Far too often a good intention goes no further than the original thought to do something different or better.
The best way to stay on top of your intentions is to enlist “Habit Power.”
Habits are those things you do on a regular basis without giving any thought to them.
You can make the important things you want to do or achieve as simple as brushing your teeth.
The most important key to doing this is repetition. Anything that you do over and over gets easier and easier to do. This is true with both good things and bad things. Many people get very good at some very bad things.
You have no doubt heard the phrase, “Practice Makes Perfect.” Actually, “Practice Makes Permanent.”
Think about those things that you are doing habitually and set out to build some new and better habits that will make success as easy as brushing your teeth.
If there is something in your life or business that you want to change, identify the behavior that will lead to the desired result and then make your progress visual. If there’s something you want to impact, measure it. To impact it even further measure it more often.
Make your goals The Boss. Make your goals visual and track your progress towards them, ideally EVERY DAY. People who know where they are going are far more likely to get where they want to be than those who simply take what comes their way.
Attitude plus Behavior equals Results. To change your results, change the factors that lead to that desired result. While there may be many other factors, these two are the most important and they are fully within your control.
See it; Do it; and Get it!
Once you identify the thing you wish to change or impact, identify the behavior needed to accomplish it and then simply DO IT; or as NIKE say’s, “DO IT NOW!”
Affirmations are powerful. Remind yourself daily by tracking your results. If losing weight is the goal, tell The Boss, “Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.”
And remember that the Control Tower is sitting on your own two shoulders. You have control over your destiny.
