“Successful people are simply those with successful habits.” – Brian Tracy
Admiral William McRaven gave an amazing commencement address at the University of Texas. He talked about making and inspecting a sailor’s bed every morning.
This may seem petty or just a military regulation, but when you hear it from Admiral Mc Raven, it becomes the definition of a positive habit.
It’s a way to start your day with an accomplishment and encourage you to keep tackling the tasks of your day.
It also reinforces the fact that little things in life matter.
If you can’t do the little things right, you will never do the big things right.
Several others have stated the importance of this small task in happiness and life.
Anyways didn’t your mom tell you to always make your bed!
For most people, outer order contributes to inner calm.
Then, sticking to any resolution, no matter what it is, brings satisfaction.
Keeping positive habits requires effort every single day.
A starting point can be drinking more water every day, then committing to a set number of workouts per week, then next committing to eating better each day.
Start small, it may mean making your bed for starters.
Then working through the next positive habit. But then it requires consistency to achieve greatness. We all know how it feels to see results, but those results don’t happen by going to the gym one time, or even one time per week.
It takes consistent effort every day.
Decide what you are committing to and do it consistently. See the difference it makes in your life!
Hope you have an amazing week!
