Your Bad Habits Are Costing You Greatness.

Don’t pretend like you’re interested in changing your life when you’re not willing to get up a little bit earlier each day to make that change start the stick. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that tomorrow is going to be any different than today if you’re not doing something different today that will change tomorrow.

Stop blaming other people for your own laziness, your bad attitudes, and the bad reputation you have because of the way you treat other people.

Just because life is miserable for you right now doesn’t mean that you get to take out your pain and stress and confusion on those around you.

And by the way, maybe you should take a closer look at your budget, your finances, and where you invest your wealth. How you spend your money is pretty telling.

If you can afford 900 cable channels but be too broke to hire a coach or buy a book, the story of your failure has already been written.

Bad habits and poor behavior will derail every bit of progress you’ve made in getting closer to where you want to be.

Some of those bad habits are just sloppiness. The rest are just baggage you’ve let build up over time.

You’ve been hurt and so now you’re hurting someone else. Life has been unfair to you, so you don’t care that it’s unfair to everyone else.

From time to time it’s important to stop and think about how your behavior is getting in the way of you getting to where you want to be.

Are you growing or are you slowing? More importantly, what are you going to do about it?

If you say that you truly want breakthrough in your life, then you must be open to changing anything and everything in that pursuit.

If you’re serious about success, take time to fix your bad habits.
