1. Start Small

You have to start with a version of the habit that is incredibly easy for you. It must be so easy that you can’t say no to doing it and so easy that it is not difficult at all in the beginning.


2. Build on your habit each day

You have to increase your habit each day, but in an incredibly small way.


3. Always Keep It Simple!

Even after increasing your habit, all repetitions must remain easy. The total habit should be broken down into easier pieces if needed.


4. Laser Focus

Focus on what you really want to achieve and remove all surrounding distractions.


5. Generate a System

Plan out how you will stick to your habits, how are you going to stay passionate and focused?


6. Don’t Push Away Your Happiness

Don’t push happiness off until you hit some future milestone. Allow yourself to be happy in the moment. Be happy while you are working on the task. While you are working on building your skill set, rather than thinking it is something you will get to once you are good enough.

    Thanks again for another great article and podcast. I love the fact that he started out with the encouraging us to start simple and then building up as we go. To many of us try to take too large a step to start with and then can not keep the momentum. Starting small and building on to earlier progress is the best way to go. Not only will it get us to our goal it will build confidence as one progresses.

    Another powerful method is repetition. The more you repeat a good habit the stronger it gets imprinted into your subconscious mind until you do it automatically.

    I love this article. It is so very direct. I enjoy the reminder of how important remaining happy is. Many times unfortunately life throw us a few curve balls and happiness is out the window.

    I also like that you stress the importance of maintaining focus. To many times we get distracted by everything that is going on around us and lose our focus.

    These are great steps to include in our every day journey to success and happier life.

    Thanks Joel,
    I like your sixth point – about pushing happiness away. Too often we are living in anticipation of some great thing in the future and blindly going about our daily business and “now” without much thought.
    Great plans and an inspired future is something worth cherishing, but living right now and being able o appreciate today, right now, and be calm and in the moment is key.
    By all means culture a great future, but at some point the future becomes the now and that is all anyone has, ever.
    Thanks Bren

4 Ways YOU Can Create Powerful Habits – James Clear

Joel Brown (Founder of



Author and habits expert James Clear says if you want to make big changes, first you have to think small. His new book, “Atomic Habits,” zeroes in on the idea that small adjustments add up to larger changes over time.

Checkout his new book Atomic Habits on Amazon now!

What Are Habits?

Let’s define habits. Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. 

Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.

What you repeatedly do (i.e. what you spend time thinking about and doing each day) ultimately forms the person you are, the things you believe, and the personality that you portray. Everything I write about – from procrastination and productivity to strength and nutrition – starts with better habits. When you learn to transform your habits, you can transform your life.

Listen to the full podcast interview below to learn the ways that James Clear has Mastered his Habits!

As James Clear says:

Becoming better is not simply a matter of willpower or work ethic. It’s also a matter of strategy. What people assume is a lack of willpower or an unwillingness to change is often a consequence of trying to build good habits in bad environments.

  • If you are trying to read more books, don’t do it in a room filled with video games, Netflix, and a television. Move to a less distracting environment.
  • If you’re very overweight, don’t try to follow a workout program for college athletes. You can get there eventually, but that’s not a battle you need to fight right now. Start with a manageable change.
  • If you’re surrounded by people who tear down your goals, then work on your projects in a different location or reach out to like-minded people.
  • If you’re trying to stick to a writing habit when your kids are home from school and your house is in chaos, then work on it at a different time. Switch to a time of less resistance.

Build your habits where it is easy to do so. Re-define the situation. Create a game where the odds are stacked in your favor.

It sounds simple, but how often do you find yourself fighting difficult battles and ignoring easy ones? There is plenty of time to fight the difficult battles. Win the easy battles first.

The smartest path is to improvement is the one of least resistance. Fight battles you are destined to win.

Joel Brown (Founder of



Ben Kelly

Millionaire Entrepreneur, Speaker, Trainer and Investor Ben Kelly shares his principles with you for Rapid Transformation.

Ben Kelly was a financially crippled bricklayer with large debt along with a debilitating mindset and low self worth as he struggled for purpose with a feeling of very little hope of a better life.

However, Ben managed to turn that around in 2 short years through a strong desire to learn, grow and apply all that he learned in facing his fears and identity attachments that held him back.

Ben leads a movement of thousands around the world, speaking to large groups throughout Australia, the US, the UK and Asia sharing the lessons he has learned and the process that helped him to go from a depressed bricklayer unable to voice himself to being able to confidently speak to thousands on how life can change in a moment with a strong growth mindset and a willingness to leave behind what is not in service to your greater self.

His successful network marketing business has allowed him, along with his sister Peta to retire their single mother of four “Christine” and alleviate all of her financial burden. Ben loves travelling the world to lead people to their own empowerment, growth and expansion so they can step into greater expressed versions of themselves.
