Let’s talk about habits.
If you’ve seen the film or read the book “The Secret,” you know of John Assaraf, an entrepreneur, and best-selling author. As I mentioned in a previous blog, I recently heard John speak. Though he’s not the only one out there preaching this message, we know it’s true, and we know it’s good to remind ourselves now and then: The things we do repeatedly are the things that will determine what happens in our lives.
When we develop skills and abilities, it’s because we take the time to do that. And what determines whether we put the time and energy into something? Our habits.
Successful people make time for the activities that make them successful. If you behave a certain way over and over, you get good at it. We talk about this in terms of captured power in a previous blog. When you build and develop a skill that is first-class and unique to you, you have a valuable asset that others don’t. You can utilize it for your benefit. You build that skill with habits that allow you to develop and deepen your aptitude.
The question is, what are your habits doing to you? We are all animals, and we’re all programmed through our lives to act certain ways. But we have the power to change our habits. As we change our habits and we change the things we do, our outcomes and the things that we are going to achieve change.
