needed.

Most people say it takes 21 days to a new habit. If you do
something over and over
again for 21-30 days straight, you are bound to at least begin to
develop a new habit.

My experience has taught me to use the first 21 days to lay the
foundation of the new
habit or behavior that I am trying to develop and anchor into my
routines of life.

Ex: Let’s say you wish to develop the habit of reading daily and
improving your commitment
to positive self development. Maybe you want to watch TV less and
read more.

Why? What are the reasons? What is likely to happen if you don’t
change?

What are your desired outcomes by developing your new habit?

Experts in human psychology feel that is you don’t have enough
why’s, the pluses and/or
minuses, you probably won’t follow through on your plan. I can
identify with that one.

Once you’ve convinced yourself of the importance and value of your
new habit. It always
works best if you come up with at least 3 actions you are going to
take immediately.

In the example above, say you decided to take the following actions:

#1. Go to Border’s and purchase 3 books, one on attitude
development (Gitomer’s “YES”),
 another on nutrition (The Abs Diet) and another one on a
finances. (Rich Dad/Poor Dad)

#2. You commit to shut off the TV and read for 30 minutes per day
minimum.

#3. You decide exactly when you are going to do it, and then, you
do it…everyday!

Let’s assume you did this for a minimum of the next 21-30 days,
chances are good you
would begin to experience some kind of positive benefit…right?

That is likely to encourage you to keep doing it and make it habit.

Would that be a good habit or a bad habit?

Go for it…
