“You will never change your life until you change something
you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your
– John C. Maxwell
The quote above is something that I have believed for a long time. Which is why I have written quite a bit on the topic of habits and how important it is to be aware of our habits and take control of them. Otherwise they will control us.
Along the same lines is the importance of the slight edge. This is where making small almost insignificant choices daily create the makings of success slowly one day at a time, building on each day to create a larger success over time. Clearly using the slight edge is how to successfully bring a new habit to life.
Each choice that we make is important even if it seems infinitely insignificant. But as those choices are made over and over they have a compound effect on our lives. This is something that successful people are keenly aware of and unsuccessful people aren’t.
Do you want to be one of the successful people or one of the unsuccessful people? If you want a life lacking in success then you needn’t read further.
But if you desire to live a life of success then what follows is for you!
The Habit Building Challenge
I am in the process of putting together a month long Habit Building Challenge for the month of January. I am putting together activities for each day of the month of January to help solidify any habit that you wish to build.
The activities will take less than a half an hour per day depending on how much time you choose to spend on the day’s activity. Each day’s activity is designed to give you tools to turn your desired habit into a real habit by the end of the month if you are consistent and participate each day.
I chose the month of January because that is a common month for people to be focused on new goals and resolutions. It’s a fresh new year and even if you don’t set resolutions or goals you are likely looking ahead to the year with hopes for where you will be by the end of the year.
A new habit will greatly assist you in going where you want to go because habits are something that you don’t put much thought into as they are natural!
You’ve got close to a month and half to decide on what habit you would like to build. You may want to:
- Eat healthier
- Exercise regularly
- Reach a specific rank or level in your company
- Use afformations or affirmations daily
- Write 3-5 blog posts per week
- Improve your blog statistics
- Replace negative thinking with positive thinking
- Drink water instead of pop or coffee
- Connect with more people daily
- Build your business
- Stress less
- Spend more time with kids, spouse or a friend
- Educate yourself
- Wake up earlier
Are you up for the challenge? Please post your thoughts in the comments section and please share ideas of other habits to be built to give ideas to others.
The more people that participate, the greater the support that everyone will have leading to a greater likelihood of success!
I will also give more information on the challenge as we get closer. There will be blog posts, emails, freebies, discussion, and support for all involved! After this challenge everything will be packaged together for purchase – but this challenge is totally free and participants can keep everything to use over and over again with each new habit that you want to create!
Get ready to start next year off on a successful foot!
