We are all busy living life, going to work, saving money, taking time to exercise and caring for our relationships. We set a lot of goals in each area. Some we achieve and others so frustrating we do not. Why is that? Lets determine our desires.
What do you desire to achieve?
- New job?
- More money in the bank?
- Strong and fit body?
- Beautiful girlfriend?
Ok now we know what we desire, how do we achieve it?
Make a habit and automate it.
The simple thing of following your habit and doing it daily, will over time bring you massive success!
Wish you had a big emergency fund, stocks paying dividends or money for your vacation?
Log in on your bank and make an automated withdrawal at payday for $500 each month to another account and buy a low cost index fund. Now you are way ahead to reach your goal! Just the automated habit of monthly withdrawal will increase your chance to succeed instead of doing it manually. The market will go up and down, but it should go up given enough time. On the first year you will have $6808 dollars and on the 10th year with 8% interest your money earns $6,928. That’s more then you are saving! And total interest $32,692.66 of extra money for a total off $93,192.66 saved!

Strong and fit body?
Set aside three days a week before or after work to go to the gym. If you are tired, stressed, mind blowing headache, cheerful, well rested and/or happy, you go to the gym. No exceptions!
Three times a week with compound exercises like pull ups, dead lift, squats, bench press, rows results in 12 workouts a month. At the end of this year that is 69 gym sessions. During that time you add 2.5kg to the bar every session and with the habit of working out three times a week, you could go from deadlifting the bar at 20kg to deadlifting over 140kg at new year!
Wish you had a beautiful girlfriend?
When you are out doing stuff and see a interesting girl, make it a habit and approach her to say “Hi, I’m heading to ___ and noticed your ___ (earings). They look silly and I like it, who gave them to you?”
Maybe she will stop and talk for awhile or she will just keep walking. Doesn’t matter you followed your desire! Now do this every time you see an interesting girl. Like the gym you do this if you are tired or happy.
The habit of approaching three girls a day results in:
- 3 girls first day
- 21 girls first week
- 90 girls first month
- 180 girls second month
- 1095 girls over a year!
Approaching 1095 girls will probably get you 10 girlfriends.
Next year you will have $6808 extra in your bank account, you will deadlift 140kg and have 10 girlfriends.

And how do you feel about it now?
With the simple habit of automating your life with small habits everyday, you will achieve massive success over time.
