Where are your good habits hiding?
Last year I shared a quote from Nathaniel Emmons that said, “Habit is either the best of servents, or the worst of masters.” And I went on to talk about bad habits and how they can be changed. But if you truly wanna do that, you’re gonna have to do something else. And it’s scary. It’s tough. And almost all wannabe entrepreneurs and business owners won’t do it. Because you’ll have to find your good habits.
Yeah, that’s why it’s scary and tough to find your good habits.
Because they tend to hide in those dark corners of your comfort zone. Sort of like the TV remote, when it drops down in the sofa. Changing channels and volume was so easy just a couple of minutes ago. But now you gotta play a game of hide and seek. And you might have to actually get up, look around, then dig around, and find the remote…in the “last place you looked” of course.
Just like that remote, a good habit might be hiding in the last place you look. YOU. Yes, you. Your bad habits are what keep you on that sofa. Or lying in bed till noon on Saturdays. And you might be so tied to your routine you don’t even notice your downhill slide.
But one day you wake up with a feeling of dread.
Gotta go back to that same job in the same place for the same hours again today. And even your job becomes a comfort zone. It might be boring and a drain on your very soul. But you can just go, do what you’re told to do, and go home. All those weighty decisions can be left at work. Because you can go home, at the end of the day, eat dinner, and binge on your favorite Prime Video series.
But why do I say your good habits are hiding in there?
Because, even though this’ll sound way too simple, you can just decide not to keep doing those things. Stop doing the very things that keep you in that boring, soul-draining job.
Get out of your comfort zone full of bad habits. Change your TV time to BB (business building) time. Those same hours spent on movies could be spent on video trainings. And instead of looking for your remote, you could be looking for a pencil or pen to take notes.
Each time you replace a dead-end activity with a creative, potentially business-building idea, AND take action, you turn a bad habit into a good one. But remember, you’re an adult. No one else is gonna do this for you. And no one else should.
But that doesn’t mean you have to go it alone.
In fact, helping go-getters and risk takers change habits is part of what I love so much about my RondaReady business coach CRM system. And it includes video training, like I mentioned before. Plus, you’ll be building a system that’ll turn your good habits into great results.
So, when you’re really, really ready to get ready, get RondaReady and…
