The Power of Good Habits
“It takes years to develop a good habit but only one second to break it.” – Dr. Frank Gibson
The Power of Bad Habits:
Change is possible.
Strategies for setting rules of engagement:
Identify what you want and determine what you need to get there. Always know the difference between want and need.
Determine your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. Get others to do it on you like friends or coworkers.
Suck up on everything you can to fill any gaps that you see on the SWOT analysis.
Be open and fearless of any possibility in your life because nothing is constant in life but change.
Just because it’s a great passion, doesn’t make it automatically successful.
Be new everyday: “The old dog died last night.”
Develop a habit that every single day, you are re-born. This way, it allows you leave the baggage of yesterday. Everyday is a fresh start.
Dr. Gibson’s Major Takeaway:
Barriers are not obstacles but strategy definitions. Many people are successful because they knew their courage and perseverance were greater than any obstacle. There are only false barriers.
