“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” Will Durant in summation of an Aristotle idea.
At the beginning of every year we set goals for ourselves. Throughout the year, we may reminisce on those goals, as often they have become old friends. We’ve thought about the goals and have repeated them to ourselves, over and over again, year after year. An although the goals are truly a desired change, changing our habits are not.
So our first step should not be in directly attaining the desired result, but a desire in creating a habit, that after time, will produce the result desired. You get to create your new self with behaviors that if practice daily, begins to feel like the self that you want to be.
Just a thought…
