“We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristotle
I took this photo of Coco and Skylar during (yet another magnificent Malibu sunset). Sometimes, we would have to literally "run" down to the beach to catch the last of the day. After the sun went beyond the horizon, the Malibu sunset would fill the sky with a fantastical glow and we would enjoy several hours more along the beach, listening to the ocean, enjoying each other and everything around us. This routine became one of our BEST habits!!!
I cannot express how important it is to develop GOOD habits. Realize that habits are skills, not wishes. It was easier to get Coco and Skylar to the beach because of the magical wonder, however, sometimes (after a long day), it wasn't so easy. I'm sure you can relate. But, I made it a "habit" of taking Coco and Skylar out on an adventure every single day AND, because I did, this act became a very active habit of ours.
Other habits in my life were not so easy. I spent the majority of my life "wishing" I could change certain things about myself and actually do the things I really wanted to do in life. I had the best of intentions but always fell short. I tried so many times but fell back to my same routine over and over again. I just felt worse and eventually helpless.
It wasn't until I joined my digital academy and was mentored to help me find my true passion in life. I learned the skills to implement my greatest wishes into my lifestyle that I still maintain today. I believe in what I do and I no longer wake up "wishing". I go to sleep each night, knowing I made a difference that particular day. I'm not perfect by any means, I just go to bed feeling pretty damn good.
For a habit to become something you do without thinking about it, find people (for me it was my digital academy) and learn skills where mentors keep you accountable until you've GOT IT! Once you have it down, you will never go back. You just won't!
Good habits replace wasted time. ❤️🐾❤️🦋🌈 #creatingdigitallife #marguritelalonde #malibu #dogsofinstagram #authentic #ocean #surf #sunset #livelovelaugh #grateful #entrepreneur #aristotle #givingback #love #surf
