“Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always lead to success.”
~Robert J. Ringer~
First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not…Habit is persistence in practice.
“Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to
get out of.”
Most of our failings are habits we have allowed ourselves to form and keep. We will probably never be perfect, but we can be less imperfect.
~Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of the Al-Anon Groups, 1980
“The more severe the pain or illness, the more sever will be the necessary changes. These may involve breaking bad habits, or acquiring some new and better ones.”
“First we make our habits, then our habits make us.”
~Charles C. Noble~
“The thought manifests as the word The word manifests as the deed The deed develops into habit And habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care, And let it spring from love born out of concern for all beings.”
“Winning is not a sometime thing it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.”
Habit is either the best of servants or the worst of masters.
“Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his lttle finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.”
