Why a page devoted to quotes about habits? Consider what Og Mandino says about habits: “Good habits are the key to all success.” And the good news is we don't have to reinvent the wheel. We can see what successful people do, and follow their lead.
James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits says, “Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.” via: https://jamesclear.com/habits
My favorite mentor, Jim Rohn, a man who can say so much with so few words puts it this way, “Success is a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.” You can’t say it much better than that.
And the best way to form new habits? It’s not through willpower. Willpower is finite in the short run. So how in the world do you do it? Let’s go back to James Clear.
“Solve this [willpower] problem by picking a new habit that is easy enough that you don't need motivation to do it. Rather than starting with 50 pushups per day, start with 5 pushups per day. Rather than trying to meditate for 10 minutes per day, start by meditating for one minute per day. Make it easy enough that you can get it done without motivation.”
Thank you James.
