Probably more than anything else, where I get in life will be the result of my habits. Effective habits are habitual ways of thinking and acting that bring me closer to my definite purpose each day. Bad habits, however, can easily derail me from my purpose and bring about drifting and defeat.
I have found it beneficial to have certain rituals, which, when practiced regularly, train my mind to help me instead of sabotaging me. Also, some action needs to be taken each day to bring me closer to my goal.
Remember, that your destiny ultimately depends on the habits you choose to create.
