The Many Shades of Habits

Habits come in all shapes and sizes.

Some habits are more powerful than others and have more of an impact on your life than others. These types of habits are known as Keystone Habits. Keystone Habits have a ripple effect, triggering the formation of complimentary habits.

Some are stand-alone habits, or Ordinary Habits. These habits have very little impact on other areas of our lives.

Good habits create happiness, prosperity, success, sound health, strong relationships, increase your knowledge/IQ, create longevity or help promote an upbeat and positive mental outlook. Daily exercise, eating healthy, nutritious foods, reading to learn and volunteering with non-profits are examples.

There are also bad habits that create unhappiness, bankruptcy, contribute to failure, poor health, toxic relationships, ignorance, procrastination or make us negative and depressed. Watching too much TV, eating in excess, smoking, drinking in excess and not having control over your emotions are examples of bad habits.

Awareness and tracking of your daily habits is the key to changing them. Once you know what your habits are, you can change them. Adding new habits then becomes much easier and gives you a feeling of control over your life.

The circumstances of your life are dictated by your habits. Good habits, good life. Bad habits, bad life.

Never underestimate the awesome power of habits. The brain created them for a reason. They are a tool. Use this tool wisely. Your life circumstances will mirror your habits.
