WHO AM I?
I AM THE ALLY OF ALL MEN THAT ARE GREAT AND I AM THE ENEMY OF ALL FAILURES AS WELL.
I WORK WITH THE PERCISION OF A MACHINE, BUT I AM NOT MECHANICAL.
IF YOU TEACH ME A TASK, I WILL DO IT ALMOST AUTOMATICALLY, WITH OUT YOUR SUPERVISION.
IF YOU ARE FIRM WITH ME AND TEACH ME EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT, I WILL LAY THE WORLD AT YOUR FEET.
IF YOU TAKE ME FOR GRANITE AND TREAT ME LOSELY, I WILL DESTROY YOU!
WHO AM I?
Did you know it’s a HABIT? If you study the most successful people in business, you will see this one common denominator. They operate almost like a machine when it comes to the daily details of their business and their lives.
Psychologists teach us that an act becomes a habit if it is repeated consistently for 21 days. The dictionary defines habit as a noun –A settled or regular tendency or practice esp. one that is hard to give up. Just ask a smoker how hard it is to break a habit. If we build positive and productive habits into our lives we are unstoppable. We have all driven to a job or school the same route over and over. We all have had that feeling of “I don’t even remember driving in this morning”. It doesn’t mean we were unsafe or out of control. It just means our mind was in such of a “habit” to making the drive that we were able to think about other things or maybe even talk on our cell phone, oops, bad habit!
Take the details of your business and your life and focus on one for just 21 days. You will start to see a difference in what you truly want to accomplish. Take the “habit” challenge today! Procrastination is a really bad HABIT!
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.”
