Seeing our habits as clay shaped into a pot, ‘How much do your habits mould who you are?’ becomes a key component to looking at and even understanding how we are, as well as indeed where we are.
Taking this idea further, we should bear in mind pots sometimes crack, leak and, if necessary, are able to be remoulded to better serve our needs. How much do your habits mould who you are? Possibly the answer is: “As much as is beneficial to us.”
The question can be pondered with an emphasis on any areas of life, health and financial quickly spring to mind. How much do your habits mould who you are? If habits include smoking sixty cigarettes a day and religiously opting to take the car for even the shortest of journeys, it will surprise nobody if lungs feel clogged whilst pockets empty rapidly. Our choices, our consequences.
Rather than asking “How much do your habits mould who you are?”, we could decide to consider what life would be like with a) less restrictive habits and/or b) habits providing a lifestyle more attuned to heartfelt values.
Such a matter might best be explored as part of a complimentary coaching conversation via Skype or Google+ hangout. If you are interested, please get in touch.
