Develop New, Empowering Habits
Swapping a negative habit for a positive habit is a powerful success skill. However, there are times when installing a new habit is necessary, even if there isn’t a negative habit to replace. You’ll have a better understanding of how to create new habits by the end of this episode.
Here are the affirmation and journal prompts for this episode:
Each day is a new opportunity to practice good habits. I am excited by each day. Whatever I did yesterday is gone and no longer has any hold on me. Who knows what might happen tomorrow! Therefore, all I have is the present and I plan to make the most of it.
Part of making the best out of today is taking every opportunity to create habits that I want to have in my life. And habits do take practice to form. With each behavior I reinforce repeatedly, I start or continue a pattern. I want to only engage in actions that serve me, so I stay conscious about each thing I do.
With each intentional act I make, I gain confidence in my ability to effect positive change in my life. No matter what, I know that I can learn to make the best decisions possible, regardless of my circumstances.
If I find myself engaged in behaviors that are less than supportive of my highest vision of myself, I choose to take different actions next time. And as long as I am alive, there is always a “next time.”
Today, I am thankful for my good habits. I joyously put myself into every chance I get to make new ones. This is a daily practice for me since each day is a new opportunity for me to practice good habits.

Negative Habits And Their Devastating Effects
Negative habits can be devastating to your overall quality of life and your success. It’s important to understand how negative habits can create serious challenges.
Consider now all the habitual behaviors you exhibit that eventually lead to unwanted, negative situations in your life. Negative habits can produce results that are completely contrary to what you desire.
You wouldn’t consciously choose to keep yourself from what you truly want. But you keep repeating those habits anyway just because they are what they are: habits.
From the episode:
Success-Hindering Habits to Kick Out of Your Life Does it seem like success is eluding you? Success is only as close as you allow it to be. Surprisingly, it’s something that you have complete control over and can easily will into your life. If it’s so easy, you might wonder, then why don’t you have more of it? Have you stopped to think about why that is?
Start your analysis by looking within. Reflect honestly on your life—your behaviors, habits, and attitudes—to determine if there might be some things you may be able to do differently to achieve different results. There's a strong likelihood that there's some tweaking you can do in your quest to achieve success.
Your tweaking might include banishing the following success-hindering habits that are surprisingly common, yet insanely integral, in preventing you from being successful.
Success-Hindering Habits You Ought To Let Go Assess yourself. Give some thought to whether you're guilty of any of the following habits, and you'll likely be very surprised to realize that you are!
Self-doubt. By far, lacking self-confidence is the most damaging habit when it comes to your bid for success. The worst thing you can do is doubt your worthiness for a successful outcome. That particular mindset makes achieving anything very challenging. So instead of doubting yourself, affirm that you can do it:
Believe that you're capable of doing anything you set your mind to doing. Know that you’re worth every ounce of a positive outcome. Avoid closing the door on an opportunity because you don’t feel you'll do well at it.
Putting off getting tasks done will likely result in a less than favorable result. When opportunity knocks, answer the door! Instead of waiting until later, try the following tips:
Prioritize your tasks. Aim to complete tasks within the time you've allotted for them. Jump at every opportunity you get to complete a task.
Setting daily goals for yourself is probably something you already do, but you're likely wondering why it is you haven’t been able to meet those goals. A big hindrance is disorganization. Sometimes goals seem so attainable, but because there's no real plan in place to attain them, you end up missing out.
Lost focus. Losing focus of what you really want to achieve is a sure way to end up under-accomplished. Success doesn’t come just because you want it. Your mission should be to maintain focus on your goals so they don’t slip away unnoticed. Take an action each day, even if it’s small, to move you forward to your goal.
Be serious about the success you want to achieve. Make it one of your priorities. The commitment you have to building successful relationships is the same commitment you should have to achieving goals. So now that you have a look at what could possibly be hindering your ability to succeed, it's time to make some very real changes in your life and how you approach your targets.
There's nothing that can get in the way of you being a success story! All you need to do is adopt an attitude for success. Start with throwing away any negative habits that hinder your journey to success.
