I got asked the other day at one of my events whether I had any specific set of habits I followed to become successful. If you’ve wondered the same, the answer is – I do. I have a set of routines and habits that I follow to make sure I make the most of my days…
What we choose to focus on determines in large part the meaning of our lives. We know neurologically that our focus multiplies and magnifies, i.e., makes the object of focus more important. Due to the brain’s tendency to form habits, repeated focus eventually brings together a set of things we do, which we experience as habits. These shape the day-to-day experience that forms the fabric of our lives by default…
Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.
What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray. Everything I write about – starts with better habits. When you learn to transform your habits, you can transform your life.
The important thing here is to identify your current habits and make sure you understand whether they are beneficial for you or are they just keeping you down..
Think about it, what are your current habits?
Do you believe you can grow with what you do in your hobbies?
If yes, then that’s amazing and you should spend more time and energy into it.
But if the answer is NO then you should start thinking about changing those habits..
I know it’ll be really difficult but it isn’t as tough as you think.
In fact I have this simple routine that I follow to make sure I’m adapting myself to any habit that I want… And today I’m sharing it with you..
Are you ready for it?
Well you should know that it is simple but it ain’t easy…
The process is called “TIP”(think, imagine, practice) and I use it to develop new habits..
Because habits are processed in the brain thousands of times faster than intentional behavior, the only reliable way to change an entrenched habit is to develop a new one and that is where TIP comes in use to me..
Think repeatedly about the desired change and write it out.
Imagine in detail how to overcome any barriers (usually guilt, shame, anxiety) to the desired change.
Practice the specific behaviors likely to lead to the desired change.
So start using the process of TIP to make sure you learn new habits to success…
