There is a great Hindu saying, “in your first 30 years you develop your habits and in your life thereafter your habits develop you”?
If you’re a glass half empty person it’s scary. We all have our vices and its disturbing to think what might become of us if these flourished over a long period of time (the quote intimates this might be likely).
On the other hand, glass half full people should be excited. It means that setting a few new habits are the secret to resetting the course of our lives.
So ask yourself a few questions:
What are my current habits which I’d like my future self & loved ones to benefit from?
What are my current habits that I’d like my future self & loved ones not to have to bear the costs of?
What should future life look like and what habits are required to get me to that point?
All of the above is fine but its possible we need to dig a little deeper though….
I once heard a quote that made me really stop and think. You won’t find it in any of the google searches & I can’t remember who said it to me. I remember though how certain the guy who said it was of its accuracy though. He said, “People always get what they truly want”.
If he was right, I don’t think he was talking about what our rational brains want. I think he is actually talking about what our inner selves truly want.
The reality is that some people don’t think they deserve to be successful…It might be in relationships, business, money, as parents or many other things.
So, look within yourself and ask, are you worth it?
If yes, reassess your habits, reframe what’s possible and then embark on your new journey.
If no, well why is that? The past is the past isn’t it?
