I can change; I have the will to change; I will change.
I am today the result of my habits. My destiny starts with my thoughts and is crafted by habits. My tendencies, moods and desires are born out of my habits. So are hopelessness, despair, failure, anger, fear and worry. And so is excellence.
I perform all actions using right judgment and choice of will and not by the force of habits. I replace wrong habits with right ones and water them with good thoughts and actions. With tremendous commitment, I keep at it until the positive habit is deeply rooted in my mind.
I take time to consciously sow right habits and weed out wrong habits. And in time, I reap a rewarding destiny!

Your brain carves patterns and searches for them endlessly – Thomas B. Czerner
The brain is constantly trying to automate processes, thereby dispelling them from consciousness; in this way, its work will be completed faster, more effectively and at a lower metabolic level. Consciousness, on the other hand, is slow, subject to error and expensive – Gerhard Roth
Today’s revolutionary advances in neuroscience will rival the discoveries of Copernicus, Galileo and Darwin – Paul Churchland
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit – Aristotle
Habits of thought are mental magnets that attract specific things relative to their kind and quality. Material habits will always bring material results, and spiritual habits attract spiritual results. – Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda
Habits can be learned and unlearned. But I also know it isn’t a quick fix. It involves a process and a tremendous commitment. Habits have tremendous gravity-pull and breaking deeply imbedded habitual tendencies involves more than a little willpower and few minor changes in our lives. – Stephen R.Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or by emotional appeal. – Marilyn Ferguson
Sow a thought, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap a character; Sow a character, and you reap a destiny – Charles Reade
THE HABIT POEM
I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am completely at your command.
Half of the things you do you might as well
Turn over to me and I will do them – quickly and correctly.
I am easily managed – you must be firm with me.
Show me exactly how you want something done
and after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of great people,
And the regret of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine but I work with all its precision
Plus the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit or you may run me for ruin –
It makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, be firm with me, and
I will place the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I? I am Habit.
