Habits Can Help Or Hinder You

I want to look at habits today, because so often when I help people who want to change and lose weight, they fall back on old habits of eating or not exercising.  

I have been reading up on habits recently.

One definition of a habit is this; 

A recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition

I wanted to highlight the FREQUENT REPITITION

Whatever self talk you say to yourself, what ever you believe to be true about you, can all be changed through self talk and repetition. 

Did you get that?  Read that line above again!


How  Habits Can Hinder You

I know when self doubt or FEAR creeps in, you forget all your fancy affirmations and just revert to what you been telling yourself for years right?  Well it is time to recognise and shake this bad habit off. 

Bad habits can lead to procrastination, putting things off, being known as unreliable, will proceed your reputation.

Will stop you from moving forward and achieving your full potential or your dreams. 

Think about it and carefully make a plan on how you can turn these bad habits into good ones.
We all have different goals to achieve and bad habits to break. List down the bad habits that you think can be a problem when you start your action plans.


How Habits can Help You

If you have a bad habit that stops you from moving forward in your life, then work on letting it go. 

Developing a good habit can set you up for so much more in your life.  

Create a new one.  21 days they say it takes to create a habit.  So if you can create positive affirmations to say to yourself for the next 21 days, you will definitely see your life turn around. 

So that being the case, what unconscious habits have you been forming? I have a short 5 minute video for you to help with creating daily habits by Brian Tracy who is well renowned for his books on developing Habits for Success.

Let your inner GPS guide you…

I am sharing with you a podcast today from my Radio Show, Mind Your Thinking.  Have you ever felt you had a 6th sense? You had a feeling either good or bad about a situation or thing? If you have and you acted on it, did it end up good or did it save you from harm?

Not sure if you have a 6th sense, then listen to my podcast.


Leave me your thoughts and let me know if you have ever experienced your GPS at work for you.


International Women’s Day!

I just love this day, being recognised and recognising some of my women entrepreneurs and my friends for the hard work and efforts that they do in raising families and putting together a business generating an income that’s making a difference to the lives of their families.

More and more women are looking to have a sideline business, or possibly a main business that they can do from their own home, one that will help them work around their family.

Know whether you realise it or not most of us women are really good at the following;


Know whether you realise it or not most of us women are really good at the following;

  • Organising
  • Time management
  • Encouragement/motivation
  • Creative
  • Entertaining
  • Great hostesses
  • Nurturers
  • Teachers
  • Great listeners
  • Great negotiators
  • Great peacekeepers
  • Good facilitators

The list is endless I could go on, but these are just some of the qualities that we as women have. Too often we underestimate ourselves and the value that we could provide out there in the marketplace. I encourage you all to take the time out to look at your transferable skills, the skills that we use at home with our family and our children, these are powerful skill sets that would an employer would pay great money in any corporate situation.

So why not to work for YOU Inc!

It was back in 1999 when I became redundant that I took a look at my skill set. It’s funny isn’t it, when you are reached with the situation such as redundancy, or losing your job that’s the time we choose to look deep within. I had to look at what I could do, what skills set I had that were transferable and what my job possibilities were. Honestly, you shouldn’t have to wait until then, we should be looking at our skill sets on a regular basis, we should be updating out resumes monthly with out achievements.

So, this week of International women’s day , Value yourself, take note of the transferable skills you have, and begin to dream again.
