What are your bad habits? How do your habits build the life you desire and which habits distract you from long term desires and dreams?
If genes are the building blocks of our body, then habits are the building blocks of our fulfillment and legacy.
Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Choose your words, for they become actions. Understand your actions, for they become habits. Study your habits, for they become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
In a recent program participants were invited to write 7 vision statements over the weekend. Once this was done they ripped them up. At the end of the program they walked away not with goals and hopes but 12 specific daily habits, that if followed with discipline, will be sure stepping stones to their dreams.
Henry David Thoreau said it well, “Build castles in the air that is where they should be now put the foundations under them”
There is too much wishful thinking and not manifesting. While visions of the future are important, they are only pipe dreams if you have not laid track to the light at the end of the tunnel. Every step must be a habit, daily direct and disciplined.
And if you get inspired with a new dream for your life but you do the same habits every day then nothing changes. It doesn’t matter if you tattoo your dream on your butt or tell a thousand friends cause same habits, same results.
We all have our daily habits. They function to take us sideways into reaction or forward into the mystery of vision unfolding. If you find yourself with unhealthy habits try the handy dandy habit converter available on my website and get back to purpose
