Starting one good habit today can lead to a lifetime of good habits down the road. According to Dr. Troy Spurrill, this starts by to understanding what your good and bad habits are. One of the best ways to find this out is to ask someone you know will tell you the truth about yourself.

“I encourage you to ask people who will honestly let you know in a nice, gentle, loving way what your good and bad habits are.”

We might know what our good habits are, but Dr. Troy says we don’t often know what our bad habits are.

“If you look at something you’re really good at or proud of, there’s going to be some good habits in there somewhere because when you do things right consistently, that’s when it becomes a habit serving you.”

If you feel stuck, Dr. Troy says that you should stop, and ask a better question.

“That’s all were doing with these habits. Stop, ask yourself, ask God a better question as far as what are my bad habits, what are my good habits, where do I shine, where am I gifted? These are different types of questions you can ask yourself.”

 Why should I care about having good habits? Will it really help me?

“Good habits will have positive outcomes in some way shape or form in your life. Successful people do the same things over and over again.”

Dr. Troy says everyone thinks that success happens by accident, but it doesn’t.

“What we don’t see is all of the failure and all of the little things that go in to setup that moment of breakthrough. The reality is the little things we do on a daily basis make the biggest difference.”
