Our habits either make us or break us. As a leader, it is wise to constantly ask ourselves, "are my habits healthy for success", "which habits are hindering my progress?", "what habits do I need to improve on?" As discussed in my book Success On Your Terms, "Habits are routine behaviors that directly influence life patterns….It is important to self-evaluate every once in a while in order to root out bad habits, fine-tune the good ones, and develop new ones."

I hope the following quotes on habits inspire you to develop winning habits…
