If you could just pick one or two habits to create in the next few months – habits that will have the most impact on your life — what would they be?

.

Develop positive thinking. I put this first because I think it is the keystone habit that will help you form the other important habits. Positive thinking by itself will not lead to success, but it certainly goes a long way to motivate you to do the other things required.

-.
Exercise,  it is healthy and all that, but how exactly is it life changing?

.
It makes you feel better about yourself, and more confident. That leads to better success with other positive changes.

.
It reinforces the positive thinking habit – you need to think positive in order to sustain exercise.

.
It relieves stress and gives you time to think – this leads to better mental well-being in your life overall.

.
It helps with creativity.

.
Focus on one goal. Just as focusing on one task at a time is more effective, and focusing on one habit at a time is more effect, so is focusing on one goal at a time. While it might seem very difficult, focusing on one goal at a time is the most powerful way of achieving your goals. When you try to take on many goals at once, you are spreading thin your focus and energy – the two critical components for achieving a goal.


Some goals are ongoing ones – like blogging every day, or exercising every day. In those cases, turn them into habits – focus exclusively on turning the goal into a habit, until the habit is ingrained. Then focus on the next goal.

.
Kindness. Yes, kindness is a habit. And it can be cultivated. Focus on it every day for a month and you will see profound changes in your life. You well feel better about yourself as a person. You will see people react to you differently and treat you better, over the long run. It is karma.

.
No matter how old you are, it’s never too late to change your life for the better. Commit to starting today.
