Some people take the same route to work every day...if that route is blocked they don’t get to work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We are all creatures of habit. While we always face many different routes, sometimes we just cannot look ahead or see them. We become victims of our situations, stalled in the present, stalled in the problem. 

Mediocrity happens when we live under the wings of our bad-habits.

Bad Habits follow us like shadows. Bad Habits make us mediocre. We can replace Bad Habits with Good Habits...it's a matter of choice...and commitment & self-discipline.

Our pervasive habits take us both to and from our elusive goals.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

The more elusive the goal, the more pervasive the habit.

Pervasive habits are like governors...some are good while some are bad....some are 'on topic' while some are 'off, on a tangent'. 

Paraphrasing Napoleon Hill - the wind can take you east or west, depending on how you set your sail.

Problems are like icebergs: the biggest parts of them are below the surface.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We human beings have a curious habit. We tend to express problems in ways that conceal the real sources of our 'pain'. I suppose our egos make us play word and mind games...prettying up our real problems with make-up so other people will view us in [what our egos hope will be] a better light.

Habits come in two flavours: green for Good and red for Bad. When you Influence others, don't make them see red.

People Do Only 3 Things: Good Habits, Bad Habits & New Things.  [a link to over 300 posts About Habits]

There are only 2 ways to positively Influence others: (1) doing Good Habits & (2) doing New Things.

Why not show your Good Habits and, at least once in a while, try some well-planned New Things

If you want to influence others, influence yourself first. Make little changes for the better. Then share that good habit.

All great leaders make major changes to their way of dealing with 'their personal challenges' and their way of interacting with other people. 

All great leaders learn how to replace Bad Habits with Good Habits.

Self-control is magnetic.
