Be Your best.

Are you satisfied with a good job? Are you content with a good marriage? Are you truly fulfilled with an average life?

Big dreams are not achieved by being good but by being your best.  Notice I said “your best,” not necessarily “the best.”

How do you become your best? Simply put–habits, or, “aha bits.”  Bad habits produce negative lives. Good habits promote average lives. “Aha” bits allow us to create our best life.

Our worst habits include:

  • Skipping breakfast
  • Eating fast food
  • Not drinking enough water
  • Wasting time
  • Blowing off exercise
  • Vegging on TV and computer
  • Running late
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Spending more than we earn
  • Procrastination
  • Texting while driving
  • Smoking

You get the idea.

Here are three “aha” bits that help you become your best.

  1. Have a morning success routine. Get up early enough so that you’re not rushed. Read inspirational material, pray, meditate, read your success script, look at a vision board, and review your goals for the day. Then, eat a healthy breakfast, take your vitamins, drink plenty of water, exercise, and tackle the day with motivation.
  2. Focus on one task at a time. Research shows that we lose quality by attempting too many activities at one time. We have been duped into believing we can accomplish more by multitasking. If you are on the phone with someone, focus solely on them without scanning the computer, looking at your Facebook, or reading the newspaper. Habits are made out of “bits.” In the Guinness Book of World records there is a man that ate an entire bicycle one bite at a time. We need to break down each moment one task at a time.
  3. Create four new success habits a year. What if you created one positive habit each quarter of the year?  That is four habits a year and 20 new success habits in five years. For myself, I’m working on money habits with my wife and money coach. I’m focused on budgeting, paying myself first (investing), and giving to worthy causes. If you will learn four positive habits a year you will earn more money, enjoy loving relationships, be more healthy, achieve big dreams, and be your best.

Coaching points:

  1. Write down your worst habits.
  2. What four success habits do you need to start?
  3. What action steps do you need to change your habits?
