22. Creating Habits for Success

May 29, 2024
Host: Mo ElDeiry

In this episode, the focus is on cultivating habits for success, emphasizing the importance of consistency in daily actions. The podcast references FM Alexander’s quote, “People decide their habits and their habits decide their futures,” highlighting how habitual behavior shapes outcomes.

The speaker stresses that both action and inaction are habitual and yield respective results, using examples like overeating pizza or neglecting dental hygiene to illustrate the consequences of inconsistent behaviors. For effective networking and marketing, a strategic and routine approach is essential. The FLN program exemplifies this with its structured monthly Chapter Meetings and Power Lunches, facilitating consistent engagement among members. The speaker advises creating a list of referral sources and making daily contacts, avoiding the temptation to procrastinate.
