Habit is the process of doing things over and over again. The more you repeat your actions, the stronger your habits become. It is just as easy to develop a bad habit as it is to develop a good habit.
You should concentrate on developing good ones.
Habits you want to change can only be modified by replacing that habit with an alternative.
When you get rid of a bad habit you leave a void. When you run into the situations where you used to indulge your bad habit, what will you do now? You'll probably go back to your old habit unless you have decided on something to do instead. So, you need to decide what you're going to replace your old habit with, before attempting to change to a new one.Five Power Habits:
Action. When you take action, your ideas come to life! You may have the greatest idea, but if you haven't taken action, what good is it? Your idea is just that: an idea. When you get into the habit of taking action, achieving results becomes easier. The more you practice taking action, the stronger the habit becomes.
Emotion. You must have feelings for what you are doing. When you are doing something you love, you find that you do it better. Ideas come to you more freely; overcoming obstacles becomes easier. Put a little emotion into what you do, and see the changes in your work!
Belief. One of the most important aspects of reaching your goal is belief. You have to believe! If you don't believe in yourself, you will never achieve your goals. Eliminate the obstacles that exist in your mind. Close your eyes, and envision yourself having already achieved your goal!
Persistence. Without persistence, you won't get very far. The road to success comes with many obstacles. Giving in to them creates disaster! Keep trying, and keep going. If you fall, get up, try harder, and become a winner, not stopping for anything. Be persistent, not letting anything get in your way.
Focus. Focus will give you tremendous results. Distractions repel us from our real goals. Daily distractions take away from activities that can benefit your business. The habit of jumping from one idea to the next, from one task to the next, will result in wasted time. These jobs could have been completed with increased efficiency, if you had focused on what you were doing.
