To move towards more excellence in your life, journey starts and will continue to be one small step at a time. One small step a day is far more effective than to make a resolution to take a huge jump forward, and then not make any progress for a while.
Gradual - it is a process, and not seeing results immediately can be discouraging. One helpful thing to do is to set small landmarks with some motivating reward when they are achieved. It is good to have attitude and habit of always striving to do better in every area of life all time. However I would also suggest a focus on one main thing at a time, and as that becomes habitual in your life, select another area of focus.
Always -it needs to be every day; a small discipline at first that becomes a positive habit. I would suggest developing as part of your morning routine a time and place when you deliberately pause and reflect on new lifestyle habit you are presently working on. In that time consider how during that day you are` specifically going to do or think in a different way to reinforce your growth in that area. Set a goal for day.It is helpful to read or carry with you a short sentence or quote that will motivate and remind you of your goal during day. Perhaps a Post it note in car, or kitchen as a way of re focusing during day It needs to be a daily conscious act, otherwise days missed turn into weeks, discouragement sets in and it becomes easy to give up. When a new habit is formed and is part of your lifestyle when you look back you will be amazed at changes you see.
To take even just a couple of minutes set aside at beginning of your day is a very powerful key and works well. We all need frequent encouragement and motivation. It also is an excellent way to start your day positively, and will set tone for day.
