For today’s post I’m going to share 100 positive habits that can change your life. Whether you are a budding entrepreneur, looking to improve your career prospects, a student or just want to improve your daily life, your habits can either help your prosper or help you fail!
For most of us our daily habits limit our success. We have negative habits that constantly hold us back, habits that we just can’t shake off. For others, who possess a repertoire of positive habits, they can reach their goals much more easily.

What are habits?
A habit something that you do often and regularly, sometimes without knowing that you are doing it:Cambridge English dictionary
In essence our habits are what make us, our good habits drive us forward whilst our bad habits hold us back. Therefore to reach our full potential it’s essential we get rid of those negative habits and beliefs and replace with positive ones.
Of course, it’s not always as simple as just deciding to change what we do. In fact letting go of bad habits and behaviours can be harder than we think. After all that’s why there called a habit in the first place.
How do we develop good habits?
Developing good habits can take a considerable amount of time and hard work. For many of us we start off with good intentions, however gradually we fall back into our old habits without even realising it.
We’ve all been there, January is round the corner and we make all these healthy new year resolutions only to be back were we started by March.
As we introduce new habits in our lives we expect our life to change quickly, however, changes don’t happen overnight. When we don’t see results quickly enough we get frustrated and discouraged, leading us to eventually give up.
It doesn’t have to be this way though. Instead of taking on too much, try starting small, implementing small changes that eventually become habits. In other words don’t increase the effort untill the habit becomes a natural part of your day.
For example if you want to start eating healthy, instead of changing your whole diet, start with changing just one thing such as eating more fruit or veg. As this becomes the norm, add in another aspect such as reducing sugar intake. This may take more time to achieve your goals but its also much more sustainable and your more likely to succeed.
For those of you wanting to incorporate some more positive habits into your daily life I have listed 100 positive habits to get you started. Now, most of these habits alone probably won’t make a huge difference to your life, however when a few of them are combined together you will no doubt see some great improvements.
