After reading a copy of Rich Habits — The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals, Tom Corley outlines several habits that distinguish the wealthy from the nonwealthy. Now although the book is predominantly aimed around wealth I still feel a lot of his original habits can be used towards health and wellness (after all the difference between health adn wealth is one letter). Also I got some from a recent article in Success magazine and added in a couple of my own.
I know not one approach operates for all people, so take the ones that resonate with you and get started ASAP. Here is Personal Trainer Exeter’s 21 Good Habits For Slaughtering Your Fat Loss And Back Pain!
1. Scheduling good daily habits.
Good habits are the foundation of any kind of success, after all Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
The difference between successful and unsuccessful people lies in their daily habits. Simply put, successful people have more good habits than they do bad ones, how do they define them as good and bad, well initially by asking a simple question of “how does this serve me?” or “Does this help or hinder my ability to achive X?”
You see “good” habits take them towards their goals / dreams / ambition, “bad” take the away.
In his book, Corley invites you to take out a sheet of paper and list your bad habits in one column and then invert each one to place under a new column for good habits. It should look like this:
Bad Habit/Good Habit
I watch too much TV. I limit myself to one hour of TV per day.
I don’t remember names. I write down names and remember them.
So for 30 days, follow the guidance of your new good habits list. You’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish.
