Good Habits Will Make Your Life Better if You Implement It

There are numerous gurus and courses out there to teach you how to become a successful person. Although I agree with some of them, what I believe to be the starting point of success and happiness is from yourself.

Yes, YOU are the key point to make your own success and happiness.

Successful people did not see a problem as a problem but they see it as a lesson. They keep focus to find solutions not complain. Always find and love yourself as the key to apply the positive habits. Those personal habits that are important to improve your life will then make your success closer.

    My dear old grandfather used to say “if you’re not consciously creating good habits, you’re unconsciously creating bad ones”. They’re some of the truest words I’ve heard in my life. I transitioned into being an early-riser about a year ago, and it’s made a massive difference in my life. I feel like I’m starting each day with purpose, plus I get to do some things I like before the grind of the work day. Great list you have here.

      Wow thanks Shirley for sharing your grandfather’s word. Have a nice day :)

  2. Lynn

    This post is really interesting. I would love to do all those 50 personal habit to improve my life but I would have to take it slowly since I’m not really accustomed to some of the habits listed, like talking to a stranger or go swimming (I can’t swim ugh).
    Thank for the ideas!

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Lynn, yeah one habit at a time :) It will be hard if you want to learn everything at once. Wish you success with your new to-learn positive habits :)

  3. Clare

    Hi Alexander,
    Great list of things we should all be doing to improve our lives and succeed with our goals. I would add meditation to that list although I guess you have it covered, under “learn to do nothing” :)
    Even if we all just chose one per day to implement, in 50 days we would all be healthier, happier and more motivated!

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Clare, thank you. Mediation is really good, although I haven’t done it personally. Yeah, it can be covered in “learn to do nothing” for a short time , if you wish to interpret it like that.:)

      We can do one at a time for starting :) Good luck.

    Hi Alexander

    Wow these are some fantastic personal habits for one to ponder upon. I am big on planning, I like knowing where and how I am going to get somewhere!

    Making better food choices and excercising are definitely on my to do list! Like most I struggle to find a good amount of balance, peace and serenity in everything I try and want to do.

    My biggest downfall is my love of working, I guess this is the first point of call for me to evaluate. Thank you for this amazing list. Bookmarked!

    Kind Regards

      Hi Michelle :) Thank you.

      Wow you really sound like a good planner with all the to do list thing :) Yeah don’t worry and take it slow at first to evaluate things. Hope you will always be inspired to do positive things.

    Well said about habits and improving life being connected. Small things like waking up early can make such a huge difference!

    The thing is: in the beginning, it’s hard to get used to getting up early, but once it’s made a routine you don’t even need an alarm anymore… And the coffee one is something I used to have a problem with. What I started doing was keep bottles of water in the fridge so I can just get them when I’m thirsty. It’s great because it’s less work than making a coffee so you wind up drinking it…

    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Gabriel, I agree with you. It’s hard at first but after some time, you’ll be used to the new habit. Haha you’re right. Drinking water is healthier, easier, and cheaper than coffee :) Good luck for applying the positive habits.

    Hi Alexander,

    Honestly, I found your website very helpful. I will try to apply some of the 50 habits to improve my personal care.

    I’m very weak at eating slow and healthy though :S

    I believe it is a matter of learning to care ourselves to improve health. nowadays, everybody does everything quick, in a rush. Time is short and things need to be done before end of day which damages our health in the long run.

    I will bookmark this website to keep this habits in mind.



    1. Alexander Blue (Post author)

      Hi Kevin, thank you for reading :) Yeah I know what you means about learning. Even I try slowly to adapt myself with these positive habits. Working on everything all at once may make our mind ‘break’, so just do it slowly but sure.

      Thanks for bookmarking and I’ll look forward to your next visit :)
