The 25 Habits for Your Success
Ultimately, everything we do is a result of our habits. Habits are a gift, a mechanism to our minds and bodies that allow us to operate on autopilot so that without thinking we can move through all the multi-level and complicated facets of our lives. Ultimately, they give us freedom and create a life that is manageable and relatively stress free.
Our ingrained habit is to notice what is wrong rather than what is right in life. We forget all that we can be grateful for such as our sight and hearing, the loving people in our lives, the fact that we are still alive and breathing, etc.
Gratefulness brings us to the understanding that everything we have is actually a gift to us and that nothing and no one can be taken for granted as it or they can be easily taken away from us.
In every circumstance, there is an opportunity to find something for which we can be grateful no matter what the situation. Life happens for us, not to us.
We all feel grateful on many special occasions, but what we have not done is cultivate a habit of being unconditionally grateful at all times. Until we develop this Habit, we will not be able to gain the full benefits of this foundational and most important Habit for true success.
The consequence of this amazing Habit is that it literally makes us stress free by lifting the huge burden we carry of unnecessary, ill-conceived expectations. Gratefulness refreshes us, like having a bath and minimizes, if not eliminates, our insecurity-led egos.
Positive thinking, an essential framework for creativity and success, is the most important outcome of a grateful mindset. It is this mindset that not only gets us out of our doldrums, but nurtures team spirit, empowers courage, helps overcome hurdles and setbacks, and energizes and provides sustaining power against all odds. In short, it sets us up for true and long-term success.
Next Habit Practicing self-integration with the Oneness paradigm
Our personal integrity is the foundation of long-term success both in our personal, as well as our business lives. However, until we reveal our true identity, we can’t have integrity. We tend to believe that we are separate beings, but the truth is that we are not separate from each other, we are an inseparable part of each other and the bigger universe. This is called Oneness, which simply means that I cannot be happy and successful unless those around me are happy and successful.Learn Habit 2
