The Power of Smart Habits

" Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."
~Jim Rohn~

Individuals who experience sustainable success in life share a common trait; they develop smart habits. Their ability to foster situational awareness in diverse environments enables them tocontribute value by leveraging their skills, knowledge and talents towards the achievement of objectives deemed most important in any given environment.

Our capacity to contribute to the success of our families, churches, workplaces and communities is directly tied to our personal habits. Developing smart thinking and smart behavioral habits combined with situational awareness are keys to our well-being in life.

Progress is always a process. Your success in life in any area of your life is directly tied to the quality of your decisions, the management of everyday challenges and opportunities and the implemenation of actions necessary to achieve specific objectives and goals.

In my book Success Becomes You Goal Achievement Workbook, I outline the DRIVE 5 Advantage, the five step framework that enhanced smart thinking and smart behavioral habits which empowered me to create an award winning leadership career after starting as an entry-level employee with Marriott Hotels.

The development of smart habits is expressed in the following quote:

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…
