New Habits





Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.”
Germany Kent

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.
