Successful vs Unsuccessful Habits

You Determine Your Habits and Their Strength

"Habit is stronger than desire." ― Dr. Mike Murdock.

Structure and Systems: 

For any organization to perpetuate its existence, it needs to have structure and systems in place. The structure is pretty much the design and architecture of the organization to create the value That meets its customers' requirements. It defines the pathway for relationships and communication. The systems are the programs that bring the organization to life. 

They are the bloodstream of the organization, its very life, its shine. Systems turn the lights on for the organization.

Habits Run Our Lives:

Habits are to humans exactly what systems are to organizations. We appreciate the power, efficacy, and invincibility of habits from the potency and invaluableness of systems. Habits are the routines we put in place to work out our dreams into fruition. Habits can either happen to us, or we happen to them. That is the difference between success and failure. 

Habits that happen or fall on us are those that tend to keep us confined in our comfort zone. They are set in place by our natural survival instinct, seeking to maintain the status quo, the familiar, the comfortable, the seemingly simple, and mostly, a false sense of safety and security. It is our reaction to external stimuli. Hence, the locus of control is external, not internal. These are mostly habits that result in failure.

Successful habits don’t come naturally. They don’t come of their own accord. They have to be thought into being. They have to be fashioned fit for purpose to achieve the declared objective(s) and target(s). They involve the use of human leverage (the mind). Our proactive responses in bringing to pass our dreams, aspirations, goals, and visions of our world. It is the use of our response-ability. Hence, it comes from a locus of control that is internal.
