Motivational videos, quotes, books and people are awesome -- they really are. While that might be the case, your habits will make or break you.
If you do not have a golden schedule that features everything you need to get done, as well as incorporates your goals, then you will not achieve as much success as you have set out to achieve. That is why your schedule should feature everything. Yes, even breaks and coffee time.
Whether you like it or not, your habits are what you are going to be known for -- because they affect everything in your life. Your habits affect how much work you do or don't do, what you do and don't do, etc.
Everyone gets motivated at one point or another (and we are talking really, really motivated here), but what happens when that motivation dies (and it eventually will)? Simple. You revert back to your old habits.
We aren't saying you shouldn't try to change your habits because it's impossible. That isn't the case. As long as you continue to do something (for instance, making your bed) for an extended period of time (let's say at least two months), then this new habit will become part of your life.
"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones." -- Benjamin Franklin
For better or worse, your habits are who you are, and what you do. The sooner you eliminate the bad ones, the sooner you will achieve as much success as you want to achieve.
You can have everything you want in this lifetime, but you have to be willing to put in the work. You have to be willing to create new (good) habits and eliminate the bad ones. While it is perfectly fine to seek motivation whenever your heart desires, your legacy is not going to revolve around the person who was motivated every now and then. Your legacy will be based off of, more likely than not, what you did for the majority of your time. In every way imaginable, your habits will make or break you on your journey of success.
