Habits are what dictate your behaviour and if you learn to put the right ones in place, you'll succeed in any goal you set yourself. No, it won't happen overnight. No, it won't be easy. But yes, it will make you succeed. Yes, it will make you move forward. Yes, it will help you reach your goals and your dreams. And why wouldn't you want that?
Like lots of people I had a dream to travel the world. Not in bite size two week trips. I wanted to really travel and have the luxury of getting to know a country inside and out, to do yoga in India, stay with tribes in Vietnam and generally be a bit of a hippy with an income that required little work.
I hate talking about 'diets' I hate when the focus is on 'diet'- I really find these conversations pointless and almost on a level frustrating. You know when you tell yourself you can't have that, it's all you want. Psychologically I feel this is what restrictive diets do. You become obsessed with food, it is your only thought and it's draining.
