Last time, we looked at why a sense of purpose is so essential to success. However, according to Albert E.N. Gray, who first presented this idea in a speech in 1940, sense of purpose is really only one half of the success equation. In reality, every single qualification for success is acquired through habit. We form habits, and these habits form futures. In fact, if we do not deliberately form good habits, then we are actually forming bad habits without knowing it. We are who we are for a simple reason: We have formed the habit of being that kind of person, and the only way to change that is by changing our habits.
