"We first make our habits,
and then our habits make us."
— John Dryden —
Habits begin and manifest deep in the mind and they can be
friends or foes. Good habits can make our lives easier, helping us
to do the more mundane things of life without thinking about them,
like automatically depositing your paycheck.
But, as all of us know all too well, habits can also be
destructive…to our health, to our finances, to our relationships.
It's why we struggle with losing weight, paying off our credit
cards or quitting smoking…to name a few "bad habits."
Whether they are a positive force in our lives or obstacles to
the goals we want to achieve, habits become ingrained through
As creatures of habit, many people struggle with breaking
habits. In Habits Die Hard, it is our intention to help
you through this very common, very challenging life experience by
giving you 10 keys to replacing destructive habits. Each chapter
contains a worksheet to help you identify your specific problem
areas and how to improve them.
If you have habits you intend to change, you will not be
disappointed in this book.
Food for Thought…
I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me.
For I can do them quickly, correctly and profitably.
I am easily managed; just be firm with me.
Those who are great, I have made great.
Those who are failures, I have made failures.
I am not a machine, though I work with the precision of a
machine and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then…do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit
