A Sure-fire Way Get What You Want

My consulting business is a full-time job that, by the end of the day, leaves me feeling drained most days. 

Working on my business requires sitting at a computer writing, which is typically the last thing I want to do.

So, as a coach friend of mine suggested, I get up early and work on my coaching business first.

I tried recently waking up at 4AM to work on my coaching business.

It is amazing how much work you can get done in two hours of uninterrupted time – especially with a fresh mind.

That lasted about a week because my body made it clear that 4AM was too early to sustain any level of performance.

So I switched to 5AM, which ended up being a better time for me.

Brian Tracy, international best-selling author and speaker, says “Good habits are hard to form and easy to live with.  Bad habits are easy to form and hard to live with.”

I just learned something cool about Brian Tracy, actually.  He was born about three and half hours away from my house.  I had no idea he was Canadian, let alone an Atlantic Canadian!

Forming new habits, I find, is easier than breaking old habits.  The old ones tend to hang on longer than I wish.

Brian also tells us that breaking bad habits is more like replacing bad habits with good ones.

I understand this philosophy. There is only so much time in the day, so you can only do so much in a day and if you choose good habits each day, the bad ones eventually go away.

So Brian is saying that choosing good habits to replace the old ones is the foundation for getting what you want.

What choices will you make; what bad habits will you replace to begin your journey of success?
