The life you want for yourself is attainable. But it must start with your commitment.
Motivational speaker, Eric Thomas would often say at the start of his YouTube videos that ‘until you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, you will never be successful.’ Very true!
But before you jump into some kind of frenzy about how you need to change your life radically, know that all personal changes start with the formation of new habits.
A habit as you know is an action you repeat with some effort at the beginning that ends up becoming second-nature in the end.
So here’s a question to ask yourself: What new goal do you want to achieve in your life? Write it down.
Another question you need to ask is: What new habits do you need to form to achieve the goals you want to achieve?
You see, habits are the vehicles that convey us to our goals and dreams, whatever they are.
The import of this is very simple: When we set new goals, we need to accompany them with new sets of habits. For instance, if becoming financially free in the future is your goal, you should now have habits that set aside money from your regular income to invest for that future. I mean, buying stocks, angel investing or buying assets that can give you compounded returns should be a habit by now.
Or, if losing 50 pounds is your goal, walking a few miles should be something of a habit to you right now.
Whatever you want to achieve this year will depend on the habits you make. And see, if your New Year’s resolution is anything you really want to make come true, then this is the simple shift you have to make…Make new habits.
