Top 10 Most-Positive Habits of Life
“Good habits, once established are just as hard to break as are bad habits”
Habits have a very important role in your life. The character of a person is determined by his habits. You can start seeing the benefits of most-positive thinking in your life when you apply positive thinking consistently. You can and must make positive thinking one of your good habits and enjoy a better quality life.
1.Set goals. Did you know that the most successful people all share the common positive habit of goal setting? A study was done to determine the importance of goal setting. College students who had gone on to achieve great success in business were asked to list their habits. The students who had made a habit of setting goals were in the top 3% of earnings in the population! It is almost impossible to overestimate the value of goal-setting as a positive habit. Goal setting is simple, yet 97% of the population never do it. By making goal setting a positive habit, you can start placing yourself in the top 3% of the population of successful people.
2. Stop worrying. Worry occurs in your imagination, not in reality. Worry is a function of fear, and fear is your subconscious’s way of telling you that it is uncomfortable with something and your subconscious will make you miserable until the problem goes away… but the problem is that worrying doesn’t solve anything. The quickest way (in fact the only way) to resolve something that bothers you is to act in the present, in reality, outside the context of your fear. Inside its context… you could wrestle with it forever, and it will only make you unhappy and powerless.
3. Appreciation. It is easy to take things for granted, especially if you’re not exactly where you want to be in life. But, even when you’re not where you want to be, there is still plenty to be grateful for. I try to take time each day to reflect on what I’ve accomplished, what I have in my life, and just appreciate all of it.
4. Don’t be afraid by failure. In order to succeed, first you have to try. If your fear of fiasco is greater than your desire to succeed, odds are good that you won’t try, and therefore cannot succeed.
What’s the worst that could realistically happen, and how much of it is in your head?
Again, this becomes an exercise in spotting how much your ego rules you. The idea here is to become the person whose ego serves them- because your ego is an incredibly powerful and amazing part of you- but it can be a cruel master if you choose to serve it.
5. Find a good mentor. Everyone needs at least one good role model. A mentor is a person that one can look up to, usually seen as a trusted counselor or guide. All the successful people I have ever known have had a mentor at some point in their life, someone who taught them and encouraged them to take risks with new experiences.
6. Start everyday with a positive mind-set. Upon awakening make the commitment to face the day and whatever it brings with a positive frame of mind. Prepare yourself for the fact that everything may not go smoothly or as planned, and be willing to handle any challenges you’re faced with (we know there will be some).
7. Practice gratitude.
Be grateful for and focus on the good things you have in your life. Many of us get in the habit of sweating the “small stuff” and let it get in the way of appreciating the important things – family, friends, good health, freedom and the many opportunities we enjoy. When we let that happen it downplays the fact that we really do have much to be grateful for.
8. Cultivate patience. No matter how motivated you are, things do not always happen immediately or when you want them. Therefore it is absolutely imperative to develop great patience, and allow your goals to manifest naturally.
9. Always learn something new. Make a conscious effort to keep your brain active and functioning at optimum levels. Learn a new vocabulary word or a new piece of information as often as you can. It will keep you sharp and alert.
10. Respect and treat your body right. Your body will treat you as you treat it, so it’s vital that you get out with it and keep it healthy. What’s more, exercise reduces stress, helps you rest better, sharpens your mind, lengthens your life, and improves its’ quality
With exercise, your body becomes stronger, your energy levels go up, your bones become stronger… and with an active sense of play, exercise can be just plain fun. It doesn’t necessarily follow that more is better. Too much can be worse than not enough- it can lead to injuries and other health problems.
