Your habits are the key to a better life.

You are what you do on a regular basis and habits are the key to that.

Habits make up 43% of what we do each day, so having habits that move our life ahead will pretty much guarantee a successful life. One of the things that hold us back is that we have habits that work against us, and because habits operate under the radar, we don’t even notice them. So you will need to weed out the bad habits while planting new ones. Set the bar low at first when you are starting or stopping habits. Take your time and you will make it happen.

How can you make habits work for you today?

Start a habits group if you want to make real progress.

Good habits lead to good outcomes and a habits group can make it happen.

Replacing bad habits with good habits is a proven method of moving your life ahead. But many people have trouble doing this. Forming a group of two or more people to meet in person or via phone to share your objectives and progress is one way to get your habits seated. The group holds you accountable and focuses your attention on what you need to do.

Pick a habit you want to start and then pick up the phone to call a friend to share it with.

Five things you must fail at in order to be successful.

Being a failure at these things almost guarantees your success.

Here are five things to fail at:

1. Fail at achieving your original plan. You need to be flexible as things change.

2. Fail at feeling completely prepared and confident. You need to start before you are ready.

3. Fail at pleasing everyone, you can never make everyone happy, why try?

4. Fail at feeling OK all the time. You will have stress if you are putting yourself out there.

5. Fail at doing it all yourself. You can never do it all yourself.

OK are you ready to fail in order to make it big?

Four things to give up today.

Stop doing these things today and you will have a perfect life.

1. Doubting yourself. There are plenty of people to do that for you.

2. Procrastination. Once you start you will wonder why you ever hesitated.

3. Fear of success. This is hard to spot, but man is it powerful.

4. Perfectionism. Getting to perfect is just never worth it.

OK, which one are you giving up first?

Empty your trash before you try to move ahead.

Carrying the trash from your past stops you from achieving success.

Past failures, disappointments, etc can be a good lesson on what to do in the future, but more often they are things that we hang onto and drag us down. All this trash from the past takes up space in our minds than we need to focus on what lies ahead. And it pulls down your morale as well.

Dump your trash today and focus on the future.

Remind yourself who you are about to be.

When you need to motivate yourself, picture who you are about to become.

It is easy to get discouraged when you are remaking yourself or stretching to reach new goals. New things have a way of getting complicated, setbacks occur and so on. This is a point where many people give up. Don’t do it. Instead focus on who you are so close to becoming. Think of the new you and how much you want it and how close you may be.

There is a new you right around the corner. Can you see it?

Most masterpieces started out as a dud.

Most great works or accomplishments start out just awful. It is what happens after that that counts.

Very few people come up with the perfect book, painting, business idea, etc on the first try. Usually the first effort is pretty bad. If you ever have a chance to trace back the steps a successful effort went through before it was finished, you would be amazed. The trick is to hang in there and let your creative juices work on it. Keep trying and make small improvements. Sooner or later it will get there.

So what dud project can you make a small improvement on today?

You have to say “Thank You” if you want more gifts from life.

If you gave someone a gift and they did not thank you, would you give that person a gift again? Life is the same way.

You have been given a number of gifts in this life, but have you said “Thank You”? Have you even acknowledged these gifts to yourself? It is just one of those rules of life that you can’t get around; you have to appreciate what you have. Grumpy begets grumpy, happiness breeds happiness.

What can you be happy about right now?

Look for people that have other thoughts.

The most successful people mix their thoughts up with thoughts from other people and then pick what is best.

Being a “yes man” might work for the “yes man” but it doesn’t work for the person being “yessed” You can always learn new things and pick up better ideas no matter how good you are.

Start listening to new ideas today.
