First we make our habits............Then our habits make us.

Who are we? It seems we are the sum total of what we do. Sure we may have genetic predispositions to certain behaviours, but does that mean this is who we are. The more I see myself, the more I see that I am what I do. I mean that the things I consistently act on seem to create the person that I am. Throughout my life I have attempted to modify or correct negative behaviours or on the other hand continue with the positive behaviours. Yet, even with this awareness I now realize I only succeed in positive change when I make it a habit. I think I need more practice in certain areas. Today I will be more proactive with certain habits. How about you?

I am glad you talked about this today. I see this in the sportsman. I know at least half of his changed behaviors are because of me.

He was a nice, patient, happy guy when I met him and I am pretty sure because of my actions he has changed, and now is somewhat like me.

Very sad.

Some habits are damn hard to break. So is it a habit or an addiction? There's an interesting debate, bro.
