The Secret to Making Your Habits Stick


People struggle to make habits stick to one simple reason: They make a real commitment instead of worrying. Until you are emotionally committed to a particular practice, you will not see it clearly.

Here’s how to put one together for use with your emotions.

Identify your goals.
Have your priorities become part of your daily routine? Are they habits right now?

Years ago, I would get up just in time to bathe, shave, and go to work. But at the age of 32, I decided to make an emotional commitment to start my own company. I made a habit of getting up 15 minutes early to start writing. Quickly, 15 minutes turned into three hours. Why? Because all my filth ended by fulfilling my dream.


Fighting where to start? These four trends will take you to higher ground by 2020:

→ Manage your finances. Hit down your cash flow and put systems in place to grow an active business.

→ Create a mentor board that will help you stay in the study. Meet with them every 90 days, and give them 30-, 60- and 90-day updates.

→ Learn other industries with ideas you can use in your space. If you look at DoorDash, GrubHub and Uber Eats, you can see how companies look at what another industry is doing and apply it to their business model.

→ Find people who challenge you mentally. If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.

Refresh your brain.
Some habits are more difficult to maintain than others. For example, I hate exercise. I have started a career in medicine to earn a living. I put my brain back in order to feel emotionally connected to work that doesn’t come naturally to me.


Edit the program.
Decide to be the master of your time and energy. What you do with these two resources will determine the outcome of your life. Time is the most valuable asset in the world, yet it tends to let us slip into things that do not move us forward. Commit to your future and point out your future.
