Inspiring Quotes of the Week...
Commentary by Peter Shepherd
As Stephen Covey says, "Our character is basically a composite of our habits. Because they are consistent, often unconscious patterns, they constantly, daily, express our character."
Our habits take time to learn. What about bad habits that we've acquired? Abraham Hicks said, "Those old habits don't have to be erased, they just become replaced by a new habit that is more in vibrational harmony with who you are and what you want."
We drift into habits and they become our behavior - who we are, from other people's point of view. But they do not define who we are: we can change our habits.

It requires conscious effort and mindfulness, but you can do it. Three to four weeks of practicing a new desirable behavior every day is all the time you need to make a new good habit. If you can make it through this initial conditioning phase, it becomes easy to sustain thereafter. Indeed, good habits are just as addictive as bad habits but much more rewarding.
