Daily Habits- Are They Expanding or Diminishing Your Life Experience and Business Success?

By Beth Tabak

"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." Benjamin Franklin

One-by-one daily habits generate a full life. Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do." In the book The Power of Focus by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt it's stated that "up to 90 percent of our normal behavior is based on habits." In the past, habits formed that served you in some way"the time you go to sleep, how you react in situations, how you communicate, what you eat, how you focus your time, etc. Because habits run on autopilot we forget they are a major influence in the results we obtain. Are your daily habits still serving you? Here are 5 A's to support you to move beyond limits and make a long-term positive impact one day at a time.

Attention- First, pay attention to your daily actions. Are there any to improve, add, or eliminate? One positive, new, long term habit a month results in 12 rewarding habits in place by the end of a year, 60 after 5 years. Wow, imagine how your life might be different then! Secondly, pay attention to new possibilities.

Adjust- Make a list of the habits to develop over the rest of the year. What habits do you want to add or eliminate? Instead of eliminating a bad habit you may add a good habit. For example, instead of choosing to stop snacking you may opt to drink more water. The water fills you and automatically reduces snacking. Consider habits with long term results. Then set your plan for each month. You may choose easier habits to incorporate in the beginning. The clearer your focus the better so 1 or 2 a month is sufficient. If you choose more, select one as your primary habit. Tip: Choose what you want, not what someone else wants for you.

Activate- Get in motion by knowing your motivation. What will you gain by incorporating this daily ritual? How will you be different? How will you feel different? What results may you experience long term? Review your motivation daily while instilling the habit.

Accountability- Choose a structure to keep your new habit in front of you daily. It may be helpful to schedule it at the same time daily, add it at the top of your "to do list, or do it first thing in the morning. Tell the world what you are doing, find a friend to connect with weekly for support, or get a coach. You are welcome to pick up a complimentary Rewarding Daily Habits Chart for tracking purposes at which includes your motivation and support structure at a glance.

Action- Make a commitment to daily action. Don't just try it do it! Persevere when you miss a day because life gets in the way. You can do this.

"Motivation is what gets you started. Habits is what keeps you going, according to Jim Rohn. Begin creating habits that lead to extraordinary life experiences one habit at a time Starting Now.
