When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.  ~  Dalai Lama

Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones. ~  Benjamin Franklin

An unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give us than the bad ones. ~ Somerset Maugham

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”  ~ Samuel Johnson

“We become what we repeatedly do.”  ~  Sean Covey

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”  ~  Jim Ryun

“Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits.”  ~  Mark Twain

“Good habits are worth being fanatical about.”  ~  John Irving

A bad habit never disappears miraculously. It is an undo-it-yourself project.  ~  Abigail Van Buren

Men’s natures are alike; it is their habits that separate them.  ~  Confucius

It seems, in fact, as though the second half of a man’s life is made up of nothing, but the habits he has accumulated during the first half.  ~ Fyodor Dostoevsky


Now that year 2014 is over and we are entering into realm of New Year 2015.  Time is passing every moment.

Almost every one of us makes a resolution for coming year to bring improvement in life. People look forward for good health, more wealth, happiness, success and peace. They want improved relationship with their near and dear one’s and several other positive traits of life.

We want everything positive in our lives. But most of the time, we forget to practice principles that make our lives happy. It is the time not only to frame some resolutions but to act as well and establish positivism in our lives.

Here are some suggestions for improvement in various traits. We need to cultivate some positive habits for the same.
