How Will Good Habits Give Me Benefits in the Future?

Extrapolation based on experience

First of all, thanks to my good habits I will have a future worth looking forward to.
Habits compound. Bad habits lead you into a worse future. Good habits led you into a better one. This is the reality:

By the way, this is how I discern between good and bad habits:
Good habits are the ones that provide good results after ten years of practicing them.
Bad habits are the ones that provide bad results after ten years of practicing them.

My Story

In 2012 I read The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. The book’s message is based on those two principles:

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.” — Jim Rohn
“Failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.” — Jim Rohn

A Few Examples

Exercises

2013 vs 2010
I shed excess weight. My look improved. My self-confidence improved. My health greatly improved. My chronic allergy almost disappeared and I was getting sick once in two years, not twice a year.

Habits Are Not a Silver Bullet

But they are close to it. Despite all the successes I enjoyed in the last years, my family life has been troublesome. My kids have problems with depression. My marriage too often reminds me of balancing on a rope over an active volcano.

Habits Are Holistic in Nature

When you build a good habit you don’t improve just one area of your life. You improve yourself.


Good habits will provide good results in my life in the future.
