Habits are more influential and important than you think. The profound effects of every problem often come from the little things we overlook.
According to author Charles Duhigg, habits are simple suggestion-activity-reward loops that save effort and stamina. He wants to introduce you to the very important 3-step process of forming a habit. First, it is receiving information or when you are influenced by external factors. These new things will stimulate brain activity, from which the brain begins to evaluate the appropriate course of action. The next step is to maintain this habit every day. Like how you automatically wake up at 6 am if you form the habit of sleeping at 10 pm every day. The final step in the process is forming that habit. For example, forming the habit of eating vegetables every day results in good health. Every habit leads to good or bad results, so you need to practice good habits and eliminate bad habits. The reason to create a habit is that it gives you a sense of victory as if you have achieved your goal. Changing bad habits into good habits will help you change other aspects of your life to be more positive.
With the basic rules and theories from author Charles Duhigg in The Power of Habit, you will recognize many priceless lessons in life on the journey of conquering success.
