This Is going to be the most important habit that you will develop! Make sure to read this whole article as this is where the magic the happens in developing this special habit.
On a scale of one to 10 name something that you want at a 10. Take your time and really think about it. Visualize what it would be like experiencing the thing that you seek. Describe it for me to a level I can understand your passion of what it is you desire.
Be specific with your description of what you want. The more specific you are about it the better. Do you have it in your head? Can you feel it, see it and touch it? If you cannot keep focusing until you can. Do everything to see it as if you have already accomplished it.
Write down what you are a 10 on a piece of paper and number that you are a 10. You may have to repeat this step again depending on your answer on the next section.
Next ask yourself the question on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the greatest amount of effort how much effort have you put into achieving your desire. If you are at a 5 ask yourself would you be willing to change your effort level to a 10 for their desire.
This is a crucial step and it is important to have an idea of what 10 effort is. Examples of ten effort is, are you reading up on getting your desire, have you set a date for the desire, are you constantly learning new ways to get closer to the desire, are you willing to surround yourself with those who will get you closer to your desire, are you willing to shake off failure knowing you will continue at 100% effort.
Ask yourself the toughest questions you can. This is an area I have clients mess up on pretty often because they do not ask the right questions. So take your time and think very deeply on this particular area.
If you have a desire at a 10 but you cannot make your effort a 10, find a different desire. You must find something that will give you a 10 in both desire and effort.
Keep a log
Now that you have found something that is a 10 on both desire and in effort, begin to go after it. Make sure to keep a long of as much of the journey as you can. Write down your good days and your bad days. Keep notes of your goal where it is consistently in front of you.
Make sure to write down what you have learned and applied on your journey. Every feeling, every emotion, how you are when you are alone, and how you are around others with your goal.
This may take sometime, especially if it is a very large desire that you are going after. There might even be blood, sweat, and tears, but I assure you this journey will be worth it.
Most Important Habit
Did you figure out what the most important habit is yet?
I will not keep you waiting any longer 🙂
It is good old-fashioned discipline. Putting it all in on the line. Giving 100% thought, 100% energy, to get 100% results.
Why do you have to write it all down? You learn what your message is when you do. You get to see every piece of yourself. The strong parts and the weak parts. It will all be there, so next time you build a new habit you will remember the steps. It is all part of the journey.
Think of it this way. I could type books upon books on how to ride a bike. After reading every book would you really have the secret to riding a bike? Absolutely not. Yes it is important to understand the mechanics but you also have to take action in those mechanics.
Nothing will ever beat discipline, but the only way to gain it is if you are going after something that is bigger than you. Something that you need to have no matter what. The need comes from the combined desire and effort. With a 10 in both you will see just how far you will really go to obtain what you want.
The habit is in the failures, in the growth, and in the journey.
Willing To Transform
There is something special in you, but just like anything else a journey must be taken to unleash it fully. Take your journey because when you do succeed there will be no habit that you cannot create. You will be in full alignment with who you are and realize that you can become whatever you really put your mind to.
This is a real strength, and the most important habit to have.
