What are you practicing?
I don’t mean what are you training for, but what do you practice everyday?
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, said that successful people practice certain habits, they do things that will help get them closer to their goals and avoid doing things that will hold them back.
Therefore, it’s not just about the good things we do, but also the things we don’t do. The things we don’t do can be equally important, if not even more detrimental to reaching our goals.
Everything, EVERYTHING we do is practice.
Are you practicing good habits that will get you closer to the person you want to be or are you practicing bad habits that are stopping you from getting there?
If you practice going to the gym, or exercising 5 times a week – soon it will become habit.
Every time you eat vegetables instead of junk food you are practicing a good habit, and over time, with more practice, it gets easier.
Furthermore, every time you ditch the gym or eat the whole cake, you are practicing a bad habit.
Start recognizing your bad habits, but don’t spend too much time focusing on them. Pay enough attention to them so that you know when you’re doing them and can start practicing your good habits instead, but don’t dwell on them.
Remember, practice makes perfect… So what are you practicing?
