Good Habits Are The Key To All Success

Good habits are the key to all success. In the words of Warren Buffet, “Bad habits are like chains that are too light to feel until they are too heavy to carry”.

See this short video titled How to break habits (from The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg).

What are your morning habits? What about your work habits? Or your habits in your relationships, with what you eat every day, plus with what you typically think about?

Your life is all about the little habits that you run every day and …guess what? Little shifts in your habits can make a HUGE change in your life for the better.

Don’t underestimate the importance of your habits and why you should begin every day with a fast start and build performance momentum as quickly in the day as possible.

“In truth, the only difference between those who have failed and those who have succeeded lies in the difference of their habits.

Good habits are the key to all success. Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure.

Thus, the first law I will obey, which precedeth all others is – I will form good habits and become their slave.” –(ad) Og Mandino

“Some habits, say researchers, are more important than others because they have the power to start a chain reaction, shifting other patterns as they move through our lives.

Keystone habits influence how we work, eat, play, live, spend, and communicate.

Keystone habits start a process that, over time, transforms everything.” –(ad) Charles Duhigg

There are three basic characteristics that keystone habits all share, and if you look for these characteristics, you can figure out which parts of your life can become leverage points for success.

Read about those at (ad) The Right Habits.

    Thank you too Gregory. 🙂 For me, drive is sourced in inspiration, so I need to keep myself in view of the bigger picture and feel, in a truly heartfelt way, why I want my goals achieved. I guess you can see why I called my business “Forward Steps”. Like you, I’m a true believer in stepping forward every day & leveraging the compound effect of those consistent actions. Cheers, Thea

    A bit of both, habits and drive.

    You will not be successful if you do not have the drive to keep moving your ball down the field.

    Each day you have to be sure that you have advanced your project, make the calls, book the meetings, pitch ideas.

    Invest some money, purchase a new piece of equipment, take risk etc.

    Simple talk is valuable but we must step out big time in order to move up the ladder.

    Keep up the good work on your blog,
