Happy Habits – 44

This episode is about the habits you want to create in your life. As God mentioned to me, “You can’t control outcomes, but you can control faithfulness.” And that’s the basis for healthy and happy habits.

Scripture:

Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air;  but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 NASB

No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening–it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. Hebrews 12:11 NLT

 Quotes:

“Linking habits together is a way of getting more done in less time, resulting in a positive change in your life. As you perform the stacked actions every day, they become a part of your daily routine.” Steve Scott

“Every time you choose to do the easy thing, instead of the right thing, you are shaping your identity, becoming the type of person who does what’s easy, rather than what’s right. On the other hand, when you do choose to do the right thing and follow through with your commitments—especially when you don’t feel like it—you are developing the extraordinary discipline (which most people never develop) necessary for creating extraordinary results in your life.” Hal Elrod

“Successful people aren’t born that way. They become successful by establishing the habit of doing things unsuccessful people don’t like to do.” Don Marquis

“Motivation is what gets your started. Habit is what keeps you going.” Jim Rohn

“Choose small. Tend large.” Mary DeMuth

What about you? What makes it easier to do healthy, happy habits? What are you most struggling with now?
