If you had to rely on passion, motivation or willpower to do what is needed to become successful, everyone would fail.
This is because passion and motivation ebb and flow from day to day.
And willpower only has a limited reserve that peters out after a few hours.
Success requires consistency.
So, you need something special; something more concrete and longer lasting than passion, motivation or willpower.
Something that forces you to do what you need to do day in and day out, in order to keep you moving forward towards the realization of your dreams and goals.
What is that something special?
Good daily habits.
Habits by their very nature are automatic unconscious behaviors, thinking, decision-making and even emotions.
To engage in habits you don’t need passion.
You don’t need motivation.
You don’t need willpower.
All you need is to have forged the habits and then to be alive and awake.
Where passion, motivation and willpower do come into play is in the early stages of forging the habits.
Self-made millionaires use Passion, Motivation and Willpower to help them develop the good habits that will carry them through to the realization of their dreams and goals.
Once forged, habits stick forever.
You will engage in them even when you lack passion, lack motivation and have zero willpower.
For this very reason, good habits put you on autopilot for success.
They are critical to success and and infinitely more important than passion, motivation or willpower.
