We can read hundred of articles about personal development but if we don’t have the habit of strong consistency and cannot fulfill the promises made to ourselves and the society it won’t change us. Some say that the power of will is born-in into the personality of someone but we all know that the personality itself can be changed by changing habits which can be owned by simple first steps.
This article is about you letting go of the unwanted habits that stand as a obstacle on your life journey but also it can also be seen as a article about creating habits, both beneficial and destructive.
It is not the numbers that build the habit but the strength of the first numbers, the first tryouts that build the vitality of the next row. It may sound really down, but the vitality of the next row can be immediately banished with a little moment, the moment of realization, the moment of being true to ourselves, our body and our future.
Habits are not created long term nor short but at the right first time, how we think of it by the way we think of ourselves. It is not the five first times nor fifteen times of smoking a cigarette that design if the next door will be easy to open, but the thought of the need and will of it on the right first time.
The power of will won’t come with the wind that touches us, it must come from the inside where the all other real things come, the things that define our intentions, our motivations and our pictures of the whole life which is drawn in the minds of the close and distant acquaintances.
It is the consistency behind the words, “ok” and “no” that start building the tower, it doesn’t matter if the ok or no were strong, what matters is the strength of the consistency and finishing the promises.
The tower is built firstly by the easy doings, with the easiest walks like going to the grocery to buy milk or going out to lend a movie. These are the first steps in building the consistency and the will that drive someone to success.
One cannot conquer a mountain by landing on top of it with a helicopter and by that in mind, one cannot finish bigger tasks without firstly doing and than forgetting the smaller ones.
To finish a long journey one needs to bust the first step but the effectiveness of the journey is defined by the mindset which shapes the first step.
