Do you know what is your top bad habit or worst habit which
is preventing you from achieving what you want in life?
At the first glance, this looks like a very easy question which
does not require much thinking at all and can be answered at
once or very quickly, isn’t it?
And some people may just jump to the conclusion that this is
a very silly and unimportant question and they will just brush
this aside and not bother to think more about it, because they
think they will be wasting a lot of their very precious time by
pondering over this.
Some other people may feel this is a very personal question
and will not be interested in answering it because they feel
it intrudes into their privacy.
There may also be other people who will be very suspicious
why this question is asked because they will assume that the
person who is asking this question is targeting them with the
aim of cheating or hurting them.
Or there may even be some people who think like they are a
combination of all the above!
It should be made very clear here that there are no attempts
to waste the valuable time of people or to violate anyone’s
privacy or to cheat or harm anyone.
Nobody is being asked to declare to the whole world what is
their top weaknesses and there is certainly no way that it can
be forced out of anyone.
Your secrets are very safe unless you really want to reveal

If we are asked to list down all our bad habits and if we are
honest, we will easily come out with five or ten or even a
lot more, don’t you agree?
But do we really know what is the worst or number one bad
habit that is giving us the most problems to obtain what we
want in life and achieve our goals?

A lot of people find it very difficult to improve their lives
because their bad habits are holding them back from their
attempts to achieve their goals.
Some people are still in denial and they do not admit that
they have bad habits which are seriously impeding them
in their journeys to reach their objectives in life. But that
is another story! They will have to work harder to get out
of their denial syndromes first!
For those people who can recognise their weaknesses and
want to rid themselves of some their bad habits, here are
some very simple tips which can help.
Many people have failed in eliminating many of their bad
habits because they were concentrating on only one habit
at a time and were discouraged by all the things they have
to do and also the many likely obstacles which they need
to face and overcome, that they do not even want to start
or they will give up very quicky.
They are so discouraged by all the potential problems that
they cannot see the benefits which they can get if they are
able to stop their bad habits which are preventing them to
enjoy a better quality of life.
They are so obssesed with their problems that they cannot
see the light at the end of the tunnel.
They do not have the presence of mind to be calm and to
think clearly about their problems.

bad habits are really causing them to lose a lot of their time
and money… and since time is money, they are being hit in
their pockets all the time.
Do you think this will motivate people to take action to stop
some of their bad habits?
It is certain that it will not help all the people because there
are many stubborn, complacent and negative folks who are
very difficult to help because they refuse to help themselves.
Many human lobsters will end up as food for those who are
always looking to take full advantage of them!
However, it is hoped that this simple approach can help other
people to get rid of some of the habits which are not good in
their lives and which are causing a lot of damage.
And that it may even encourage some people to work on more
than one bad habit at one time to stop them because they want
to stop the pain in their pockets.
If you are determined to do something about your bad habits to
make them stop hindering you in your attempts to improve your
life, why not use this simple method?
Just focus on the fact that your bad habits are really causing you
to lose a lot of time and money which you always want more of
