In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.
Habits, good or bad are only created by doing them consistently. Take control of your life by making conscious decisions everyday to become the person you want to be. Ask God for the courage and perseverance to fight through temptation and adversity to avoid bad habits. Surround yourself with only those who inspire and revitalize your inner spirit. What habits would you like to change today?
Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror. He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets what he looked like. But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres, and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, such a one shall be blessed in what he does.
