  • hey guys welcome to the first video of habit Harvester

  • now this first section we're going to talk a little bit about why we need a

  • habit and what a habit is so habits are especially important because a lot of

  • people find it very difficult to find motivation and what happens is is if you

  • don't need motivation and the habit is already there you will continue doing it

  • even when it's hard so for example you might brush your teeth nobody really

  • needs motivation to brush their teeth because if you've been doing it for

  • thirty years you just know that's what you do before you go to bed and it's the

  • same thing you can train yourself to read a book you can train yourself to go

  • for a six mile bike ride when you wake up there's all kinds of habits that you

  • can start and implement that will help you become more successful later on in

  • your life and some of those you can even start cashing out within a couple weeks

  • of starting so habits are especially important because we cannot rely on

  • motivation because motivation will go away

  • you know you get motivated by reading in a book or you get motivated by trying a

  • new sport because it's fun and it's interactive and it gets you going and

  • then after a while maybe three months maybe six months down the road the

  • motivation goes away and you start to stall on your skill level and there's

  • just other aspects of learning something that you start to stall and you don't

  • love it as much and the motivation goes away and what happens is hopefully in

  • those three to six months that you started the activity or started putting

  • money into your bank account or started reading a book hopefully you have

  • developed habits so that when that motivation goes away you still have that

  • discipline and that discipline is in the form of a habit that every day when I

  • wake up I read 30 minutes or every day when I wake up I'm going to go for a 6

  • mile bike ride and over time they will compound and they will fuel your success

  • now the other side of the coin is you can have bad habits you can smoke three

  • cigarettes a day you can smoke half a pack a day that will also compound and

  • lead to the unsuccessful part of your life you know you'll have higher chances

  • of lung cancer your friends and family may not hang around you as often if you

  • have a smoking habit and in this course I will aim to help you identify all the

  • habits in your life and reverse-engineer them say is this going to help me to get

  • to where I want to go so the thing about discipline is not very many people want

  • to become disciplined and there's a reason behind that some guys said a

  • quote I don't remember who it is but basically it said what differentiates

  • successful people from the rest of people is not what they do when they

  • feel like but when they don't feel like it so

  • anyone can go to YouTube and learn how to start playing a piano we're playing a

  • guitar but what will happen is they will lose motivation and it will become hard

  • they'll be like oh I've learned six chords and now I don't feel like

  • learning anymore because I've learned the song that I wanted but what

  • differentiates them from someone who is super successful is the fact that

  • someone that is super successful has continued to learn more chords they

  • continue to progress and advance and challenge themselves in the cool thing

  • about habits is once they are formed once they are locked in the neural

  • pathways of your brain they start to turn really difficult things things that

  • you might struggle with into easier things for example you might struggle

  • working out everyday now if you recall Arnold Schwarzenegger he worked out all

  • the time but now that he's in his older age he finds that it's way easier how

  • much easier do you think it is for him to work out that it is for someone who

  • has never worked out before or what about reading the more you read the

  • better you get at it so once you have that habit formed it'll eventually

  • compound and you'll read faster and you'll read more and then by the time

  • you're 60 or 70 imagine how much knowledge you can accumulate just by

  • reading 30 minutes a day so this is why we have to have habits in our lives

  • because there's a lot of important aspects that we don't think about and

  • another thing about habits is is that they're really subconscious which means

  • we don't think about them consciously you know you don't think about you know

  • when you're driving to work that route that you take every day and you've taken

  • for the last six years you might not even think about oh I need to turn my

  • blinker on here and then I need a turn you just you automatically it's a habit

  • your brain has established that neural pathway and that's what you do when

  • you're that's the intersection and if you can if you can copy and paste

  • basically that section of your brain into other habits like reading working

  • out trying to find new investments in your health wealth love and happiness

  • and just understanding what a habit is reverse engineering it and using it to

  • boost your success that's what the objective of this course is so one last

  • thing about habits is that they harden like concrete over time and they

  • compound and I think I mentioned this earlier but for example let's say you

  • have three dollars every day and you put that into an investment account so three

  • dollars every day no for a while it's going to start getting tough because

  • three dollars every day you might not even notice it out of your checking

  • account but if your can system ly taking three dollars you know

  • not buying that cup of coffee or not buying that candy bar and taking that

  • three dollars and putting it into an investment account it will start to

  • compound it'll become a habit you won't think about it but the results of it

  • will definitely be shown if you start at age 20 and you end at age 63 dollars

  • everyday you will have an account worth over seven hundred thousand dollars now

  • another example is alcohol if you have alcohol every day from the age that you

  • are 22 the age you are 60 there are going to be some unimaginable effects in

  • your health wealth love and happiness aspects of your life habits can be

  • positive but they can also be negative and in the next sections we're going to

  • talk about identifying bad habits how to get rid of them how to replace them with

  • better habits and how to create new habits stand alone so from this video

  • you need to understand that when motivation goes away you have to have

  • discipline and discipline manifests itself as they have it so the more

  • habits you have the more successful positive accelerating habits you have in

  • your life you will boost your success but it works the other way too because

  • you also have to get rid of your negative habits and if you do both of

  • these if you build positive habits and get rid of negative habits over time you

  • will see your life start to flourish you will see many positive changes in your

  • life and things that were once difficult will start to become easy because you'll

  • understand your part of the brain that has to do with habits you'll understand

  • the cue habit reward process and how you can implement that and how you can

  • implement that to create more habits so let's move on to the next section of

  • finding bad habits and trying to get rid of them
