6 Wise Ways to Make Success a Habit
By Sandy Schroeder
As you look to the future and consider choices, there are a few simple steps that may make success a lot easier for you and your family. Concentrating on the basics that create a natural balance may make everything easier.
Input lots of new information – Moving ahead may be a lot easier when you get into the habit of feeding your mind every day. Look for new books, authors, and online sources that raise questions and invite participation. Reach out to find more local contacts. New ideas can be contagious, generating unexpected opportunities. Keep a running list of classes, training, and people that you want to explore.
Make everything you eat healthy – To stay active, start upgrading your shopping choices. Hit a farmer’s market, fresh produce stand, or fresh fish market and keep looking for new recipes that make the most of your choices. The less junk food you eat, the less your body will crave. You may like the results as you drop pounds and feel more energetic.
Keep every day active – Making 30 minutes of exercise a day happen can stimulate your mind and your body. Some of my friends say they have their most creative ideas when they are out walking. Others say a morning run makes the whole day better. Keep looking until you find the fitness solution that’s fun for you. Bike after work or walk the dog with your kids and catch up on the day.
Make time for the people in your life – Finding the go power to work hard and do more usually begins when we are satisfied with life. Friends and family often help to create that satisfaction. Take the time for lunches, at-home dinners and weekend getaways to make the connections that make everything else seem worthwhile.
Keep your work moving – Keep looking for the things you enjoy most about your work and reach out to make more connections. Grooves are good, but they can always benefit from fresh input.
Keep the door open to the future – As you stay active and eat healthier, you may have the energy to do more. That could mean taking new classes, trying totally new things, or volunteering to help others locally or around the globe. Be open to the challenges out there and enjoy the results.
