Habits & How They Get That Way

“The beginning of a habit is like an invisible thread, but every time we repeat the act we strengthen the strand, add to it another filament, until it becomes a great cable and binds us irrevocably, thought and act.” ~Orison Swett Marden

Habits are ambivalent. They care nothing about whether they are good or bad. What we practice most often becomes our habits, and what we most habitually do defines our lives.

Whether it is dropping what we think is a bad habit or developing what we think is a good one, the process is the same, start small, work big.

Sometimes, maybe even oftentimes, we overthink our habits, and end up far from the results we wanted. Habits really are as simple as what we choose to do & not do. Think simply & act completely, the rest will handle itself.
