Why Read (850 words)
I am sure that, like me, you all have dreams, plans and ideals of how you want to look, live and present yourself in this life. For some it might be the bad ass gangsters from the movies, or a swarve smooth talking business man who plays golf on weekends, or a socialist elite, or a fire starter, or Batman, some might even aspire to become more like Harry Potter…but I doubt it. I am also pretty confident that, like me, many of your aspirations for yourself seem to be an unclimbable mountain some way off in the distance in which day after day, month after month and year after year you still don’t seem to be getting any nearer to. Time to change that, no?. Here’s how.
Why The Mountain Is Running Away From You
Your mountain is on the run so you need to chase the little blighter down and forcefully route it firmly in the ground.
Where and what you are now is simply the collaboration of all your previous and current habits. You are simply a collection of habits. All your choices in the past have lead to who you are right now. Life is just a series of individual decisions and every decision you have ever made is a small step that makes up the path that extends behind you.
Habits themselves are like rope, weaved overtime, they become stronger. You life starts to look like the rope chain below, a weaving of all your habits.
No doubt your aspirations for yourself are going to be at least a little different from where you are now and in most cases a lot different. If not, then perhaps you should rethink you aspirations.

Having big plans for your life is the very point of personal aspirations, however too many people seem to forget that to become that person you are aspiring to, your current habits need to change. Your current habits have created you and if you simply mix the same habits together in a test tube, you are simple going to end up with you again, nothing magical will change this.
Every individual is simply a Frankenstein of their thoughts and habits.
If you want something different then you cannot expect to achieve the change by following the same habits and thinking the same thoughts. It is not rocket science, it stands to reason.
You need to change the ingredients and this means changing your habits to align with the person you want to become. This is a long term process but the battle is won on a day to day and decision to decision basis. You cannot win the war if you don’t first win the battles.
Win The Daily Battles To Win The War
Every single decision you make from now on is going to have an impact on wether you meet the aspirations you have set for yourself. Beneficial decisions are going to get you there faster, detrimental decisions are going to slow you down. Simply put, every decision you make is always going to be either a good one or a bad one with regards to your goals.
Make more good decisions then bad ones and you will eventual reach your goals.
Make substantially more good decisions then bad ones and you will get there quicker. Make more bad decisions then good ones and the aspirational goal will fade into the distance like a barge ship drifting into the fog.
It is therefore essential that you remember that every decision you make, no matter how big or small IS GOING TO HAVE AN EFFECT.
If you are trying to lose weight, for example, and have an ideal weight in mind then every meal decision, every food decision and every exercise decision is going to effect that goal. If you make poor decisions daily and eat pizza instead of a salad or watch TV instead of go for a run then your goals are going to drift off. If however you start to win your individual battles and make good decisions on a daily basis then you will win the war and get the body that your are aspiring to. The same principle applies to any other aspiration or goals.
To Sum Up
Goals and Aspirations are achieved on a day to day, hour by hour and decision by decision basis. A few bad ones is not the end of the world, just as a few good ones will not see success. One must focus on every decision they make and know that the outcome of this battle is going to determine the outcome of the war. Happy battles.
Weave a strong cable of good habits.
