Habits: Do You See Them as Good or Bad?

Motivation,Habit,Love,Gain,Power,Success, Individual,Drive,Enthusiasm,

Some people look at habits as typically “bad,” but the truth is they can be the greatest contributor to a person’s success as well. You might not realize how much of your day-to-day activities are actually run on “auto-pilot,” but it is said that it can be as much as 75%. I know you’re probably saying, “That’s a little much don’t you think?” But when you think about all the things you do just while waking up and getting ready in the morning for work, most of it is a learned behavior and not a conscious choice on your part.

That being the case, I think habits are an aspect of our character, abilities, etc., that should be closely examined and therefore exposed. Realization or acknowledgement of a problem is the first step in changing it. Below is a great article I read a long time ago, but recently ran across it and thought it was well worth posting here to hopefully light up some bulbs over some people’s heads. Enjoy. 🙂

Habits,Choice,Destiny,Fate,ControlHalf the things you do might just as well be turned over to me.
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed; just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.

Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then…do it automatically.
I am your servant.Knowledge,Desire,Skills,Habits
Who am I?
I am a habit.
