Your Habits Make You Or Break You

Article By Opeyemi Komolafe

HEY……..STOP THAT!!

Yes, you……stop it!!!!

What is that thing, now a habit that is sabotaging the achievement of
your goals? What is that activity that you love so much that is a
hindrance to you taking the timely and calculated steps towards the
achievement of your life’s purpose.

They are not always bad things. They might appear to be harmless little
actions or habits that make you do the opposite of pursuing your life’s
goal.

For me, it is television. I loooooooooove TV!!!!! I always tell myself
that it helps me unwind and relax after a long hard day so the hours I
spend watching tv are slotted under the section of ‘work/life balance’
or ‘helping Ope relax and prevent her from pulling her hair from the
roots.’ Watching tv is not necessarily bad, but its effects on me became
glaring after a recent decision by my husband that cable network would
not be subscribed to during the school term. You see, my daughter picked
some of my habits and always found it difficult to focus on school work
as long as a tv is switched on in the house. This drove my husband’s
insistence on no cable tv. I was very upset because I love medical drama
and law drama series. However, I noticed that during the ‘down’ periods,
I read more literature, write more articles, service more constructive
relationships, in short, I was more productive during those long hours I
had previously allocated to ‘unwinding in front of the tv.’ This was a
serious wake up call for me.

What is that task or activity that slows your pace of achievement down?

Which habit is it that ensures that your goals continue to be
unreachable?

It might be

  • Time spent lazying around on social media.
  • Time spent hanging around with friends who are not purpose driven.
  • Hours spent watching TV.
  • Extra time spent at the gym catching up on current affairs.
  • Time spent complaining about your inability to achieve your goals.
  • Hours spent reading questionable literature and many more.

It’s important to note that time is precious and any period not spent in
the direction of achieving your goals is time spent ensuring your goals
are not achieved.

Dear readers, we need to do an honest appraisal of what our activities
and habits are and identify those that are not pushing us in the right
direction. Any habit/task/activity/relationship etc that we have
identified to fall into this category, we need to do all we can to STOP
IT if we are to continue our pursuit of purpose.
