Mini Habits Update

I still have some areas I need to work on.
As promised in my previous article on Mini Habits from the book, Mini Habits, I am reporting back to you regarding the book.

It's a pretty good read. I'm not that far into the book, but I'm reading it...slowly.

The author, Stephen Guise, makes an interesting point as he explains that, "good habits are as amazing as bad habits are dreadful" (ebook p 424). What that means to me is that it's all about perspective. If we look at developing a good habit with a positive attitude then that's probably what will happen and vice versa.

Nevertheless, I need all the help I can get in developing better habits in several areas of my life. As I continue on with reading the book I expect to learn new tools. I'm learning more than I thought about how the brain works (Guise goes quite a bit into detail about how the prefrontal cortex and the basal ganglia works regarding motivation and will power). Will I report back on that? Maybe.

In gist, I'm optimistic that things will get better for us all in self-development and for many of us that begins with developing better habits and sticking with them, not just doing them for 2 weeks.

No need to worry though, because all this is a little reminder about what the Lord said about the security of our future. He said, "for I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." 

How about making a habit of believing that if you haven't already done so?

Jeremiah 29:11


  1. I love that scripture. It's on the front of one of my journals. You're right. Forming good habits is important because it keeps us on the right track to better health, better living, spiritual growth, educating ourselves, etc.

  2. Yes, it's a great scripture and one of the more common ones. I used it throughout many blog posts, because it's fitting for what God has for His people and others who chose to believe it. #faith

Protecting My Peace - Day 98 - Momentum and Movement, That’s What's Up

Click to listen to current podcast episode. “Never Giving Up” are power-words — strong affirmations that give us momentum and movement. That’s what’s up. We can do so much more in our lives when we have momentum and movement. It’s about standing, literally and not sitting or laying around feeling sorry for ourselves. I used to do that once upon a time and that sorrowful thinking is for the birds. We don’t have to be down. We can get up and get going even if we start small. In fact, I love starting small, because it helps set a firm foundation of habits and routines. Momentum and movement will help us get and maintain a position of strength to do what God says we can do.

God blesses whomever he wants to bless, whenever he wants to bless them

Daily Devotional Podcast. Follow along with blog post. When I was going through a dark time -- when I had nothing -- there was a certain person who helped me sometimes. She helped me whenever she basically felt like it, but she did help, and for that I'm appreciative. But, something interesting happened after I started growing out of my despair. Something interesting started happening when I no longer needed her for anything. And something interesting happened even though I remained kind and grateful towards. The interesting thing that happened was that she started hating on me. She started treating me differently. At first I was really bothered by it, because I thought she and her husband were nice people I wanted in my life. I liked that they had a sense of compassion and were interested in helping people who were down and low. That really appealed to me, because I was raised that way; my mother was raised that way; her mother was raised that way, and it goes back to as fa

Protecting My Peace - Day 96 - Disciplining Ourselves for Next Level Greatness

Click to listen to today's podcast episode. When it comes to next level greatness, we have to know that applies to us, not just everyone else. Do you know what God has for you? Do you? He has GREATNESS for you. Yes, YOU -- all of us. It's about doing what you can do and only you can do. You are the only one with your DNA -- none of us. is the same Yet, even when we're feeling down, discouraged, and out, those emotions are only temporary. None of us has it all together. Sometimes I procrastinate and put things off when I know I should be doing better. Yet, I am not as diligent and disciplined as I can be sometimes. Like when it comes to working out, I delay it, because I don't like it anymore. And although I love reading the bible, I haven't been reading it as often as I should lately. Yes, I, Sharon, the Faith Coach, do not do the things I'm supposed to do when I'm supposed to do them. And that my dear friends should not come as a shock to no one. It certa
