Creating Successful Habits With Four Simple Disciplines

Do you know what makes successful people successful?
Everyone would jump at the chance to be able to go to the local mall and pick up a bottle of success. But let’s look past that fantasy and find out one of the most basic reasons why people become successful.
Right now, think of someone that you know personally who is successful. Can you picture their face in your mind? Good.
Now think about this question, “Does this person have a successful routine or set of habits that allows them to be successful?” I would be bewildered if they didn’t.
Sometimes the only distinction between being successful and being average is having exceptional habits. A few examples of successful habits could be getting up earlier, not procrastinating thngs that need to be done, being prepared, or effective time management.
How do you begin to build these success habits in your life? Here are 4 steps to creating successful habits.
1. Identify – Discover the areas in your life that need modifying. When you have finished your inner inventory, write down the new habits that need to be started. Don’t become overcome at trying to figure out how you are going to form all of these habits.
2. Pick 2 – Most people sabotage themselves by trying to modify everything at once. Instead, pick one major and one lessor habit that you want to form. For the next 30-90 days these will be the success habits that you will create.
3. Start small – Now that you determined your two success habits, create a daily or weekly routine that is easy to follow. For instance, let’s say that you want to wake up an hour earlier so that you can get more important things done. Instead of setting your alarm an hour earlier right at the beginning, only set it 2-5 minutes earlier every morning until you reach your goal. This way it would take you 30 days to 12 days respectively to gain your success habit.
Remember, “the best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.”
4. Repetition – Once you have created your new habits move on to the next 2 success habits that you want to create. Soon you will discover you will have initiated a whole new life full of success filled habits.
Just think where you will be in one year if you follow these four disciplines to creating successful habits. If it takes you only 60 days to develop 2 habits, you can have created 12 success habits in just one year!
