Our everyday habits tell who we are and the way we go through our day is a reflection of how we live our lives. Developing powerful habits is the key to stepping out of an ordinary life and achieving your dreams. If it is so, why is it so difficult to change, I wonder?
Our most fundamental habits have been engraved in our mind from an early age and we have mirrored our parents, siblings, relatives and immediate environment in the way they do things day by day. We are the mixture of the 5 people we spend the most time with and we rarely question our daily actions because it all comes naturally to us.
The following books will reveal the habits of high achievers and explain how the mind works and forms habits. After learning and implementing this powerful knowledge, you can change the way you live your life and alter bad habits to ones that are more beneficial for you!
1. The Power of Habit:
This essential of Charles Duhigg explains the cognitive patterns of our behaviour in a really simple, but profound way. The way we get hooked to doing particular activities over and over again are all based on the same principle which he calls habit loops.
A habit always starts with a cue, which triggers your motivation to do it. By repeating the action, you form a routine and after you complete the task you receive a reward which will give you a positive experience and create a reason for you to go through this cycle all over again. This is how people get addicted to smoking and this is the same way how we can build a discipline of reading and meditating daily or learning a new language. It is up to you which habits you choose to cultivate, and this best-seller will be your best friend in the progress.
This classic of Stephen R. Covey takes a well-deserved place on the shelf of success icons and personal growth fanatics. After you go through these lessons you will cherish them forever and wish you knew about them earlier in your life.

Once you integrate these values, you will shift from chasing money to living with an abundance mindset and you will never think about working and building businesses the same way again.

As you read through the pages, you will learn how to say goodbye to complaining and criticism and empower your mind with a vision as well as with discipline and passion as you evolve into a state of unique personal significance.
Seeking balance is probably the most challenging task to the human nature, especially in a world that always moves faster than we could follow. The path of change is never easy and you might find yourself juggling between building new habits with discipline and letting things flow while feeling content.
