    The power of habits

    Do you automatically brush your teeth right before bed? Or instinctively grab your phone moments after opening your eyes in the morning? Do you check your emails as soon as your computer boots up? If you’re nodding along, then you already know how powerful habits can be. 

    Habits are actions that are almost involuntary. You just do them without second thought or too much effort – no need for constant reminders. That’s why habits are like superpowers. You get things done without exhausting your physical and mental energy reserves. 

    Although you might not be aware of it, you’ve already built a bunch of habits. The catch, though, is that not all your habits align with your best interests. Some could even be leading you astray, pulling you further from your goals. That’s why building new and positive habits is a must if you want to unleash your hidden potential and see yourself grow. 

    But beyond self-improvement, there’s another reason why habit-building is so important. Your willpower – the fuel that helps you perform certain actions you think are good for you – is limited. It can only get you so far, and is rarely enough to help you reach your goals. 

    The good news is that habits don’t rely on willpower. With habits, difficult actions eventually become easy because they’re automatic – you don’t have to force yourself to do anything. And the more positive habits you have, the bigger strides you can make toward your goals without depleting your willpower reserves. 

    In fact, the hardest part is choosing a new, positive habit and implementing it. But that’s exactly what we’re about to cover, so stay tuned.
