There’s a series of success habits that I rely on to get me in the zone. These habits allow me to be in flow so I can create and produce at the highest level.
But when I was on vacation in Australia recently, all my success habits went out the window and my productivity went down to nothing!
I’m curious about your success habits…
What do you watch and listen to on a daily basis? Are you watching crappy TV or are you watching programs or listening to podcasts that support your success and motivate you on a daily basis to get what you want in life?
Who are the people you’re associating with? Do you spend time with people who drain your energy or people who uplift and inspire you to reach greater heights?
How about your self-talk? Are you telling yourself negative or positive stories on a day to day basis?
And what about your beliefs? What are the beliefs you’ve adopted from other people and the ones that you call your own? Are they supportive beliefs that allow you to fully express who you are and achieve your highest potential?
Or are they beliefs that hold you back? Beliefs like: I’m not enough. This isn’t going to happen. This isn’t possible. I’m too broke. I’m too young. I’m too old.
Habit is a very powerful thing. Whether it’s the actions you take or whether it’s your habitual forms of thinking and feeling, beliefs and ideation… all of those things define your life today.
The sum total of those habits compound on a daily basis to create the life you have right now.
Bestselling author, Darren Hardy says the compound effect happens when you extrapolate what you do every single day, over a month… a year… a lifetime.
Think about it – you may be spending years of your life watching guilty pleasure TV.
Now, I’m okay with with guilty pleasure TV – I’ve got my favorite shows too (right now it’s The Walking Dead and Handmaid’s Tale 🙂)
But if watching crappy TV is what you do every single day – every single night before you sleep – what’s that doing over the long term? Is it fueling you for more success?
Here’s the thing…
The Power of Habit is REAL.
It can propel you to the life you want to live or it can drag you way down, so it feels like you’ve got an anchor tied to your feet.
You’ll start to feel like you can never…
I know you’re the kind of person who wants more but the really interesting thing is that more starts with just one small habit, one action, one belief, one emotion at a time.
So, here’s to paying attention to what you’re thinking, reading, watching, and listening to on a daily basis.
Here’s to paying attention to what you do because your daily habits – actions, routines, thoughts, and beliefs – create your reality.
These habits will compound into who you are 1 year from now, 3 years from now and 5 years from now.
As Bill Gates famously said:
“Most people wildly overestimate what they can accomplish in a year and underestimate what they can accomplish in 10…”
And that’s where the Power of Habit comes in. Live Your Message every day — one emotion, one belief, one action, and one habit at a time.
So, what are the daily habits that support your success? Take some time to think about that and share in the comments below.
