In your everyday life you have developed habits that can hold you back. There is good news, you can also develop new habits that will propel you further than you've ever thought you could go. Ask yourself what habits are holding you back from your ultimate goals? Think of your daily routine, what are you doing that you know is a total waste of time? These little tiny things may seem insignificant to you but they add up as time wasters that ultimately hold you back.
One habit I am presently working on is smiling more when speaking on the phone. This is such a small thing to do but I often forget to do it when speaking to customers and clients. This one tiny act can change the whole relationship I develop with people on the other end of the line. Once I master this small habit, I will develop another and another. It gets me out of my comfort zone.
What can you do to get out of your comfort zone? We all think the habits we need to develop are huge changes, this is where you are wrong. Develop habits one small act at a time, your mind will become addicted to reaching new tiny goals and habits.
1. What habit have you been meaning to quit?
2. Pick one small act that will get you on the path to changing that habit.
3. Start small, tackling everything at once tends to lead to failure.
