Inspiration is that fire in your belly, which drives you to begin taking the necessary action to realize your dreams. Sustaining that initial momentum and to keep effectively traveling on the path of achievement, requires you to develop a success habit set, to help you sustain your daily efforts. That initial feeling of inspiration will be tested many times, as you travel on your success journey. You will encounter numerous challenges, setbacks and even temporary failures, along the way. The one thing, which will keep you going despite any obstacles, which may cross your path, even when that initial fire begins to burn out, is a well-designed and focused success habit set.
Have the courage to examine your habits today, are the things you habitually do, leading you closer to, or holding you away from the business or personal success you desire? Reinforce and develop, all your current success habits, which are delivering the results you want, but have the conviction and the courage to begin developing new success habits, which will support and promote your on-going and sustainable success. Aristotle said this so well when he said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not and act, but a habit.
How do you Recognise your Current Habits?
If you are in any way unsure of what your current habits and beliefs are, all you have to do is take a look around your life and business right now, you are living those habits and beliefs. Accept that the environment you live in and your current circumstances are the result of your habits and beliefs and not vice versa. Your current habit set is dictating how your world unfolds. When you make this realization and appreciate that the habitual actions you take or fail to take every day are moulding your future, you empower yourself to begin the journey from average to exceptional. You immediately change from being a mere CREATURE of your circumstances to a direct CREATOR of your circumstances.
Building Your New Success Habit set
Having a clear understanding of what has limited your growth in the past is important, as it gives you a set of guidelines, which shows you what to avoid in the future. The behaviors, habits and beliefs, which have held you away from your dreams until now, are merely neural pathways that can be altered. With sustained effort over time you can replace any bad or limiting habit, with a new success habit, which will support you on your success journey.
Action Idea: The journey to start building a success habit set, starts with first getting a crystal clear understanding of exactly what you want in your life and business and turning this in an understandable, functional and easy to use and apply vision statement. Once you know where you want to go, invest the time to discover the daily routines or activities, which will support you to achieve the success you desire. Now all that is left to do is to gradually build a plan to introduce these new success routines into your experience.
Try to identify one new success habit at a time, which will serve you going forward. Invest the time to make this part of who and what you are and success will begin to manifest in the most unsuspecting ways.
Avoid the habit of continually finding ways to GET OFF and develop the success habit of GETTING ON. GET ON with creating and applying your success habits, acquiring the knowledge and skills you need, taking consistent inspired action and live your potential. When you look back over your life will you remember all the times you GOT OFF (Gave up) or the times you GOT ON?
