Good habits always pay. Period.
For example, the first thing you must do in the morning is to make your bed. Making your bed seems cliche but doing so gives you a sense of accomplishment & confidence.
Make your bed in the morning – One of the good habits
I was in the hostel in 1998. The first task after getting up early in the morning was to make the bed. The warden then used to check all beds. If they were not made properly you face punishment. Kinda discipline.
I call it a habit of successful people. Bad habit and good habits are part & parcel of our life.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a successful person in life? The answer is subjective. Yet there are certain things that we can point out. This will help you become more productive on daily basis.
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Best Book on Habit
Since we are talking about good habits Stephen Richards Covey is an honorary mention. He is an American educator, author, businessman, and keynote speaker. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is the NYT bestseller book published by Stephen Covey.
I recommend you to read this book once.
But why am I talking about all this? What sense does it make reading about books on best habits for success. Why?
Good habits + discipline = Success
Success is an important trait of life. We all want to be super rich & super successful in life. Living a mediocre life is not an option here. If you are born poor then it’s not your fault. But if you die poor then it is certainly your biggest fault.
I am not going to teach you how to be rich. Nope. Neither am going to share some secrets on overnight success. No again. There’s no shortcut to success. Hard work, discipline, dedication brings desired results. Daydreaming about money won’t take you anywhere.

If you want to have Bollywood style body then proper diet & training is the only solution. You can’t grow biceps on trees. Yout kitchen is the place where you build biceps and a great physique.
