Make Great Habits Today

In his book, The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg explains that the brain is designed to do things in the way that demands the least amount of energy. Duhigg writes that when we establish a habit of doing a certain set of behaviors, the brain trains itself to execute those habitual behaviors so that they require less and less energy.

After reading this, we thought about making habits in relation to building a successful 4Life business. When you establish good patterns in your business, like holding regular meetings and working hard to keep in touch with your team members, those things really do become easier and easier to do. Once your brain knows that you intent to do certain things consistently, it can expend less energy in getting them done.

What if you started today to set in place a few good weekly habits? You could call your top leaders once a week to check on their progress. Or, you could hold a 4Life meeting in your home once a week. You could even commit to talk with ten new people about 4Life every week.

We're confident that just like us, you want to conserve as much brainpower as possible by developing patterns of successful behavior. We hope you'll put in place great habits in your 4Life business and life!
