How To Develop Life Changing Habits


One of the most important areas of personal development is your habits.



Every single day, you are doing one of two things:

1. Ingraining habits that you already have.
2. Developing new habits.

These things happen whether you realize it or not. They also happen whether you want them to or not!

Habits can be a very dangerous thing. For example, it's true that the nicotine in cigarettes is what makes it addicting. But you don't become addicted until after you have made smoking a habit.

It's when you make a habit of lighting up a cigarette every morning that ultimately leads to your addiction.

On the other end of the spectrum, habits can be used in a positive way to bring about very positive things in your life. I'm always asked how I can consistently get up each and every morning and go for a morning jog. And every time I tell them, "It's just a habit."

When I first started making my morning job a habit, it was very difficult getting up out of bed at 6:30 and running. Every day I had to fight it and make myself do it. But after doing it consistently for a few years, I've learned to think nothing of it.

It's so ingrained in my daily routine it's simply a part of who I am. I'm almost to the point where it seems as if it's a permanent habit.

On your road towards personal development, it's extremely important that you start learning to develop good habits and start eliminating bad habits.

One of my favorite quotes is from the best motivational speaker of our time Jim Rohn. He says...

Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day, while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.

Habits (or disciplines) are incredibly powerful things. Once you can learn to make certain things in your life a habit, you will quickly start to notice very positive things start to happen to you.

The hardest thing is getting started. That's why I recommend that you start with the easy stuff. For example, if you were trying to get into the habit of jogging, if that sounds too tough, start with just walking. For the next couple of weeks, specify a certain time that you will walk and start making it a routine habit.

Once you've made walking a habit, all you have to do then is pick up the pace a little and turn it into a jog.

The same technique applies with the other areas of your life.

If you haven't yet, I strongly recommend that you check out the articles below. They will give you everything you need to get started forming powerful habits. Remember, developing life changing habits is much simpler than you think. You just need to learn how.

Start today by making those changes and you'll be well on your way to a very successful life...
