Create New Positive Habits Today.

I was asking myself the question today why so many of  us  have dreams of doing something  great to fulfil our life, like following our passions but why some of us still fail in following through what we intend to do every day!

Would this because of:

  • “Fear” that stops us pursuing our dreams? or 

  • We are not good with following through with our tasks, goals and dreams? or

  • We yet to create good habits in our everyday routine?

We are all creatures of habit.  In fact, most of what we do every single day we do unconsciously on auto-pilot and it is very hard for new habits to become established.

As the saying goes “out of sight out of mind.”

That’s the reason why we encourage our clients to dream big, set purpose goals and complete those little tasks.

However, despite our good intentions and excitement, we still fail to do so. This could be because we are under a “Trap Mode” spell too.

We now live in a society where time is less and we demand more of it.  We really need to sit back and plan ahead now. How many times have we said to ourselves and to others “yeah yeah! I’ll do it tomorrow”. So what do you think about the thought of tomorrow?

“Tomorrow is a promise.

                       Yesterday is gone

                                SO make tomorrow today

Well, here is a little tip that I use to easily help myself create new positive habits and routines that I want to stick to daily.

1) I use Google Calendar, if you have not tried it just go to

2) I enter the item that I want to remember into Google Calendar and I make it a task that repeats every single day.

3) I then ask Google calendar to automatically me a daily reminder.

4) I even sync my outlook calendar and IPhone calendar with Google calendar therefore every task I need to action are in one space. It’s simply the best tool you can have to help you create new positive habits.

I have used this to develop powerful new habits such as:

  • Exercising every single day

  • Reviewing my goal list and affirmations every day (I even add my goals and affirmations into the description so that they end up in my inbox and I can review them instantly)

  • Express my gratitude in my IPhone app “Gratitude”

So, take full advantage of and start creating new successful habits today.
