Habits are formed when we repeat something consistently over a period of time until it becomes second nature. The best habits are those which are formed intentionally and carried out daily with a specific outcome in mind. Good habits are a necessary ingredient for good success. Even if you’ve inadvertently formed bad habits, the good news is that you can change them by replacing them with good ones. What you need to do is to exercise self-discipline, or self-control, which is one of the fruits of the Spirit.
If you want the kind of success, in business or life in general, that’s pleasing to God you ought to intentionally build faith habits such as these:
The bible instructs us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17), meaning we need to cultivate a lifestyle of being in constant two-way communication with God. This is an essential faith habit for successful living.
The bible is the no.1 book when it comes to instructions on how to live victoriously in this life; don’t neglect to study it regularly. The Word of God is unique because it not only gives you the strategy on how to succeed, it also has the power to make you a success.
Psalm 1 summarizes it nicely when it says, “but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night….and in whatever he does, he prospers [and comes to maturity]. “(AMP).
If you want to experience success you must learn to control your words. Some people have a habit of speaking negatively most of the time and then wonder why they attract negativity. Learn to affirm your faith not your fears because your life will go in the direction of your words (James 3:6, Proverb 18:21).

Highly successful people do more than just dream, they take action. This often means stepping out of your comfort zone or taking risks. Make it a habit to talk less and do more because faith is incomplete without action to back it up. The Message translation puts it like this: “Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?” James 2:17 (MSG)
