“Keep your thoughts clean
For they soon become your words
Keep your words clean
For they soon become your actions
Keep your actions clean
For they soon become your habits
Keep your habits clean
For they make you what you are”
Habits can make you or break you
Practising good habits is none less than a blessing
The way we do one thing in life is the way we do most things in our life
We commonly hear many successful people saying about habits.
All the successful people always recommend you to follow the best habits because these habits matter a lot in achieving our goals.
We have to follow the habits of highly successful people and hard-working people
To begin with, the foundation of good work habits
The two most important things which we want to follow are
Focus requires clarity in the work which we are doing.
Then focus will help you in every step to achieve success.
When you think of focus think of a photographer adjusting his lens to keep the key subject sharp in the centre of the picture
To become a truly hard-working individual at work you must be continually adjusting your lense to be sure that what you are working on is the most important thing you could be doing at the moment to achieve your goal.
The second most important thing is the concentration
Concentration requires the ability to stay with the task until it’s 100% complete
Successful people understand that they must work in a straight line to get from where they are to where they want to go without a version or distraction.
To concentrate on a job until it is finished gives you a feeling of confidence and competence and mastery.
It develops you into a hard-working person and it gives you an experience of self-control so that you are in charge of your own destiny.
Apart from focus and concentration
It’s important to follow the daily habits of highly successful people
“That 95% of everything you do is a result of habit “
GOOD HABITS are hard to form but easy to live with
BAD HABITS are easy to form but hard to live with
How do you develop a good habit?
Almost everything you do from the time you get up in the morning is a habit so start to think about ourselves what would be the best habits to have now
Let me narrate to you a story to explain how easy it is to cultivate a habit
Once on the seashore, a small boy was playing with all the sand and pebbles
An old man approaches that boy and tells I’m 100% sure that in all the pebbles you see here, in that one of them is the biggest diamond you can ever find
The boy got all curious, how will I get to know about it asked the boy
The old man replied, it is simple- you just need to stare at each pebble for a few seconds and by the shine itself you will recognize it
The boy started doing it but eventually was getting confused if he had checked the certain ones or not
Then he started to examine each stone and throw it into the sea
After long, he actually found a diamond and was really excited but sub-consciously he ended up throwing it into the sea
Now, why do you think that happened?
Since he had thrown so many pebbles in the water, it had become his habit
It is always easy to inculcate a habit but to quit any bad habit is a really big task
So, you need to be sure of cultivating good ones only!
Here are some best habits which you can follow
- Set your goal daily -When you go to sleep, think about your goals for the coming day.
Make a list each day of all the goals.
When you talk to people, tell them about goals
“You become what you think about”
All successful people think about their goals most of the time. And that is how they design their day
- People-oriented -everything that you achieve in life is going to with the help or support or cooperation of other people.
So always think what is it that other people want and need from you
How can you help other people so they will what to help me back
For instance, If you are in the sales department think about your customers all the time and their needs
Successful people are very focused on the most important people in their worlds both personal and in business.
- Result-oriented -Result oriented people are always thinking about the most important things that they can do right now to achieve their most important results.
They always set priorities on the list.
Discipline yourself to work non-stop until you complete that one activity.
This simple technique has taken people from rags to riches all over the world.
Pick your most important task and start on it immediately and then discipline yourself to stay with it until its complete.
- Health-oriented -Think about your health.
Think about eating less food and better food
Think about daily exercise
Think about getting adequate rest
Remember this to be successful in our competitive world
- Self-discipline -It seems to be the foundation habit that makes everything else possible
The best definition of self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.
You see anybody can do if they feel good to do it
If you don’t feel like doing it and you do it anyway then you eventually develop the self-discipline and that makes everything else possible.
Start today to develop your habits right now
You can achieve your goals and your habit will definitely lead you to the steps of success
Whatever the situation is, start practising the habit every day until it becomes automatic and easy.
These are some of the very useful habits that you should adopt in your life to achieve your goals and to step towards the path of success.
Now let us see how we can develop these habits
To develop a new habit, the time period can be any length from a single second to several years.
The speed of new habit pattern development is largely determined by the intensity that accompanies the decision to begin acting in a particular way.
So many people think of becoming fit physically. But they keep on thinking but not ready to workout.
Then once the doctor will recommend them to lose weight and to do the diet. Otherwise, you will die
Then the individual will start a workout from that day only
This refers to a significant emotional experience something they called as SAE ( significant emotional event )
Experience of intense joy or pain combined with the behaviour can create a habitual behaviour pattern that may endure for the rest of a person’s life.
According to experts, it will take nearly 21 days to break or to form a habit
Magic of 21 days
