The Secret To Success In Life Can Be Found In Your Habits

If the sole common denominator of all successful people across all fields – athletes, lawyers, politicians, physicians, business leaders, musicians, sales people – is habit, and they are the best at what they do because of their good habits, then maybe it’s time to start reevaluating yours!

Happiness = Success

Habits are important. Up to 90 percent of our everyday behavior is based on habit. Nearly all of what we do each day, every day, is simply habit. We all have good habits and bad habits, but if nearly 90 percent of what we do each day is habit, the only way to effect real change in our lives is to effect real change in our habits.

~ Jack D. Hodge, author of The Power of Habit

The American Journal of Psychology (1903) defines a “habit, from the standpoint of psychology, [as] a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience.”

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could decide to do something and then follow through with ease, like starting to go to the gym, practising the piano, working on your business, or doing your finances every Friday before the final demand letters drop through the letterbox?

And not just get it done, but learn to enjoy it and take pleasure in what was once a chore and a bore.

POWER Habits = Success

Habits aren’t just about what we do and don’t do, good or bad on a regular basis either.

Habits are what build our self efficacy, our belief that we can be successful when carrying out a particular task and are capable of exercising control over our own activities.

After decades of research, it seems the only true difference that can be found between highly successful people is a routine of beneficial, effective habits.

If the sole common denominator of all successful people across all fields – athletes, lawyers, politicians, physicians, business leaders, musicians, sales people – is habit, and they are the best at what they do because of their good habits, then maybe it’s time to start reevaluating yours!

  • Do you know where you spend your time every day?
  • Do you have your daily habits written down?
  • Do you have a system to measure the productive output of your habits?
  • Are you aware of your bad habits and what are you doing to limit the destructive effect of them in your life?

Tenacity

~ Louis Pasteur

Do you have good or bad habits?

Do you know what your good and bad habits are?

  • Do you sleep in late very often ?
  • Do you swear unnecessarily
  • Do you still smoke cigarettes?
  • Do you gamble too much?
  •  Are you still eating processed and sugary foods?
  • Do you bite your nails?
  • Do you watch too much TV?
  • Are you always on social media?
  • Do you spend too much?
  • Are you always putting of getting regular exercise?

According to research by Dscout, the typical mobile phone user not only looks at, but touches their phone 2,617 times every day, and the addicts in the top 10% interacted with the phone more than 5,400 times per day.

Social media is now considered by experts to be as addictive as alcoholism and drug addiction. Using fMRI scans they have discovered that getting a like on Facebook or a share on Instagram stimulates the reward circuitry of your brain!

Maybe you don’t think some habits are that bad, but ask yourself if they could be contributing to leading you further away from reaching your goals in life.

How do you change your habits?

The steps to changing how you build and maintain a habit are much simpler to achieve than you would imagine.

If you have been trying to maintain a habit or reach a goal for a while and haven’t managed it, then it is probably because you are stuck in one of the 6 Stages of Change as per the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior Change first introduced by Prochaska & Diclemente in 1984.

(watch a video explaining the Transtheoretical Model of Behavior by clicking here)

Their work has a 55-75% success rate in helping people overcome life threatening bad habits like:

  • Alcoholism
  • Drug addiction
  • Smoking
  • Overeating

Without understanding and using systems like the Transtheoretical Model most people can stay stuck forever thinking about starting a new habit, like losing weight or going to the gym, and then giving up again or quitting altogether.

POWER Habits offer you the chance to start and maintain good habits and when used in conjunction with the Telos Lifestyle Revolution training you are almost guaranteed success.

There is no drug in the world that is more successful than the Transtheoretical Model and if there was one it would be a miracle drug.

Balancing the Motivation Equation

Once you know where you are stuck in the stages of change, you need to build up your desire to reach the goal or maintain a habit and work on reducing the potential obstacles that can come along and trip us up along the way.

This is where we turn to the Nobel Prize winning Motivation Equation by Dr Piers Steel:

Motivation training equation

Piers Steel discovered the 4 elements that together decide if you are going to be motivated to do something enough to succeed at it or achieve it.

Expectancy and Value

If there isn’t enough expectancy related to your habit or goal or you haven’t placed enough value on it being important enough to you, then you aren’t likely to continue doing what you need to do to succeed and achieve it.

Impulsiveness and Delay

Likewise, if you don’t manage the distractions that might come along or if it just seems like any of the potential benefits and rewards you might receive for achieving goal might take forever to appear in your life, then once again your chances of giving up on your goal are extremely high.

The ONLY way you are going to maintain your habits, continue working to reach your goal and achieve success is to get the balance of the motivation equation to swing in your favour so that there is a lot more Expectancy and Value and a lot less Impulsiveness and Delay.

Do you need a coach?


Everyone Needs a coach!

~Bill Gates

Everyone needs to be accountable to someone to make sure they do what needs to get done.

Also, habit creation and maintenance isn’t taught at school, or university for that matter.

POWER Habits offer you the same system that drives people to excel at what they do and reach their goals while remaining happy and healthy in 7 free online lessons or via 1 to 1 personal coaching, which also provides the accountability that most people also need to ensure success.

Those people who find success easy aren’t any different or better than you, they are only successful because they have a better system for building and sustaining habits.
