Positive Habits (Posted by Priya Deelchand)

"I Am A Habit"

H-A-B-I-T...When 95% of people hear this word, a negative
thought pops up in their minds. Typically, most people think
of a habit being negative.

The secret to your future lies in your daily habits so ask
yourself right now, "Are my habits today going to help me
achieve my WHY in life?"

This is a life-empowering question if you truly ask it and
listen for the answer.

I received the following excerpt from a very dear friend of
mine and felt that it is definitely the best explanation of
a habit that I have ever heard:

I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half the things you do, you might just as well turn over to
me, and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed; you must merely be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done, and after a few
lessons I will do it automatically.

I am the servant of all great men.
And, alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of
a machine.

Plus, the intelligence of a man.
You may run me for profit, or run me for ruin; it makes no
difference to me.
Take me, train me, be firm with me and I will put the world
at your feet.
Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Who am I?
I am a HABIT!

One of my daily habits that is the foundation of my life is
spending 45-60 minutes each and every morning feeding my
body physically by exercising and feeding my mental spirit
by reading or listening to a motivational message. This
habit warms me up for the day ahead.

Everyone washes their physical body and feeds their body
every morning, but 95% of people will find an excuse about
why they can not find the "TIME" to invest in a habit of
feeding their MINDS! This parallels the statistic that 95%
of people are dead or dead broke by the age 65.

I consider this particular daily habit of mine to be the
driving force behind my ability to consistently maintain my
intense focus on the journey of success and living a dream

Is it easy all the time? Of course not, but when it becomes
a habit -- you will do it! If you commit today to begin each
morning warming yourself up for the day ahead by feeding
your mental spirit, your entire life will change in a
positive fashion very quickly.

It is like driving a race car with the emergency brake on
and you try to go ahead, but you can't move. You stay in the
same location with your wheels spinning, burning up, making
a lot of noise, but not going anywhere!

All it takes is to release the brake and you will fly
towards toward your WHY in life! You need to review what
your habits are and ask yourself... "Would I recommend MY
habits to someone I truly love and care about?" Your entire
future lies in your daily habits... positive or negative.
You have the most powerful force right now in your hands,
the ability to decide what your habits will begin to be.

Find Your WHY & FLY!!
