In recent years, I have been aware of which is one of the main problems that people do not achieve their professional and personal goals. It is the inability to generate a repetitive positive behaviors, which in turn generate habits sustainable in the long term.
The short-termism and emergency management in which we are installed in business are two fundamental obstacles. The search of the immediate reward and give in to pressure from peers, customers or bosses, prevent us build and design a better future. Day after day we continue to increase our stress and our inefficiency.
What is the path to success?
1. Challenging this widespread trend, and dare to challenge the status quo. If we are not faced with courage, overcoming many pressures and demands of our hostile environment, be impossible to begin to open a halo of light, where between clarity.
2. We must clarify what behaviors and attitudes help us achieve our goals (in the event that we are clear. Otherwise, we must start from scratch to reflect on what our goals and priorities).
3. Define daily actions, weekly and monthly, or come to help us in achieving these goals. This third point is key, because what we usually do is set ourselves a specific action, and we think that action will change things. Gran error.
Conversely, if you define an action to be performed every day, a small, simple action or task, and then makes you an action or task to perform once a week, and another once a month, you will be laying the foundation of a positive habit. A habit is when we no longer employ an effort to do something (behavior, the task action), has automated our brain so that we do and point.
The key to success is to create habits, and the key to this is to repeat and repeat actions or tasks, our brains go to internalizing and increasing our self-confidence to see progress and advances.
If you want to achieve a goal, defines an action to perform daily, an action to perform every week, and an action for each month, Actions always connected with that goal. And of course, make every effort to comply, and track, perhaps with a simple table where you go marking the days you've made and the days not, to be learning from mistakes. And do not expect success in a month, or two. Success in any discipline requires just that, discipline, perseverance and patience.
