Your Success Habit-System

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
— Jim Ryun

habit — an acquired behavior pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary

Habits are a way our brains streamline activities that we perform on a regular basis. The actual process takes very little conscious thought–as you may notice when your tie your shoes, brush your teeth, or take a shower—the activities seem to happen almost automatically.

Once formed a habit can become a challenge to stop, as you may have noticed when you’ve tried to change an unwanted behavior.

The habits knit together to become a system and when that happens success seems to come easier and more consistently.

To begin building your success habit-system do this Action Step TODAY!

Action Step:

  1. What is the habit you want to build as part of your success system? (One of my favorites is: 10 phone calls by 10 AM)
  2. Name it.
  3. Break it down into small (very small) pieces and build on it every day.
  4. Track your activity each day to support developing the new habit.
  5. Say, “Yippee” when you do an activity to celebrate your progress.
  6. How does that feel?
