Join us on this journey of personal growth, where faith is the reason we are flourishing in life and business.


Let's go on the transformative journey of intertwining faith and business, as we dive into 5 tips to help you begin creating healthy habits that will elevate both your personal and professional life, all on the amazing journey of Faith & Business.


Identify Your Unhealthy Habits


Before you can begin creating healthy habits for success, you’ll want to take your time with this critical first step because it is the most important step.

So, the first thing you need to do is identify your unhealthy habits. Yes, it's time to do some deep reflective thinking to identify those habits that are keeping you in stagnation. Alot of our habits may come from our childhood the way we were taught to think, be or act. Let me show you why you need to identify your unhealthy habits so you can begin to create a successful strategy to replace it with healthy habits.

  • A lot of times we do things or act certain ways without realizing it most habits are embedded in our subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is powerful, if you're not self-aware it tends to rule your life.

  • When your subconscious mind is in control of your life unhealthy habits make the decisions for you. When you don't identify those unhealthy habits you allow those decisions to make you complacent, unmotivated, and stuck on the hamster wheel of life.

For example:

Since I was a child, I've always loved Little Debbie cakes. Every time I went into a store, I would always get a debbie cake no matter what kind it was. I had no concern for how it affected my health I was a kid. One I became an adult I became more aware of how the cakes would affect my health, so I decided to stop eating debbie cakes. However, it wasn't as easy as I thought because every time, I would go into a store I quickly grabbed a debbie cake. Once I identified this habit, I was able to break it.


Find the Triggers


At this point, you’re probably thinking I didn't realize that it was that deep. I didn't realize just how powerful the subconscious mind is. I didn't know what made me do the things I did. It may be because I lacked self-awareness.

You may even be wondering, “how do I break the habits when they have been a part of my life for so long?”

Keep reading, I'm about to tell you right now, promise. What we’re getting ready to do is find the triggers that make you act on those habits that you know are not good for you.

One thing that will help you find your triggers is to ask yourself, how was I feeling, where was my location at the time, who were the people around me, or what time of day was it.

Now it’s time to practice self-awareness. Once you have identified the habits you want to change and what triggers you to act on those unhealthy habits you can begin to change them.

The reason this step is important is that it will help you become more self-aware of the decisions you are making which makes it easier to take control of every decision you make.


"improving by 1 percent isn't particularly notable- sometimes it isn't even noticeable- but it can be far more meaningful, especially in the long run." - James Clear

Remove & Replace


Are you starting to think to about which habits you need and want to change? I hope so. You may even be feeling a little down on yourself right now, but don't get too discouraged we all have things that we need to change about ourselves. Any time you’re learning something new, it takes a minute to process it. Just be patient and stay with it. 

Next, I want you to think about what you will replace those unhealthy habits with. Make a list of all your unhealthy habits on the left side of a sheet of paper and on the right side I want you to write down new healthy habits that will replace the old habit.

The reason I am suggesting that you write it down is because when you can physically see what you need to improve on and what you're going to replace it with it will be easier to work towards.




Include God in your Daily Plan

Make a Plan


We’re just about done. There are just two more steps. Here’s what to do next:

Create a plan of action that you will implement every time that you notice you are being triggered to go back to your old ways of thinking, being, acting, doing, or speaking.

The key is to be realistic when you are creating a plan to change your unhealthy habits, because you will most likely stick to it. Start small, pick one or two things to start off with that you feel you need to change immediately.

Focus on that one thing every day, make it fun, make it easy, and don't be so hard on yourself.

Anticipate obstacles on your journey to creating healthy habits. Don't get down on yourself if you have a day where you make mistakes or you forgot to stick to your plan.

Reward yourself! You've been working hard. Most people are so hard on themselves they forget to reward themselves for all of their hard work, their improvements, and their changes. 



Hold Yourself Accountable


Last but not least! The most important part of creating healthy habits. Holding yourself accountable. That's right you have to make a plan and commit to the process.

On my journey to creating healthier habits I tried so many things to help me stay focused on the journey and I want to share with you the ones that helped me the most.

Here’s how to get the best results with creating healthier habits:

  • Get a planner to help you plan out your day to become more strategic and intentional about your every action.

  • Recognize when you are beginning to slip back to your old habits. When you recognize it for yourself it opens your eyes and helps you begin to get back to your plan of action.

  • Get an accountability partner someone who will help you stick to the plan that you have for creating healthier habits in your life and business.


Remember to Embrace your Journey


As we come to the end of our journey of Faith-Fueled Success, remember that God's word says in Romans 12:2 KJV "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

This article is to help you develop healthier habits to deepen your walk with Christ by creating healthier habits to include him in your everyday life while applying the same mindset to growing in your business by creating healthier work habits.

Take the first step today by implementing at least one new habit into your daily routine, whether it's setting aside time daily for prayer, dedicating yourself to read one chapter in a book to help you grow in entrepreneurship, or reading one chapter a day in the bible or listening to a motivational speech from a successful entrepreneur.
