The power of habit
Someone once said “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got!” A pertinent quote when we look at how often we fall into habits in our life - both good and bad! Too often we do the same things we did yesterday, the day before and every day for the last month.
Habits, good or bad, make you who you are. The key is controlling them. If you know how to change your habits, then even a small effort can create big changes. Individuals that achieve personal success have empowering habits; individuals that have personal failure have disempowering habits. Habits are a force that can produce amazing results, or deliver huge disappointment.Look at your life. Have you a habit you should break? OR, are there any you would like to form?
The Power of Habit (author unknown)
You may know me.
I'm your constant companion.
I'm your greatest helper;
I'm your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half the tasks you do might as well be turned over to me.
I'm able to do them quickly,
and I'm able to do them the same every time, If that's what you want.
I'm easily managed; all you've got to do is be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want it done; after a few lessons I'll do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great men and women;
of course, I'm the servant of all the failures as well.
I've made all the winners who have ever lived.
And, I've made all the losers too.
But I work with all the precision of a marvelous computer,
With the intelligence of a human being.
You may run me for profit, or you may run me to ruin;
It makes no difference to me.
Take me. Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.
Be firm with me, and I'll put the world at your feet.
Who am I?
Remember! Habits can be your best friend or your worst enemy, which is up to you!
