Any activity we do continuously for a long period of time becomes a habit.

We learn by doing.

By behaving courageously, we learn courage. By doing thing with honesty and fairness, we learn these traits. By practicing such traits, we become good at them.

Similarly if we practice negative traits such as dishonesty, lack of discipline or any other bad traits, we become good at such bad traits.

Attitudes are habits.

Change of attitude has direct response to the change of habits. The better the habits, the better the attitude will be.

If we want to do something well, it must become an automatic trait of ours. If we always have to think about doing the "right" thing, we will never be able to do it well.

It means that we have to make that a habit, so we wouldn't have to consciously think about doing it well.

We are all being conditioned by the media and environment, we are taught to do whatever the media has inserted in our minds. But it is our responsibility to do good and condition ourselves in a positive manner.

Good habits are hard to adapt but easy to live with.

Bad habits are easy to achieve but are difficult to live with.


People are being conditioned continuously, whether it's consciously or unconsciously, by being exposed to:

  1. The kind of books we read.
  2. The kind of friends we have.
  3. The kind of people we interact with.
  4. The kind of music we listen to.
  5. The kind of movies we watch.

If you listen to the same music every day while driving home, and if the music stops, guess what tune we will be humming?

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

The same activity always equals to the same results.

The Conscious and Subconscious Mind

Our conscious mind is able to think. It can either accept or reject. But the subconscious only accepts it, it makes no distinction regarding its input.

The subconscious mind can work for or against us. It is not rational. When we fail at something we need to reprogram the subconscious.

The subconscious mind is like a garden; it doesn't care what you plant.

If you plant good seeds you receive a good garden. But if u plant bad and wild seed, you receive a not so beneficial garden full of weeds.

The human mind is the same as that garden.

If you have a positive thinking and positive attitude, you will be able to do things well, otherwise everything will be falling apart.
