You are the sum of your habits

“We become what we repeatedly do” — Stephen Covey.

Habits and not actions drive most of our activities. For good results, always audit your habits, pick the good ones, and get rid of the bad habits.

A habit is a regular tendency that takes time to give up. Good habits lead to success, while bad habits lead to failure.

For you to adopt good habits, you need to have self-awareness. This will help you to understand your life behavior patterns. You can start a self-awareness program by asking yourself questions such as, who am I? What are my aspirations? What are my current habits? If you want to lose weight, you have to follow the recommended diet and exercises. If you’re going to be a marathoner, you have to keep a daily running routine.

“Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character.” ―Stephen Covey

Keep tab of your bad habits. They will ruin your life and lead to regrets. For example, if you want to lead a healthy life, you should kick out bad habits such as excessive drinking, smoking, and the use of hard drugs. You should also eat the right foods and keep your body hydrated. One bad habit leads to a myriad of bad results. For example, a drunkard cannot be productive after a drinking spree. This will then lead to loss of good jobs, family, and financial stability. Stress levels will go up, and alcohol-related diseases will check-in and eventually lead to death.

Dropping bad habits has to be intentional. This is personal decision without any outward pressure. Start small and be consistent. Always prune a lousy practice before picking a good one.

Habits shape our lives. They grow stronger each day, and eventually, they become automatic. For example, if you develop a habit of spreading your bed every day, you will end up doing it without struggling or thinking about it.
