“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit” I absolutely love this quote and I don’t think it can get any realer than this. These sobering words should always remind us that success doesn’t come overnight and requires discipline-THOROUGH discipline.
Compared to when our parents and certainly when our grandparents were growing up, discipline is at an all-time low and sometimes looks like it’s nonexistent. Just take a look at your current habits and that of the people around you. When I take a look around me, it seems like people are ALWAYS trying to stop smoking or drinking but can’t seem to stop, ALWAYS trying to lose weight but can’t seem to, ALWAYS trying to start a business but keep procrastinating and many many more lame excuses. These types of problems are so rampant in our society today. I do understand some people are obese or underweight due to health issues such as thyroid etc., structural and institutionalized racism, societal pressures and genetics, BUT, I do believe that the majority of people with obesity, alcoholism, and other addictions are in the condition(s) that they are in due to the total lack of self-discipline.
No man is perfect but EVERY MAN at any given point in time is faced with a decision. No matter how miniscule a decision might seem, it has a lot of impact on one’s lifestyle (every decision you make either builds you or breaks you). This is where we as the perfectly imperfect humans we are need to constantly put ourselves in check in order to live an all-around healthy lifestyle.
Below is a list of steps that I have used to build good habits that stick and that have overtime developed into my lifestyle.
