Working habits have a cascading effect on the success rate. Your desire to grow working habits encapsulated with a positive mindset is a benchmark for growth in life map. These working habits are not in my birth. These are cultivated. When you are born, you are free from all the hassles of life’s habits. Based on your upbringing, environmental factors, society’s influence, your working habits are imbibed and when you understand good or bad of these habits, you try to correct the same for your progress and success.
Many of us are not able to correct and ultimately bury our lives in hell. Working habits are classified as ritual, mental, psychological, spiritual and more. The ritual habits like cleaning
As per the statistical analysis of this subject, I differentiate various habits in HE and HI. HE is habit effective and HI is habit ineffective. Now, how these habits will be under your control so that your rate of success in any of your endeavors are increased. The theory of GIGO or PIPO will be a very effective tool to increase the rating scale of effective habits. Let us assume a rating scale of one to ten for different working habits, namely frequently getting anger, show jealousy on other’s success, nepotism, favoritism, using filthy languages in the working environment, speaking without any supporting thoughts, improper listening, disrespect to other’s words and ideas and many more.
Now, you assign marks on your own against each of these negative attributes and if you find, they are more than seventy or eighty percent of the rating scale, you need to embrace upon the theory of GIGO/PIPO. This is garbage in, garbage out and positive in, positive out. If you take the garbage out of your thoughts and replace the same by positive thoughts, then the intensity of these entire negative habits will be lessened and rate of success will be more. How? Say, you get angry with a slight provocation is in your social or family life. The thought of anger is to be replaced by a positive thought of coolness, it is not that easy, but with a repeated practice, it is possible. For this, you have to increase your confidence almost to a peak level. This line is to be reminded again and again, ’’Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.’’
If working habits developed in you are mostly negative than positive, then the role of self confidence has tremendous importance, otherwise you won’t be able to strength the positive habits or effective habits. I will raise a question here. Do you honestly believe, you have an enough self confidence? If the answer is yes with full conviction, you have one of the greatest blessings, you have in this world. In that case, you will be in a position to change your ineffective habits and automatically your effective habits will be more prominent.
God does not produce any junk. To HIM, all are equal. That is the reason, when you are born, you are not perturbed with any of your habits. You only smile without any pretension. No sooner you grow, you enter in your real life of studying, trying to acquire good percentage, searching jobs to suit your social
need, to take the responsibility of your family members and many more struggles and you inculcate various working habits and some of these are detrimental to your life’s success. Since, God has created you, he has confidence in you.Even your working habits are not that perfect, do not dishearten. You try to get yourself encouraged to reduce the gravity of ineffective habits. I have seen that people do not break down because they are defeated, but because they think that due to their improper habits, nothing will happen. You have to rely on you. You have to believe in your creator/ God.
Another important issue to turn various working habits into success is possibility thinking. If you read Wordsworth’s poetry, you have to believe that much importance should not be given in circumstances
‘’Trailing clouds of glory
do we come from God,
who is our home,’’
With the help of possibility thinking, you can overcome any obstacles and convert your barriers into an advantage. In fact, successful people also have ineffective habits, but they convert the same to their advantages. For example, many established people have the tenacity not to listen to their people, friends, well wishers and even parents. They do all their jobs, mostly in an autocratic fashion. But because of their high success rate in their lives, they do not think much of these negative traits. Possibility thinking shows us the path of advancement so as to achieve our goals.
To achieve success, you have to increase the effective habits and four steps are to be followed, which are planned purposeful, prepare prayerfully, proceed positively and pursue persistently. The eminent inspirational writer William A Ward had professed these. To follow this, you have to continually urge for self-improvement. Give up everything which is wrong and your heart does not accept. It will be difficult to follow this theory in toto, but unless you do this, you cannot increase your success rate.
You have to forget all hatred, resentment, jealousy and grudges. You must forgive everyone against whom you hold resentment.
Make amends for any wrongdoings. You have to ensure that you are a changed person and start a new life at any given point of time. You have to believe with all convictions that your new life, in this life only will be full of glory with the help of God. Follow these and you are bound to be successful.
