Habit Building: A lesson or a Practice?

I am a thorough believer in self-improvement. Naturally, I went through one too many habits-building books. The Power of Habit- Charles Duhigg, Atomic Habits-James Clear, How to be a Bawse- Lily Singh and the likes.

The basic framework that all habit-building gurus build is Cue, craving, response, and reward. Lily Singh, better known by her alias ||Superwoman|| states that our mind is our greatest asset and the most important tool at our disposal. It is up to us, to control it, tune it, and make it our best friend.

If our brain is our best mate, then consistency is our matchmaker. Consistency is one thing that habits just cannot exist without. It is consistency that creates habits out of actions. Charles Duhigg in his book The Power of Habit describes the mind as a machine, that once the brain encounters something new, produces immense activity. As and when we start getting used to the activity, the brain activity produced is equivalent to sleep.

Habits form our life and subsequently our future. And our future is dependent on our successes.
