Successful Habits: Create 3 Today

If you do something over and over again it will become a habit. Why not aim to create successful habits to achieve success in life? What is the key difference between those who succeed and those who fail? I believe one of the biggest differences is self discipline and persistence.

Many people believe that if you do something for 21 days, it will become a part of your routine and a habit. Creating successful habits will bring success to your life. Don't panic, a successful habit can be learned. Try these tips on how to create successful habits to achieve success in your life.

1) Make a list of the areas/habits in your life you would like to change

Don't worry about how you are going to change. Think about the things that you need to change in your daily routine in order to be more effective. Be honest with yourself. This is for your own good so write down the changes you want to make in your life. Be positive and believe that you can do it. If you are the type who wakes up late, start waking up early. Set your alarm a little earlier each week until you reach the desired time to get up. Once you create the habit it will be easy to get out of bed earlier. If you wake up early you can do more with your day and hence be more productive.

2) Start Small

Pick two habits from your list that you want to change and make a daily and weekly plan to change them for the next three months. After three months, repeat the process for the next two habits. Be persistent. Successful habits need a lot of perseverance and self belief. Don't punish yourself if you fall off the wagon. Failure prepares us for success and makes us stronger. By starting small, the change will not overwhelm you too much.

3) Visualize how you will feel in a year. You will have 8 new habits!

Not bad! Imagine yourself a year from now. Eight new habits will mean invariably a totally different more positive life and daily routine. This will be the improved version of you. You will be reaching your potential. Imagine the things that you will achieve by doing your eight successful habits. In a year you may have achieved a lifelong ambition, you may have that car that you have been dreaming of! Living a happier life will be a very good reward for the time and effort you have put in to make the changes. Remember that changing your habits will also change your lifestyle. With a successful habit, your life will be ultimately better, more enjoyable and more successful.

Start today. Be all that you are capable of being.
