Our daily habits are those little things that we do every day without much thought. Our outer circumstances are those things that surround us every day that we are thinking too much about. Sadly, most of us can’t stop thinking about how our outer circumstances are holding us back. Furthermore, many of us tend to neglect the power of our daily habits.

Many people who have made it big have had outer circumstances just as bad as, or even worse than ours. The difference between them and most of us is that they have learned not to dwell on their outer circumstances. These winners don’t let the constant barrage of negative thoughts about their unfortunate situations, or outer circumstances, clog and clutter their minds. They refuse to be paralyzed by their outer circumstances, and refuse to be held down in the stifling role of a Monday morning arm-chair quarterback.

You see, the real key to our success is not how good or how bad our outer circumstances are. Rather, the real key to our success is all those tiny little human behaviors that we do every day, all day long, without much thought. These little routine behaviors are called our daily habits and they make a huge difference in our daily lives.

Our daily habits add up to a lifestyle that either moves us closer to our dreams and goals, or it doesn’t. It’s really that simple. Are our habits working for us to help us succeed? Or are we falling behind in life because we’re working way too hard due to our bad habits. In essence, instead of our habits working for us, we are working for them and now find ourselves mired in a world of mediocrity, or perhaps even drudgery, while being perplexed about why we’re not winning yet?

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use Granddaddy’s secret of,  ”It’s our daily habits and not our outer circumstances that dictate our success!”
