Creating a habit of Right Action – Day 5

Hi there!

As with all great accomplishments in life, time, commitment, energy, focus, hard work and lots of love is required.   And creating a new success habit is a great accomplishment!

Let’s look at that ‘focus’ word. For those of you who drive, imagine leaving your home and traveling to a chosen destination. Let’s say it’s a place you’ve not been before.

What would you need? Some directions for sure…however received. In order to get where you’re going you’d need to listen to or read those directions, being sure to follow carefully.

As you travel, a picture of the place will no doubt be in your mind. Even if you opted to stop along the way, IF you really needed or wanted to get to this destination, you would get back on your path, to complete the journey.

To follow the directions, keep the destination in mind and stay on the path you would need to FOCUS your mind and attention on the desired goal.

This is what you are reminded to do today. It’s day 5 of a second round of habit forming, 21-day journeys…you COULD be loosing focus a bit.

DON’T! 🙂 Really, hold your focus.  Creating new habits takes great focus and attention to the details.

Focus on:

  • Where you’re headed
  • Why you started the journey
  • What the benefits are – both along the way and particularly WHEN you achieve your desired goal.
  • What you need to be doing DAILY to get there – at the desired time

Be sure as well to focus on your source of power, inspiration and peace. I’ve found that by focusing on my source – God-Love, the results cease to depend on my much smaller ability as a lone individual.  I get to plug into a universal and unlimited source of infinite power.

Stay focused, enjoy this journey and keep doing your right actions.

Have a magnificent day!

Love & Light

The #1 Key to Success in Creating a New Habit

Hello!

Think of all the times you have made up your mind to create a new habit, or do a new thing. Quickly, get a vision, without much thought.

Got that storyline in mind?

Now imagine a quilt, representing the totality of your efforts at starting   new thing things.

Can you see the sweep of  tapestry created by all these  various efforts and attempts?

Is the quilt a lovely quilt?  All squares joined up beautifully?

Or, are there holes in your quilt representing those projects not completed, those habits not created? Lots of holes or just a few?

What is the reason – no I don’t mean what ‘happened’ to stop your progress and produce these holes.

I mean, what is the REASON your projects stopped before they ended and your habits never quite got formed?

What is it about YOU and your approach to life – work and play- that produced these  results?

Stay here with me.  Don’t get all caught up in self recriminations.  No time for beating up and indulgent pity parties.

Think clearly – as if you’re thinking about a friend’s life.  What’s one thing about how you approach new projects or habits that could explain the holes in your quilt?

Consider this:               A  C  C  O  U  N  T  A  B  I  L  I  T  Y

Is this the possible explanation for all the starts and stops?

Were you accountbale to yourself or to someone else?

Would that have made a difference in your outcomes?

Being accountable is a cornerstone of successful action.  Completing a project or creating new habits is practically impossible without it.

Taking consistent action is how habits are created.  Discipline is required to take consistent action.  Discipline is automatic accountability. It’s a habit of accountability.

So, if we work on developing the habit of  accountability, we will become a disciplined person.  Then, creating new habits can happen at at will.

How do you build the accountability habit?  Start small.  Find something to do for 21 days straight and do not let yourself off the hook if you slip up.  Have a consequence (equally small) ready and waiting and be sure to implement.

Try this and let me know how it goes.
